BB Couture Stick Shift

Pin It
First off, I LOVE the name! Stick Shift is part of the Mechanics 101 collection from BB Couture Nail Polish for Men.  I don't know if it's supposed to be a little naughty, but I can't help but giggle like a little girl!

Stick Shift - not colour accurate

Stick Shift is a yellow of sorts, sort of with an orange tint and with beautiful pink shimmer! The first two photos are colour accurate and I included the last one to demonstrate the pink shimmer. It sort of looks white in the colour accurate photos, but it is a warm pink and so pretty. I suppose this would be considered an 'ugly' shade of lacquer, but I really adore SS!
It's really pigmented and needed 2 coats for good coverage. The formula was way better than most BB Coutures (I find them really watery), sort of a medium thickness with self-levelling abilities!

I was worried when I ordered SS that it would be too similar to Aura Angora from Barielle. Luckily it's not too mustard at all, and a lot brighter! I did a comparison for you guys below.

You can see that AA is darker, dirtier and has a plain creme finish. Comparing them made me really miss AA, so I'm going to have to incorporate it in to a manicure soon!

Does Stick Shift tickle your fancy too?
You can find it and many more polish brands at Overall Beauty. BB Couture retails for $9.95 a bottle.
