Bobbi Brown & Elevation Polish

Hello :)  I'm sad that I broke a nail and it is my left ring finger !!  I have no clue how I did it but oh well ...

Anyway, I have a couple of polishes from Bobbi Brown "Desert Twilight" Limited Edition.  I picked these up at Nordstrom and you could also find these at Sephora.

Bottle shot

First up is Twilight - 2 coats w/topcoat - a shimmery plum shade boasting dark chocolaty depth - looks quite dark on me
Direct sun - blurry to show shimmer
Next up is Turquoise - 2 coats w/topcoat - a vibrant turquoise
Topped with a coat of Elevation Polish Ama Dablam - micro multi colored glitter,  micro copper colored glitter, green teal square glitter, blue teal holographic hex glitter, copper colored round glitter
Bottle - I am thinking my Ama is bleeding as I thought it was a clear base?
I love both of the BB's polishes and formula/application are flawless.  So ... which one is your favorite?

UPDATE on Ama Dablam:  Emailed Lulu right after I posted and she replied right away ..  it does have a slight copper tint to it, plus the reflection of all the copper.  After all, it is not bleeding. 

Thank you for dropping by.

Oohh loving these BB polishes! I like Turquoise the best and oh no about Ama Dablam! I'm going to have to check mine too to see if it is bleeding!

hello Bomb!!
I read your post and my fingers ache for you LOL . I have all natural nails and I have actually broken one turning over in bed before ;what a hoot huh?
And there have been times one broke and I had no idea how.No matter how careful you are;it happens.
And at least once a year I will cut mine back; and let them refresh and strengthen.
