BadAss Polish Brew Crew

Good morning!!  BadAss Polish is debuting their spring lineup including a highly appropriate baseball themed glitter.  Allow me to introduce you to Brew Crew, named for BadAss's home state ball club, the Milwaukee Brewers.



 
Brew Crew is a collection of matte glitters-- large yellow hexes, small cobalt blue and white hexes, and cobalt blue rectangles finished with a smattering of silver and gold shimmers, all suspended in a clear base.  This glitter is pure fun.  It's easy to get out of the bottle and onto the nail-- minimal fishing required.  BadAss's formula has improved already with this second collection, which is kind of amazing because there wasn't much to complain about before.  For a large glittered polish, this applies beautifully.  
I used one coat of Brew Crew over three coats OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!.  The delicate, sheer white offsets the bright and cheerful glitters beautifully and makes this a fun riff on this spring's glitters in a milky white base trend.  Two layers of topcoat smooth Brew Crew out nicely.


If you're unfamiliar with BadAss Polish, their presentation and packaging is second to none.  Each polish comes in these cute, sturdy little tubes lined with a piece of felt and instructions on using it for glitter removal.

And one more, because we are talking about a baseball themed polish, after all...


 Brew Crew will be available for purchase March 13 (tomorrow!) for $8.75 + shipping at BadAss Polish's etsy shop here.

    1. Thank you!! :) And yes, cool, huh? I'm still holding out hope for some NBA glitters, particularly the Phoenix Suns...but a Bucks themed glitter would be gorgeous, too....

  2. Ok I have to say I really like the glitter but my favorite part of this manicure was layering it over a french base. Seriously I'm so in love with this whole look!

  4. Hi sis - what an awesome way to wear this colorful glitter!!!! I might just hop on the bandwagon and try this with one of my multicolored glitters too!!! Baseball is not big here in Europe - I think all we know of this sport is from the movies. It is all about soccer here (...sigh....). Have a wonderful rest of the day xxx

    1. Yes, it is the great American passtime, lol ;) I'm more of a basketball gal, myself. C's been to a soccer game and said it was the most fun he's ever had at a sports event. And I think you'd love BadAss. It's like glitter for grownus-- they've all been very classy sso far :)

  6. What a great springy or summery polish! Love the blue/yellow/white combo-- one of my faves, and I also like how you've layered it over a neutral cream (color) base. Looks great!

    1. It is a cheerful glitter :) It'll be fun to layer it over some brighter cremes once summer rolls around.

    1. Such a great touch, isn't it? I haven't used any of mine, though, because I like the luxe feel of it in the packaging, lol. All my BadAsses stay in their tubes. ;p
