BECCA and I Invite You To Have a Cuppa Billy Tea!

 BECCA the brand that does neutrals best introduced three new nail colours with their fall Lost Weekend Collection and I have to say, along with the blushes, they are the standout of the collection. All three are creams and über shiny/glossy–so pretty! I think neutrals are so elegant and chic especially for fall.

  • Billy Tea – a mid- brown taupe cream
  • Toasted Marshmallow – a soft pinky brown cream
  • Saddle Up! –  a tan caramel

These polishes also dry really quick which is a plus and did I mention how shiny they are? 🙂 We all know what a toasted marshmallow looks like but what the heck is Billy Tea? I did a little research and discovered it really is an Australian tea. Billy Tea is brewed in a billy or small can, tin or pot used on a campfire for boiling water/tea. So the term “billy up to the fire” basically means, “put the kettle on”.  I tried all three on my hand and decided to go with Billy Tea for this weeks manicure–figures, I’ve never developed a taste for coffee, I’m a tea lover all the way.

BECCA claims their nail colours last at least 5 days and have a “self-leveling” formula for ease of application. I had no problems with streaking and two coats delivered plenty of pigment. The formula is TFCDF free; free from Formaldehyde, Toluene, Camphor and Di Butyl Phthalate. Currently BECCA only has 6 shades available–three from this summer’s Halcyon Collection and these three. I’m looking forward to the expansion of the colors!

So Glossy!!

Which shade is your favorite? Do you like neutrals for fall nail color?

  • I like Billy Tea the best. Since Becca isn’t available locally I’ve never seen the nail polishes but now I’ll have to keep my eye out for them.

  • These colors are gorgeous. I love neutrals all the time – no matter what season. They’re great for work without going the traditional light pink route! I think I like Billy Tea the best. What’s the price on these babies?

  • I love Billy Tea, and Toasted Marsh,allow looks interesting too. I wear neutrals year round, and will definitely be adding these to my collection.

    I really like Billy Tea (I wasn’t sure I would from just the pic of the bottle, but I love it on your nails!). Another BECCA item to fall for….sigh….
