VVB Victoria, Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc Bamboo White

June 22, 2015

Happy #ManiMonday again folks!  As promised, I’m back with the 2nd nail polish from the VVB x Nails Inc collaboration – Bamboo White!

Victoria Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc Bamboo White

Similar to the other shade – Judo Red [reviewed here], Bamboo White comes in a hand frosted glass bottle made from the finest Venetian glass, and the sides are kept clear to show the nail polish shade contained inside.  Whereas Judo Red was bottled in a white glass bottle, Bamboo White comes in a contrasting black bottle!  Yes, I was expecting something black from Victoria Beckham as that is her signature color.

Bamboo White is described as a delicate bone shade, and on me it is an off-white beige with slight grey undertones.  Although it is formulated with the same stretch to fit technology as Judo Red, I found Bamboo White to be much less easy to apply.  It took me 3 coats to sufficiently cover my nails, not so much because of a lack of opacity, but it tended to be streaky and caused the coverage to appear uneven.  However, once it dried fully, and with a glossy clear top coat, it looked fairly level and did not emphasize any ridges on my nails.  Bamboo White is one of those timeless shades that will look chic and elegant in any season.  Having seen it in action on a number of my friends, I must note that it does look better against some skin tone then others.

Both VVB x Nails Inc nail polishes (Bamboo White and Judo Red) are limited edition, and are now available at Sephora, Nails Inc website [unaffiliated link], and other retailers.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend with their dads, I ended up spending Sunday at a friend’s home celebrating her daughter’s 3rd birthday, and had unbelievable fun watching my own son run around playing with the other kids!  It’s crazy how much I can love that kid.  On a not-so-nice note, I witnessed some cyber-bullying over Instagram, and when I showed some support to my friend, I started getting unfollowed as well.  I think I speak for bloggers alike when I say that we put our hearts and souls into our work… the best part is we don’t get paid for doing what we do.  Our only satisfaction is in knowing that there are like-minded people out there who actually takes time out to read our blog posts, and like our Instagram pictures, etc.  People may think we do it for the money and free stuff, but the truth is, this doesn’t pay the bills.  I don’t always have time to return every single Instagram like, and if your account is private I usually respect that, nor am I always the most prompt to reply every comment.  But I try my best, and I count many of my readers and followers as my friends and family.  Sure, follow or unfollow, it is your choice, and I sincerely hope that the day you start finding me a crap blogger or mindless Instagrammer, then please for goodness sake unfollow me.  But if you are doing it to send a message or out of spite, then I find that incredibly sad.

  1. The only decent one I found was essie, and I tried 7…

  2. Sigh. I don’t know where to start about the last part. Thanks so much for your support. I was so hurt to see how you and me were being dropped by one sentence I wrote, after working our back off for years and putting up reviews for free which they enjoyed and referred. And it goes on, even today… It seems they go on with it.

    And even funnier, one of the unfollowers asks me a question “what is the name of this product on the photo”

    After reading for free, they bully and unfollow, now am I supposed to answer?

    On a side note, love this nail polish lol.

  3. i’ve had this one on my list for a while! I think this looks great on you!

  4. Hey Linda, I know that white nail polishes are tricky in general. The only one I own is Chanel Eastern Light, and it’s not perfect but it’s workable. I do like this one on you as well!

    I would say that most people never see the amount of work bloggers put into the blogs, particularly those who actually have a full-time job!

      Yes, I was expecting a shade this light to be finnicky as well, but I guess after being so impressed with Judo Red the bar was set higher! Also, the recent les beiges polishes from Chanel were really easy to apply.

      As for the work bloggers put into preparing the blogs… it’s like preaching to the choir at times. Nobody will understand except fellow bloggers! 😉

    I’ve so far managed to evade any Instagram problems. But good on you for sticking up for someone. I can’t stand all that kind of drama and would quite happily welcome unfollows if that’s the type of people they are xx

    • silverkis says:

      Thank you for saying that! I can’t stand it when people gang up together, act all rednecked and start attacking others who have a different perspective from them! I think it’s very immature when it boils down to either agree with the herd or get out.

    Drama on Instagram? I hope you don’t let it bother you though. Many don’t understand what comes with blogging, and there are definite misunderstandings about how we work. It’s not easy to keep up with every single comment especially on Instagram, and some will say the particular blogger is arrogant for not replying. Geez…!
    On another note, there are some Instagrammers out there who are pretty short in replying comments. One in particular does sound snobbish, but maybe her age and her stance on followers might play a part.
    Either way, back to this nail polish… I actually really like the look of the colour! Too bad it doesn’t apply that well. It means for a sloppy person like me, I should just stay far far away. LOL!

    • silverkis says:

      Oh i suppose there are always all sorts of characters in the world, and it manifests online as well. Just that I can’t stand ignorance festering into group think. I’m all for democracy of ideas! Isn’t that the whole point of forums and blogs?

      Hahaha Lily, you are always saying you can’t apply nail polish, but i’m sure if I can do it, you can too! I’m really quite hopeless!!
