Bobbi Brown Raw Sugar Shimmer Nail Polish from the Raw Sugar Collection

Bobbi Brown has introduced two new, limited-edition shades of Shimmer Nail Polish with her Raw Sugar Collection: Raw Sugar and Golden Beige. I seldom get carried away with new nail polish shades. I can't wear them all! However, the magnetic color of Raw Sugar and its reasonable price ($15) combined to lure me into a purchase.

Dress up nails with long-lasting shimmer (it's Bobbi's favorite way to accessorize hands and toes). Pearlescent color casts nails in the starring role with a range of chic, shimmering shades.

I think this shimmering bronze is gorgeous. I took swatch photos in full, mid-day sun. What I see on my "fake nails" color wheel is a rose bronze. The color attracted me like a moth to light. I love rose gold, now I am looking at rose bronze, and I'm excited. I'd like an eye shadow next, please. Maybe even a bronzer.

You all know my nail polish application skills are not properly called skills. I did my best - two coats here - but I still didn't get an even application. Blame me, not the product! I have earned the nail polish application klutz title fair and square.

Despite my application failures, this color is, in my humble opinion, extraordinary. It's a limited edition, so don't delay in purchasing it if it grabs you like it has me.

The Raw Sugar Collection is available at Bobbi Brown's Web site, where there is a special gift now (overnight shipping through today along with a travel-sized SPF 50 Protective Face Base with any $50 order with code LONGWKD), or your favorite Bobbi Brown retailer.

Thanks for the heads up on this lovely polish. I'm a polish "hound," and NEED this color for summer. So, I just ordered it from the Bobbi Brown web site. Neither N.M. nor Sephora had it listed yet. Sincerely appreciate that you keep us up to the minute with new releases. Hope you and yours are feeling better.

Thanks for response on the BB tinted lip balm - I think I will go on the hunt in store for it over weekend. I am a total nail polish addict but with my devotion to Chanel and side interest in Dior and Tom F, I hopeI won't be tempted into BB as well! Susan, London

I love BB polishes. She doesn't make many, but they are extraordinary! Long-lasting,too, because I give them the weight training test and they pass it amazingly! I will stock up on these. I agree, Cg, the color is lovely, and perfectly summer.

That is really pretty. I've never bought a BB nail polish but I may give this one a try. Thanks for calling my attanetion to it.

I got this last week and love it! It really is beautiful. I also got the Beach fragrance. I read so many raves about it, but I'm lukewarm. The nail polish though, was a win.

Oh, CG, I think you did a wonderful job with the nail polish. I am afraid I already own the application clutz title with glops and gobs. I am new to your site and LOVE it. I found you when I was searching for a Lancôme product.

Oooh these look pretty! Soon I'll finally be able to wear nail polish again whenever I want to, so I'll have to remember these two for when that moment is finally there :-)
