Loreal HiP Metallic Shadow: Gun Metal, Platinum

Loreal Hip Metallic Duos in Gunmetal, Platinum

The other day I blogged about Loreal's new Hip Metallic Shadows Duos.  Well, these shadows are so wonderful that two new shades came home with me yesterday.  Gun Metal - a metallic olive shade with forest/green shimmer and Platinum - a silver metallic shade with a black/silver shimmer.

Check out the swatches below.

Gun Metal is a pretty combintation of olive and forest green color.  The green shimmer in the darker shade is stunning along with gold undertones in the olive.   Platinum is a great combination to accomplish that smokey eye look.  It's also a great combination for a night out or holiday parties.

Check out my eye look with the Gun Metal Quad.

I literally put this together in two shakes of a lambs tail with no time or effort wasted.  Outstanding color payoff and pigmentation made the application like cake.  I love that you can mix and match with other Hip metallic colors.  The gold in the Gilded duo topped over Gun Metal looks amazing!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
