Sephoras New Metallic Nail Polish: Swatches
Along with the glittering nail polish, Sephora introduces metallics to the brand. A colorful range of 22 new shades sure to please your appetite.
Each is packaged in a compact, signature, travel friendly bottle sized at 0.16 oz (mini size for your reference). Priced at $5 each and only available at Sephora stores.
Deborah Lippmann's, Purple Rain comes to mind when I think of a true metallic nail polish. So, just to clarify that these are shimmery metallics verses the traditional textures. Thank goodness!
The formula was perfect. Most shades only required a two coat application, which you'll see in my swatches below. And, you don't have to worry about streak lines because these are mostly shimmer based.
Check out some swatches below.
Merengue - a purple pink berry with gold and purple shimmer. This one reminds me of a lighter version of OPI's, Queen of Web-erly.
Zouk - bright aqua blue with matching shimmer.
Gothik - black grey charcoal with rainbow shimmer.
Modern - rich purple eggplant loaded with blue shimmer.
Fusion - a muted gold bronze that's a close alternative to Covergirl's Bronzed Beauty. Sephora's is more "gold" when compared to Covergirl's "bronze" color.
Overall, if you fancy shimmer based polishes, you'll love these new ones from Sephora. Have a wonderful day!
