Cuccio Colour Iron Clad

Cuccio Nail polishes have finally arrived here! This is really exciting, as I've been seeing all these amazing shades they have. I picked up a few polishes last week. One of them is Iron Clad from the Precious Metals collection, which looks and feels a lot like OPI Suede.
It took me a while to choose this shade, because the collection has 7 polishes. I chose the one that wasn't blue (since I have 2 blue-ish OPI Suede shades) and the one I thought I would wear the most.
So Iron Clad it is, a shade I would most likely call purple\aubergine matte shimmer. I like that this polish dries really fast AND it needs only one (!) coat.

 With top coat it looks equally great:

NOTD China Glaze Recycle

Whenever I get tired of wearing bright or dark polishes on my nails, I usually go for pale and seer jellies, something like OPI Soft Shades. But this time I chose a polish that I always overlook, and was surprised by the result.
For some reason grey polishes I own don't get used often. I guess they just seem very boring. But this time I decided to wear Recycle, and I just loved it! It turned out to be the perfect shade of grey :)
Not too dark, not too pale, just right. And I really liked the formula and texture. I used two coats, and the polish seemed to self-level as well. Now I will definitely use it more often!

Estee Lauder Pure Color 08 Metallic Green

 Hey guys! Today I would like to share with you a lovely metallic green polish from Estee Lauder. This was given to me as a gift, and it probably one of the most pigmented polishes I have ever tried. I only needed one (!) coat. As a metallic polish it shows the imperfections of the nails, but to my mind much less than other polishes of this type. It dries really, really fast, and is not particularly shiny on the surface. I really like the faded sage green colour, it changes the way it looks depending on the light source, from very pale, almost grey to a more vibrant green.
I also wore this polish with a top coat. I don't think it changes the way it looks that much, it just adds visible shine on the surface of the nails.
