I have a nail post to share with you guys today! Today's post [obviously] features Face Of Australia Molten Metallics Collection, which is a collection released back in 2011, before the Barbados Collection that I've posted about earlier this year!
The Molten Metallics Collection features 8 stunning shades and from what I see in other bloggers' swatches, there's about 3 shades that has added shimmers and 5 which are very true metallics.
I actually only own three shades in Gold, Bronze and Verdigris, so leggo!
Gold is one of those shades in the collection with a foil-y finish. It has a metallic base, with added silver shimmers which looks so beautiful! My favourite out of the three I own! It applies wonderfully opaque in two coats!
Verdigris, to me is a very spooky shade. I'm not sure why!! LOL! I don't think I've seen such a shade like this in my life! It's like a dark warm-toned green with muted tones. Err.. you gotta see for yourself, but unlike Gold and Bronze, Verdigris is a true metallic that I'd prefer with 3 coats for a more opaque finish.
Like Gold, Bronze is also of the same foil-y finish! The shade is like a burnt warm-toned brown, with lotsa shimmers. Applied nicely with two coats -- no problemo! But I didn't like this shade as much as I love the finish... It looks kinda old on my hands... :(
The consistency of the polishes are thin, but surprisingly don't apply to be sheer which means thumbs up for that! A second thumbs up for the brush! I loved that it flared out perfectly to the shape of my cuticles (?) :)
As for wear time, these polishes lasted a good 4 days on my nails with minor tip wear!
Although this collection is from last year, don't fret! You can still purchase them online at Fashion Addict! ;)
So let me know...
Which do you like better? Foil or metallic nail polishes?
