CND’s Vinylux Mercurial (253)

Going just by the official artwork, this should be a little bit more gold-toned. I think that I see some gold flashes at certain angles, like a pale gold-ish duochrome. But…it’s not an all-over thing, and it isn’t very strong, so it could easily be my brain trying to make allowances for what should be there…but manifestly is not.

What this polish is, is a good-quality, even-spreading, durable bright-pewter foil. It could almost be a one-coater, but that second coat gives the finished manicure a bit more depth.
