Metal Madness

About two weeks ago, I mentioned that I had gotten a set of e.l.f. polishes (and showed you Red Velvet) and Metal Madness was also in the set.

This is a really gorgeous grey almost-metallic shimmer with sparse bits of holo glitter. It was surprisingly opaque in one coat, but took a century to dry, so after 10+ minutes of waiting, I just applied a quick dry top coat. I have no idea how long it would take to dry on its own, but it was still pretty tacky and smooshy after the 10 minutes.

The set also had Golden Goddess, which I used in one of my snowflake manis and although it's not very noticeable, I may do a swatch with it to show it off on its own. It also included Mod Mauve and Royal Purple. I am going to show you Mod Mauve tomorrow, but I thought Royal Purple looked familiar. I had gotten a 3-piece set from the e.l.f. website back in August and it was in that set. I have yet to swatch it either, though (I think). =P

I'll shut up now. Onto the pictures!

Inside, no flash. This shows almost more of a blue flash than anything.



No flash, blurred to attempt to show the holoness

The holo is very sparse, but I don't think it would look right if it were more dense. =P

What do you think? I don't have many greys, but I love this one!! =D
