Maybelline Metal Icon

Standard

Maybelline LE Metal Icon

Metal Icon is the second shade I have to show you from the Maybelline LE 2012 Fall Fashion Week Nail Polish Collection.  Click here to see my review and swatches of Downtown Brown.  The displays that carry these polishes have been popping up everywhere, so you should have no problems finding them now.

Metal icon is a gorgeous taupey silver polish.  The shimmers are actually multi-tonal, which you can see best in the bottle if you enlarge the photo of my swatch done in sunlight.  There is just enough lavender in the shade to keep it from being largely forgettable and bring it up to unique status.  The shade looks really beautiful on the nail and is perfect for Fall.

All of these swatches are two coats, followed by Seche Vite topcoat.  I found that the application was smooth, though thinner coats are recommended to avoid streaks.  I have seen other reviews that claim Metal Icon needs three coats, but you can see that I achieved full opacity with only two, so I’m not sure what the issue is.  I think Metal icon is a lovely shade, and totally worth getting.

About beautyinbudgetblog

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
