Polish Finish Series: Metallic

Hey there!
It's time for another episode of Polish Finish Series! Today I want to talk about the Metallic.
Metallic polishes, like the name already suggests, make your nails look a little like metal. They mainly come in the traditional metallic shades such as gold, copper and silver. But there are more and more metallic finishes with other, brighter colors.
The thing that makes the metallic look like a metallic is the shimmer. It is very fine and most of the time silvery, but it's not really frosty. The shimmer of the metallic is a lot smoother than the frost, but the big amount of shimmer particles can sometimes cause visible brush strokes.
Metallics aren't one of the most popular finish, not every brand makes them. But they're still rather common and also a lot of drugstore brands have metallics.
Some metallics can look a little like foils *click*, since the shimmer can be very similar.
As some examples I have these here:
First of, Essie - Trophy Wife. It's a turquoise metallic, and you can see the metallic shimmer nicely. It's not a traditional metallic color, but super pretty nonetheless.
The other one I want to show you is Coquettish Brown by Shu Uemura. It's a very interesting copper/silver/lilac/bronze shade, super pretty with the metallic shimmer! It has this little foil-like look to it, but it is a metallic in my opinion.
What do you think of Metallics?
xoxo, Misch
