Metallic 4 Life

Name: Metallic 4 Life

Collection: Nicki Minaj Coll

Colour: Black Gel with Silver Flecks

Coats: 2

Pros: Tough and trendy, this hard hitting polish is so fun to wear because it blends darkness with glam in a stunning combination. It was pretty easy to put on but did get a little gloopy near the tips. The first goes on as more of a dark grey gel with sparkles so I think it could even be tried as a sort of top coat for a light polish. The flecks of silver within the polish vary in size shape, adding a bold, broken mirror look effect. I like that it is more exciting than just plain black or “Lincoln Park After Dark.” I would definitely wear this to a club or concert, especially with a leather jacket!

Cons: Unfortunately, when this polish chips, it really falls apart in big chunks and it doesn't take long for this to happen. This is another reason why I would wear this for like one night out as it is high impact for a short time.

Similar shades: I really can’t think of anything like this polish other that “DS Mystery” which is more of a purple-black with lots of fine shimmer dust. Also, you could try a black polish like “Black Onyx” and add a top coat of “Crown Me Already”
