Metrochic 0031

A few of you requested a swatch of this color after I raved about it a few weeks back, et voilà – a photo just for you! I cannot stress how much I adore this varnish; the creamy, almost milky finish is close to perfection (and dries rather quickly as well), and the color absolutely fantastic. Somehow a combination of my three favorite shades: purple, grey, and taupe, form the most beautiful dirty purple I’ve yet laid eyes on (or dirrty, with two “r’s” as Christina Aguilera would sing?). All I can say is that I am elated that it is finally in my humble little collection; after eyeing it for forever and listening to Laura (Lollipop26) rave about it, I knew I had to have it.

It definitely is an unusual color, quite different from the conventional hues most turn to. Sophisticated, but edgy (or so I like to think), it is now my holy grail autumn nail varnish.

    It’s such an amazing color! I’d seriously die to have all the Sephora by Opi shades.

    I love how a lot of different colours have been coming out lately. My current faves are blues & purples.

    Hello, I love that nail colour on you! I’m currently wearing You Don’t Know Jacques, a bit similar to Metrochic but more on the taupe side. I like the bit of purple in this colour as you pointed out, I will have to give it a try! Take care 🙂
