A very good UK friend of mine will often indulge me by helping me acquire European Nail Polish that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to get my hands on – thank goodness! Because these babies are hot! Cetuem is an upscale UK brand with a pretty expansive lineup of over 240 colors. After sending me 214 as a gift, I wanted more. Even after 5 more polishes, I have the feeling that this is not the end of my Cetuem purchasing!
The first three are glitters that were ostensibly full coverage in 3-4 coats. Mostly three, but I had to add another layer on a few nails for touch up purposes. Number 92 was what I’d consider a typical glitter size but 85 and 162′s glitter was almost sand like, it was so small. All three of these glitters are set in a clear base (can you believe it?) and the first coat left me thinking that there was no way I was going to get full coverage. But by coat two, I realized that it wasn’t going to be a problem as the glitter builds up fast.
Number 214 was a robust duochrome. Or perhaps should I say trichrome because it went from brick to brown to gold. This is probably one of the most discernible duochromes I own, each color was so extremely distinct and visible. Number 120 was a bit more sheer than I anticipated, but three coats still did the trick. I am always a sucker for this mossy type green. Number 180 is the mutha of all foils. Highly metallic, super pigmented and, well…. <3! I hope they come out with more of these because they definately nailed this finish.
