Estee Lauder 'Metallic Sage' Nail Lacquer

A while back, I had my first experience using an Estee Lauder nail polish, and I had absolutely loved it! When I saw a the new collection for Estee Lauder and saw the polish Metallic Sage, I instantly fell in love with it and knew I had to have it. You will see why I am becoming increasingly impressed with the EL nail lacquers!

Metallic Sage ($19.00, Limited Edition) is a dirty gray-toned olive green with loads of gold shimmer. The color is hard to describe, but it is a darker sage green and under some lighting, it is more of a khaki green. This is very expensive, but I LOVE this color sooo much. It went opaque in one coat, and it looks simply amazing. If you are interested, you can check it out at Nordstrom and if you don not like  it, you can always return it :)

You can checkout Vampy Varnish's review, which I totally agree with. And you check out Scrangie's review (although I do not agree with her opinion on the formula).

*I am wearing a base coat and 1 coat of Metallic Sage. No topcoat! Insane, right?


 *This polish was sooo difficult to photograph! The green looks a little more saturated in the photos. In real life, it is a dustier and more of a sage green. But,the gold shimmer is extremely accurate in the photos. The gold shimmer is very heavy and not subtle at all.

Verdict
I love the formula, color, shimmer, and packaging! Price? Not so much. This is definitely not something everyone will want to buy. But, as I am an over obsessive makeup and nail polish junkie, I had to have it.But other than the price, it is absolutely perfect!

Rating: 9.5/10 (-.5 for high price!)
Recommend? I would recommend it to people who love to "invest" in high quality nail polishes,and also to other over obsessive junkies ^_^
Repurchase? Hm...thats a tough one.I am going to say no. But I will say that if Estee Lauder releases any other colors similar to this, I will be all over them!
