NOTD - No7 & OPI Gunmetal shades

I absolutely love gunmetal shaded nail polishes just really alternative and something different from all the nude shades I wear. 

My two favourites have to be the gorgeous OPI Lucerne-Tainly Look Marvelous from the Swiss collection - such a shimmery gunmetal shade and the molten looking No7 Stay Perfect Silver Mercury. Both apply so easily and beautifully, though you do have to watch Silver Mercury for that brush stroke look that can happen with really metallic polishes. 
As I love both polishes but sometimes find OPI Lucerne slightly to light I decided to layer them and see if it made the shimmer abit more intense. 

The results are abit of a fail as you can see, mainly as there isn't much difference between the OPI shade on it's own or with the No7 shade underneath. 
Though I do think my favourite is 1 coat Silver Mercury with 1 coat Lucerne-Tainly Look Marvelous over the top. It's just that bit deeper and more shiny. 

Either way both shades are so gorgeous!

Gunmetal shades seem quite hard to come by especially on the highstreet so I think No7 have done really well with the shade. 
Though I have spotted a lovely one by Avon, aptly named 'Gunmetal' and a nice one by Bourjois (though they always seem hugely overpriced for some reason). 

Would love if anyone could recommend any affordable gunmetal shades to try out next!

  7. the No.7 one is quite good, i never used their products.

  8. I love the No.7 one, I've still got my fiver voucher for them, think I know what I'm going to spend it on now! I've fallen out with OPI of late, they just never seem to do anything different!

  9. I love the look of gunmetal polish, especially because it's not as harsh as black ... but I have yet to find a shade that doesn't chip easily! Every metallic polish I have tried chips within a few short days. Argh!

    Love your blog, by the way!
