Urban Decay Summer of Love Aquarius NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 1 - 2010

A stand out from the collection, Aquarius is a beautiful metallic mermaid teal that screams summer!

Application was sadly a bit of a PITA, you need at least 3 coats to achieve a good-looking finish owing to a slightly patchy formula that seems to apply extra-thinly in some areas despite care and concentration!

However, once applied… it’s a beautiful hybrid finish with just as much shimmer as metallic.  I doubt it’s a hugely unique shade, but I imagine it will be the jewel in the collection for many.

See my other swatches from the collection here and the Urban Decay Summer of Love Nail Kit as a whole, here.

    Oh wow, I adore this shade. Just gorgeous!

  2. Sirvinya says:

    Wow, that’s gorgeous!

  3. This is gorgeous and totally screams summer! It kind of has a frosty metallic look but without the streaks of most of that sort of formula. I wish UD would make normal sized polishes again.

  4. Jenni says:

    I love the look of the bottles more than the polishes. Looks great as a boxed collection.

  5. Anthea says:

    Ah I love! I havent worn shimery polishy for a little while now but i think for the summer I just might make an exception in favour of a colour like this. I think it will suit the beaches of Barbados pretty darn well!

  6. Kathiza says:

    I have a stupid question: How long do you let your nails dry to look this gorgeous? I always spend half an hour to apply three coats or four (if I use a base or topcoat) and then I let it dry for an hour and if I touch something, my nails are ruined again. No matter which brand I use, even if it’s an extra-fast-drying formular. It’s really frustrating…

    Love it! I just did my toe nails this colour last night, it looks great on tanned feet, very summery!

  8. gio says:

    That’s such a beautiful and summery shade!

  9. Wow, I would never have known it had such a bad formula :O
