CoverGirl Seared Bronze

I have rather liked the couple of Hunger Games nail polishes from CoverGirl I've tried so far.  This one looked festive enough in the bottle that it was a perfect flying-to-visit-for-the-holidays sparkle.

Seared Bronze is a sheer golden bronze that has plenty of sparkle in most any light.  You can see by the wash of twinkly particles clinging to the side of the bottle both that it's way sheer and that it's a ultrafine microglitter.  This is 3 coats, and there's still some VNL going on, especially when the light shines through.

There's definitely multiple colors to the microglitter, and in real life, it looks like more than just the gold and copper here - I occasionally saw subtle flashes of green and pink - but to the eye at a distance (as in, how normal people would see your nails), it's bronze.

Even in low light, this has a glass fleck glimmer; it never appears visually smooth.  But don't be fooled, there is almost no actual texture at all, and one layer of topcoat is plenty to make this glassy smooth to the touch.  Removal is NBD as well.

Rating:  3 out of 5 stars.  It's a pretty color staple, and totally worth the couple of bucks I paid for it.

Where to buy:  CG is a national brand, so available at most grocery and drug stores.
