NOTD - Estee Lauder Metallic Sage (from the Modern Mercury collection)

This is Metallic Sage, a new limited edition Pure Color nail polish from Estee Lauder. It's part of the Modern Mercury collection for A/W 2011, which is released on Monday 1 August. Metallic Sage is the only nail product in the collection, but it definitely holds its own within a collection of edgy metallics eye shades and matte lip colours.

The base is a very dark khaki/olive green, which is lifted by bronze metallic shimmer. It's essentially a creme + shimmer particles, rather than a metallic shade - the bronzey effect is quite subtle. It's much more obvious in the bottle than on the nail, but it's definitely there, and is particularly noticeable in dim lighting.

Wear is predictably excellent. I've been wearing it for 4 days now and it's only just beginning to wear off at the tips.

Pure Colour Nail Lacquer is £14 for 9ml, available from counters nationwide and at
