Accessorize Illusion Nail Polish in Bronze

My new obsession is currently duochrome nail polishes! I'm sure this is probably one of those trends that has been seen before, then disappeared and made a comeback a bit like the crackle-top coat, but these are new to me and I can't get enough of them. MAC launched an innovative line of duochromes with the Disney Venomous Villains collection last year and since then there's been a few other brands catching onto this trend.

For me Accessorize have scored another hit with their nail polishes (I wrote previously about their rather gorgeous baked eyeshadows and merged blushers). The ordinary range of nail polishes are worth a look anyway, but I noticed on a lower, almost hidden shelf, they stocked these "illusion" nail polishes. They are a range of glitter and duochrome polishes, each very unique and pretty. The glittery polishes might be more suitable as a top coat, especially the silver and gold glitters, and some of the duochromes were very bold so you might want to reserve them for a special occasion, but I found this rather lovely little polish in Bronze. I love metallics, and this is a gorgeous contrast of burnt purpley bronze, and golden orange. It's quite hard to describe, and easier if you see it for yourself so here's a couple of shots in different lights catching the different colours. I think it's a lovely colour and makes a change from the norm. I missed out on the MAC duochromes because they sold out too quickly, but this is a perfect substitute, particularly since this is a colour that I can wear during weekdays.
Accessorize Illusion polishes are available from Superdrug priced £4.00.

Hello, off to Superdrug then... Models Own also do a gorgeous taupey mauve one called (I think) Mystic Mauve. Really pretty pale colour.
