Cuccio Colour Nudetrals Collection *Picture Heavy*

Hi! I hope you all had a great weekend. It was the husband's birthday on Saturday so we took advantage of the weather and went skating and then met up with the rest of the family at a favourite sushi restaurant. (Any restaurant that gives me free Pocky is a fav in my books. ;) ) We also bought his & hers "wearable tech" and have been intrigued, particularly with the sleep tracker.

Anywho, on to the polish!

After swatching and enjoying Sun Kissed from Cuccio I decided to swatch the rest of the Nudetrals collection and, I have to say, I was super impressed. If they were easier to find, Cuccio would likely take top spot for retail brands.

Note: After swatching Sun Kissed I changed my lighting set-up, hence the difference in the collage. Sorry. :/

Formula note: Across the board I found the formula on all of these was good. Most required only two coats (keep in mind I use a heavier hand) and there was very little clean-up needed. Also, as I mentioned in the Sun Kissed post, I quite like the brushes - they have a nice bend and spread well across my nail.


Blush Hour is a lovely rose colour with gold shimmer and tiny silver square glitter. Super pretty and delicate. Shown here is two coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

Fair Game is a white with subtle pink shimmer that is on the sheer side. The shimmer adds an interesting element that makes this a white I could easily wear on its own. Shown here is three coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

Grey's Anatomy is a blue-grey with gold shimmer and tiny silver square glitter. When we saw this collection at Cosmoprof this was the colour that stood out to me. We can all just agree that this is gorgeous, yes? Shown here is two coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

Nude-a-Tude is an amazing pinky neutral with subtle flakes/shimmer. I think this my new favourite neutral. It goes so well with my skin tone, I was actually in awe when I was applying it. Shown here is two coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

Oh Naturale is a yellow/green leaning neutral with the same subtle flakes/shimmer as Nude-a-tude. As you can see in the swatches, it doesn't play well with my skin tone so I likely won't get a lot of wear out of it. Formula was nice. Shown here is two coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

Olive You is an grey-toned, olive green and is another favourite. It has the same gold shimmer and tiny silver square glitter as Sun Kissed, Blush Hour, and Grey's Anatomy. It's LOVE! Shown here is two coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat..

Skin to Skin is another lovely neutral, this time a creamy beige colour. It also has the subtle flakes/shimmer that Nude-a-tude and Oh Naturale have. Although this does lean a little yellow it's way friendlier with my skin tone than Oh Naturale was. Shown here is two coats with one coat of HK Girl top coat.
