Lets drink to your unique sense of style and passion for fashion with the trendsetting palette of luscious lacquers that help turn any mundane moment into your personal HAPPY HOUR!" according to the official ad release.
The 8 new shades comprising the Summer 2016 Cocktail Collection include-
Strawberry Colada: a light glittery peony pink.
White Russian: a creamy milky white.
Pink Lady: a carnation pink cream.
Pink Champagne: a light ballet slipper pink cream.
Mojito: a light lemon yellow cream.
Bloody Mary: a see thru tomato red.
Long Island: a pumpkin orange cream.
Blue Hawaiian: a robin's egg blue cream.
(all swatches shown here are two coats, and are taken outdoors in natural light).
This latest collection from Cuccio is a very fun and festive themed one, in my opinion one of the best themed collections yet from them! I love that all of the shades are named after cocktails and that for the most part really embody the spirit and essence of the name reflected in the shade.
I think this is a very wearable color palette offering lots of colors I see clients requesting.
I found most of the shades to be highly pigmented, and they all painted on smoothly and evenly providing full coverage in two coats.
My personal favorites are: Strawberry Colada and Long Island.
