Cuccio Colour Veneer Pastel Collection Spring 2014

Cuccio Colour Veneer Pastel Collection Spring 2014 0

I recently got my hands on the la

test collection for Spring 2014 from the folks of Cuccio and I LOVE it!! The collection is comprised of 6 highly pigmented and beautiful pastel shades that will definitely satisfy even the pickiest of salon customers.

The colors include-

Pinky Swear: a pretty pastel pink.

Quick as a Bunny: a light cement gray.

Life’s a Peach: a creamy pastel peach. Reminds me of peach flavored yogurt from when I was a kid.

In the Key of Lime: almost a pure chartreuse.  It is a perfect cross between yellow and lime green.

Mint Condition: a pastel green mint. Reminds me of the melt-away mints from my childhood.  One of my favorite shades in the collection.

Under a Blue Moon: the perfect cornflower blue.  This is my personal favorite color in the collection!  It reminds me a lot of Essie’s highly popular “Bikini so Teeny,” but this is so much better because it’s gel and will not chip.

All swatches shown here are 2 coats, each cured for 30 seconds in an LED lamp.

CUCCIO Colour Veneer LED/UV Nail Colour Fall 2013 Pt. 2 0

I recently finished trying the last of the Fall 2013 collection of Cuccio Colour Veneer gel polishes. I was very pleased with the formula on all of the colors, with a few shades in particular I like to call “1 coat Wonders.

See it all in Montreal: ballet slipper soft natural baby pink.

Turkish Delight: flamingo rose pink.

Rio Carnival: sparkling fiery orange bronze.

St. Barts in a Bottle: true perfect aqua/ cerulean blue.  reminds me instantly of the ocean and the beach; vacation in a bottle- truly.A “1 coat Wonder”– only required a single coat & the color was perfectly rich and opaque. This can in effect save half the time of a manicure!

Argentinian Aubergine: bright plum. A “1 coat Wonder!” only requires a single coat and is fully opaque.

On the Nile Blue: scintillating midnight blue. A “1 coat Wonder!” only requires a single coat and is fully opaque.

Beijing Night Glow: vampyshimmery burgundy.

Oh my Prague: metallic gunmetal. A“1 coat Wonder!” only requires a single coat and is fully opaque.

All swatches shown  here have 2 coats of gel, cured each for 30 seconds in an LED lamp.  I find all Cuccio Colour Veneer gel polishes to have an excellent smooth self-leveling formula that doesn’t run or drip.
