Above & Below: Taken with flash.
Below: Not the best picture quality, but I wanted to show you how the color compares to a Nickel. Cords seems to have a bit of bronze in it, so it's darker and different than your standard silver shade. No flash.
Here is the second of the six polishes in this set (Let's Groove was posted below, earlier today). This is a hard shade for me to describe...in the bottle and on the nail I thought it looked to be the color of a nickel coin. But as you can see in the photos, it's darker than that and seems to have a touch of bronze, giving it a less 'silver' look. It's a silver shade, but perhaps Pewter is a better comparison. It is not as bright as stainless steel, but in the same shade family. I'm also unsure as to how to describe the finish. It's a subtle shimmer, but it also appears to be somewhat metallic. Is it a shimtallic? A Metimmer? The pictures were taken at close range, but from a normal viewing distance I'd say it looks more metallic than shimmery. Coming next will be Short & Sassy, a deep garnet red shimmer. Stay tuned for more!
