Idi Metallic Effect Francio and Cuprico



Today I have two polishes from Argentina for you. My very dear friend from work, Antonella, went to Argentina for her most recent vacation and brought me back three ├╝ber-cool polishes from the Argentinean brand Idi.

First up Idi Metallic Effect Francio:




I applied two coats of Idi Francio over Butter London Nailfoundation. Francio has a fantastic formula and nearly applies by itself ;-)!!!! The color leaves me speechless, so sorry that I cannot come up with any further babble ;-) except: thank you Antonella for having brought this beauty to my polish-crib!!!

The second polish is Idi Metallic Finish Cuprico and looks is a grayish blue with lots of silver sparkle on the nails:



The formula is really sheer but not thin. I needed three coats to get it opaque enough for my taste. Application was very easy though and dry time very quick. I used Butter London Nailfoundation as Base Coat. Cuprico is totally unique in my stash. In the below picture you can see how varying the colors are shifting.

I am eager to hear your thoughts on these two!!!

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!

    1. Hi Yun - thank you so much for visiting my Blog :-)!!! I first thought Francio would be a dupe for Zoya Song but you put it so right, it is incredibly vibrant and bright and definitvely different enough for me (I am a blue polish hoarder)
