Estee Lauder Metallic Sage Nail Lacquer is part of their limited edition Modern Mercury collection for fall 2011. And MAN you need this color!

I know it’s on the expensive side but this is one I can say without hesitation that most nail polish fanatics will regret not owning if they truly love greens.

The formula is fantastic. Thick and creamy, smooth and opaque. Just two coats. Perfection in a bottle.

Metallic Sage

Metallic Sage is a murky sage green base with heavy pink, gold and green shimmer. It’s not metallic at all, more shimmery in fact. It’s just amazingly gorgeous and has so much depth. In the bottle it doesn’t look nearly as impressive as on the nail. Just two coats and you have complete coverage.

Off the top of my head I can’t think of any dupes just yet but let me know if you think you might know of some and I can do a comparison.
