Morning! It’s Friday, who’s feelin’ it?
I finally have my Rococo Nail Apparel swatches ready for ya’ll! I know I am a total tease by posting the box pics awhile ago, then not showing the swatches until now. So sue me. 🙂
Still you gotta admit, you’ve never seen nail polish come in such a pretty package, have you? And the color combo is one of my favs too.
Ok so I read about this company quite awhile ago in a magazine because of their polish called Gold Leaf Lacquer, which has actual 24K gold leaf inside it! I thought about getting it, but passed because of the price which is about $30-35.
BUT recently I was at my Bloomingdales in San Francisco and I spotted a little Space.NK apothecary, which I hadn’t seen before. Lo and behold I saw Rococo bottles and I was so excited! After much debate on which colors to buy I settled for the ones that just totally grabbed me and I couldn’t stop looking at. Because they were on the pricey side (I think they were around $22.00) I only got two.
The formula on these was spectacular! The were smooth, even, not too thin not too thick and opaque in two coats. Just as you would hope from an expensive brand like this. Check them out!
Andromeda is a gorgeous grey-brown packed with holographic glitter. Isn’t it amazing? This is such a unique color and trust me when I say it’s even more amazing in person. It’s SUPER holographic also, nothing wimpy about it. It’s so smooth and opaque in just two coats.
Metal Jacket is a brown coppery metallic packed with multi-colored shimmer. This one is also truly amazing. I happen to love copper colors and anything chocolate brown, so this is now one of my favorites. I can’t think of anything I have like it. This was two coats.
I am really happy I finally found these and got them. I am definitely wanting to try more of them now that I had such a great experience with these two!
As I mentioned above you can find these at Space.NK, or Cult Beauty or (try your local Bloomingdales or similar department stores), but they do ship from the UK, so if you live elsewhere shipping might be an issue.
What do you guys think about Rococo?
LURRRRRVE those colors! Andromedia, actually looks identical to one of my favorite colors by OPI “My Private Jet”

It is similar but much more brown actually.
Wow, they’re truly amazing! And the boxes are so cute, my favourite colours 🙂 VV, I hope you’re feeling better. I’m sorry for your loss.
Thank you 🙂 These are really cool, huh?
These are amazing! The packaging is gorgeous too.
Isn’t it great? I wish they had a blue/brown combo instead!
Okay I am majorly drooling over Andromeda…its very similar to My Private Jet, and Revvolution, but not similar enough that I won’t buy it..now I’m on the hunt!
Hi Jackie S.,
It is similar but more chocolate-y brown. Have at it!
I am totally feelin Friday!! Whoo hoo!! And what a way to start my weekend, going to bloomies right after work!! Luv the colors-they are truely fabulous and unique! Thanks for the swatches and have a great weekend!!
Alright, I hope you find these!!
Metal Jacket is absolutely gorgeous! I’ve never seen a polish quite like that.

It really is amazing. Do you think you will get any of them?
Wow! Metal Jacket is GOR-GEOUS! And l love the adorable packaging
Yay! I wish all polish came in packaging this nice. Then again maybe that’s why it’s so expensive 🙂
Andromedia looks amazing! However, the price is killin’ me.
.-= Phyrra´s last blog ..Concrete Minerals – A Review =-.
Yeah I know I wanted a few more but no way!
I love it when pricey polishes actually live up to expectations. If I’m shelling out any more than $10/bottle, there had better be liquid perfection inside!
Ooh I love these colors! I have been wanting to go shopping in SF (the best Macys ever!) so I might stop by Bloomingdales to check these out!
I have been dying to go to the Macy’s in NYC someday. It’s the biggest department store in the world (I think)!
I mean… I’ve had a nailgasm. I literally had no thought other than ‘MUST HAVE THESE’.

Gorgeous! I love them both. I’m so glad the formulas were so great. I would love to see the swatches in the sunshine. The copper one is so amazing!
Hi SB Sweetie,
Andromedia was taken in the sunshine. Metal Jacket wasn’t, I took that earlier indoors when it was raining.
I must have Metal Jacket.

Wow, Metal Jacket is sooo fabulous, exactly the color I love. I just can’t shell out the dough for ’em.
.-= Arrianne´s last blog ..Sinful Haul and Cherry Culture =-.
Oh, WOW. These are gorgeous! I want to check them out in person, like, now 🙂

Do you know how many times in the last couple of months I have picked up and put down Metal Jacket? It is gorgeous, isn’t it? Wishing I bought it now! Looks amazing. In fact, they both do. I have Molten Lava, the shimmery beigeish one. I love thins brand.

Hmm, I think Andromedia reminds me of ” My Private Jet “.. an OPI cult fave… do you have it? Is it similar??? I LOVE that color… it’s amazing. Metal Jacket is a keeper… seriously going to Bloomies for that one!
