Urban Decay Apocalyptic Nail Kit

All right, amigas (and amigos, if you're out there!) Today we have Urban Decay's Apocalyptic Nail Kit, which consists of seven mini bottles with awesome names in a cute little zip-up pouch. Did you know Urban Decay Cosmetics started when Sandy Lerner couldn't find the perfect purple nail polish and decided to make her own? Since I'm a huge fan of Urban Decay products, I was super excited to try these nail polishes, and I was very pleased with the results. Swatches below!


First is one of my favorites, White Widow. This one kind of reminds me of a marshmallow. White Widow is a gray, kind of dusty white with a shimmer finish. Unless you wait until each coat is almost dry, it gets pretty streaky, so this isn't the polish to be applying when you're pressed for time.



Metalllic gray lovers will enjoy Gunmetal. Perfect name, in my opinion. It's a dark, dirty gray with a nice shimmer. For some reason none of the pictures I took really showed the shimmer.



Apocalypse is a very deep purple, almost black. Not terribly original.



Grunge has been described as a peacock blue. I don't have any other blues like it; it's got a teal-ish feel to it, but since it's darker and has shimmer it's pretty edgy.




Meltdown. Practically electric, isn't it? Almost neon purple with a pretty shimmer. I swatched it next to China Glaze Let's Groove! to compare.

1 and 3 are Let's Groove! and 2 and 4 are Meltdown.




Big Bang reminds me of the pink velvet leotard I wore to gymnastics when I was five. And if memory serves, I paired it with some blue spandex shorts. Stylin'. This one caught my eye right away and stands out from the set, but it's not the oddball out, you know? It works. It looks like it wouldn't dry perfectly but it does. Love it.




F-Bomb. Awesome name. F-ing awesome, you might say. F-Bomb is a slightly muted red creme. It's not too flashy, but it still makes a statement.


All in all, I think this was a great collection, but I think the colors really speak for themselves, don't you?
