Red Carpet Manicure Postcards From Milan Collection Swatches & Review
Red Carpet Manicure’s (RCM) Postcards From Milan collection has six rich, dark shades that are perfect for fall and winter. Each shade has a lovely, subtle metallic shimmer. I really liked the formula of these polishes and the opacity… most only required two coats for full coverage.
This is In Style, a gorgeous color that reminds me of cranberries. When I compare this color with my other swatches, it’s really very unique. It’s too purple to be considered a red, but a little too red to be considered purple.
Behind the Scenes is my personal favorite color from this collection. It’s a dark green with golden shimmer, but it also seems to have some blue/teal undertones. I’ve been wearing this color for a couple of days now and really don’t want to take it off. I added some gold floral stamps on top of this color, which you can see here.
On the Catwalk is a lovely shimmery grey. It’s very versatile and would match just about any outfit. The color in person is actually slightly darker than it appears in my photos below.
I Own the Runway is a dark burgundy shade. The formula of this polish seemed to be a little different from the rest… maybe a little jelly-like. It has a little shimmer to it, but not as noticeable as in the other colors. This is the only color that I applied three coats with because I felt that it was a little uneven with just two coats. The third coat made it a much darker shade – with just two coats it was noticeably more red.
Front Row Fab is a unique shade of purple with a golden shimmer. I really love this color. I would say it’s more of a blue-ish purple. How would you describe it?
On Trend is a vibrant dark blue with metallic shimmer. It’s really an amazing color in person.
I always receive comments staying that the polishes in my photos look very matte. That is just a result of the way my lightbox filters the light. The polishes are all nice and shiny in natural light. Below is a quick pick that I took of my swatch sticks under a regular light to show you. :)
So what do you think of this collection? I have to say that I Own the Runway is a little dark for my taste, but I think all of the other colors are absolutely amazing. All of the colors are new and unique additions to my collection.
