Urban Decay XX Vintage Nail Colors (Part 2)

Bruise

Urban Decay Bruise XX Vintage Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a deep, purplish brown base with green-to-teal pearl that shifts. The shimmer was rather fine, and I did have some trouble smoothing out the pearl and polish so that it looked like an even, shimmery finish–looked a little more like threads of shimmer, unfortunately! The consistency was thicker and did not self-level as it dried down. It was fully opaque after two coats, and it lasted for seven days on me with minor tip wear.

Roach

Urban Decay Roach XX Vintage Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a deep, reddish brown with warm undertones and shimmer that shifted from dirty, olive gold to warm brown. The consistency was smooth, not too thick or too thin, and it applied beautifully to the nails with rich, opaque color in two coats, though one was almost opaque. I typically get a week of wear out of the brand’s formula.

Plague

Urban Decay Plague XX Vintage Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a rich, blackened purple with cool, violet sparkle and fine pearl. It had opaque color coverage with two coats (almost opaque in one). The consistency was thin without being watery, so it didn’t pool along the edges of my nails nor did it sheer out or appear uneven on the nail. It dried down to a modewrate shine, but I think a top coat is necessary for true glossiness. I wore this one and only had minor tip wear after seven days.

Radium

Urban Decay Radium XX Vintage Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and lighter blue pearl. It had more of a pearly finish–not quite metallic and not frosted or sparkly, as the particle size was rather fine. The texture was thicker, and it was hard to manage the amount of product on the nail; one coat was really sufficient with this one unless you were very, very careful and wiped away excess to get a thinner initial coat. Urban Decay’s nail polish lasts around a week with minor tip wear for me.

Frostbite

Urban Decay Frostbite XX Vintage Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a deep, blackened navy blue with fine bits of lighter blue pearl. It had intense color coverage with a smooth consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it covered the nail evenly and didn’t require any extra work to maneuver it across the nail. I typically get a week of wear with Urban Decay’s formula with minor tip wear.

UV-B

Urban Decay UV-B XX Vintage Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark cobalt blue with cool, purplish undertones and fine pearl. It had opaque pigmentation after two coats of polish, though the texture was more watery than ideal. It resulted in slightly streakier shimmer, as you could see where the brush wobbled and wiggled down my nail. It seemed to self-level a fair amount, but it wasn’t completely gone after drying down. This shade lasted for seven days with minor tip wear on me.
