Cuccio Colours: swatches and review – part 1

Have you ever heard of Cuccio Colours? The huge salon brand that grew out of a suitcase on Venice Beach in California in the 1980-ies? They’ve landed in Sweden now and I’ll be showing you a few of their gems. I’m starting off with four summery shades from the core line.

Cuccio Colors - Mystery in Milan, 2 coats with top coat.

Mystery in Milan is a classic clean white. Two coats for opacity, dry time is normal and the greatest part: no chalkiness. Might be the best white I’ve tried in a very long time.

Cuccio Colors - Cheeky in Helsinki, 1 coat, no top coat.

Cheeky in Helsinki is a slightly warm toned lilac, one of those soft yet bright shades I love so much.  This is a one coater! By far my favourite of the four, I own nothing like it and it has made me re-consider purples. For me, this is a must have.

Cuccio Colors - Meet me in Mykonos, 4 coats, no top coat

Meet me in Mykonos is a sheer blue tinted shimmer. Looks beautiful in the bottle but is probably created for layering. It does build up to opacity in four coats though. Here shown without top coat. I actually like it more than I thought I would after the first coat, it gives my hand a delicate but morbidly dead look, which is something I’m actually not totally averse to.

Cuccio Colors - Venetian Valentine. 3 coats.

Venetian Valentine is a semi sheer warm toned pink, builds up to opacity in three coats. Not the most unique shade but I like the soft feeling. This is a good shade for cleaning your palate in between crazier shades.

Cuccio has several lines other than the regular nail polish, amongst them spa-line Cuccio Naturalé and solvent free LED/UV gel line Cuccio Colour Veneer. If you want to get your hands on these products, or rather get them on your hands, you’ll have to pop by a salon – BUT there is one place in Stockholm where they are easily accessible: Åhlens City.

  1. Nej, jag hade aldrig hört om detta märket, men det såg ut att vara snygga lack, du har tagit väldigt snygga fotografier av dem!

  2. Jag kom över ett Cuccio-lack för ett tag sedan, en stark Barbierosa nyans Kyoto Cherry Blossoms. Gillade lacket mycket!

      • Jag fick det av min svärmor, tror hon köpte det på Åhléns. Det är verkligen jättefina färger som du swatchat, härliga pasteller! Ser fram emot del 2.

  3. Aldrig hört talas om heller, men det lila är verkligen vackert. Jag gillar skarpt vinkeln du har tagit fotona i också. Annorlunda och snyggt, sticker verkligen ut från alla hålla-handen-runt-flaskan-foton som figurerar på alla nagelbloggar, inkl min egen. :-)

    • Visst är det lila ljuvligt?
      Vad glad jag blir att du gillar vinkeln, det bara hände av en slump när jag försökte hitta mina gamla vinklar, och så har jag kört på det nu. Jag har aldrig riktigt lyckats med det vanliga hålla-flaskan.greppet, vet inte varför men jag tycker inte det blir bra med min hand. Skönt att alternativet funkar :)
