Urban Decay Radium is a very cool-toned, dark blue with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition nail lacquer that retails for $15.00 and contains 0.33 oz.
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.
We hear rabid fans resort to all kinds of extreme measures in the name of acquiring a long-ago-discontinued favorite shade of our nail polish. (Rumor has it some colors have fetched obscene sums upwards of $60 on eBay!) Enough with the insanity–UD polish is back and better than ever. Introducing Nail Color from Urban Decay. Ultra sophisticated and EXTREMELY limited edition, these gorgeous, decadent (and very UD) colors feature complex shade work, super-rich pigments and dynamic micro-sparkle. Each fall and spring, Wende and our product development team will handpick two new shades that reflect their take on the season. Our first launch features two iconic UD colors any self-respecting beauty junkie will want in their collection. But get them soon–because once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
