Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous is one of the new glittery colours from the Swiss collection for Fall/Winter 2010. Glitter has become quite fashionable recently & considering the enormous attention received by Mad As A Hatter (from Alice In Wonderland collection), it's not surprising to see a couple of glittery finishes in this collection.This colour, as well as Glitzerland, apparently are not the typical glitter/metallic/shimmer formulations & this type of finish/texture is new to OPI. It's sort of a foil/glitter shimmer, which gives it a metallic sheen/effect. Lucerne-tainly is a deep, rich steel grey with fine flecks of a silvery foil-like glitter. When this hits the light, it's gorgeous - the reflect is amazing & you get this appearance of an all-over foil, but then you look closer and you can see the little flecks. It's quite nice to look at.I hesistated purchasing this colour initially, as I thought it might be a dupe of Brand New Skates (which I already have - see comparison bottle pic above). Although they are a similar tone of grey, Brand New Skates is a tad darker and has gold flecks of glitter - and not as many flecks as Lucerne-tainly. So I find that the flecks are more prominant & you get a greater reflect and foiled effect with Lucerne-tainly. Also, I have found with the Swiss collection that the colours look so much better when applied on the nails. This colour looked a bit lacklustre in the bottle, but when applied, it looked amazing.In terms of formula - I got good, even and opaque coverage with 2 coats. The formula of this is a bit better than recent collections, which have been a bit watery. And also the staying power of this was great - the glittery particles gripped well on the nail, but weren't difficult to remove with polish remover and then washing my hands well with soap and water.Overall, this a great, unique colour - has a great reflect to it and I am really enjoying wearing it now in the final few weeks of the Australian winter. Looks awesome with my silver jewellery as well!

A great sparkly foil-like charcoal that reminds me of lead in a pencil tip. Perfect for fall. A real head turner. Highly recommend. It's the best of the entire OPI Swiss collection.

Gorgeous color. First coat is quite sheer, but second coat was enough for me. I'll bet a third would REALLY increase the depth of the color. Beautiful pewter shade, flashes a bit blue in certain indoor light. Reminded me ever so slightly of Brand New Skates, although this has glitter more than frost, but not a heavy glitter a la MaaH. I adore this shade.

I'm loving this colour a lot! I saw it in a beauty supply shop and just snatched it off the shelf and bought it. At first I thought it was going to be more silvery, but it's really not more like a shimmery pewter/"pencil lead" shade. You definitely need to layer on 3-4 coats to truly appreciate this gorgeos colour, I think of it as very sophisticated and I would wear it at any time of the year, but around Christmas time this colour will truly stand out. I usually go for bargain deals on nail polish so this was a little bit pricey for me (around $15) but I'm loving this sparkly metallic grey and would buy it again in a heartbeat!

I thought this color was so unique and bought it right away. I'm a big fan of OPI's polishes and love how smoothly they apply. This polish is pewter with silver and teal micro-glitter. The teal really comes through in the sunlight. I did an OPI base coat, two coats of polish and Seche Vite to finish it off and I have a few big chips only two days in. Usually, I can go four days without chipping doing this same process, so this one isn't lasting as long. I'm going to try it with three coats next time and see if that makes a difference. It's really lovely and different, so I would repurchase, even with the chipping issue.EDIT: Three layers of this polish with base and top coat is the way to go. With just two coats, my manicure was wrecked by the third day. Now I'm on day four and only one small chip.

Love this color! I tried it a few weeks ago, it didn't apply well, I thought it would gather dust in the drawer. I couldn't sleep last night, had taken off "Yodel Me on My Cell" earlier that day, so I thought I'd give it another go. I gave it adequate drying time between coats and that did the trick, don't rush it. Two coats is fairly opaque, I think three is perfect, if you have time.It's a shiny, irridescent pewter. It's not "girlish," the silver gray makes it mature enough for many ages to wear, and the sparkle is rather understated, given all the little shiny bits in it. It comes across and shiny and luminous, not like glitter polish. With a clear topcoat, it's perfect! It sounds silly, but it reminds me of the popular sparkly car paint in the 70's, the metallic paint that was so shiny and pretty, and only up close did you see the individual glitter specks.I have "Yodel Me on My Cell," the blue in the swiss collection, on my toes, and it's ok, not great. However, with a coat of Lucerne-tainly over it (did I mention I had insomnia last night and had to entertain myself for 5 hours before I fell asleep?) it is gorgeous! I thought "Yodel" was a bland but pretty blue-green, but with the "Lucerene-tainly" over it, the color becomes a steely blue gray at some angles, deep blue at others. It's gorgeous! I'd get "Lucerne-tainly" again, full bottle size (I have the mini) because it's great by itself or a sheer coat over other colors. Awesome color!Ooooh no....I have to downgrade this to 4 stars, I still love the color, but it's coming off my nails in big sheets and chips, despite 3 coats AND a topcoat. Bummer, it didn't even make it two days. I think this color is going to be more for use over other colors, not by itself, which is a shame because it's such a hot color.

Being a sucker for all things Swiss, when i heard that OPI were coming out with a Swiss collection I knew I was going to make at least one purchase. I usually only wear dark reds or purple colours but ive been on the hunt for a nice gunmetal colour and this certainly doesnt disapoint, it was the only one that stood out to me from the whole collection! Two coats gives the most amazing charcoal, silvery foil finish that looks amazing when it catches the light! It leaves a very smooth finish despite being shimmery. I am awaiting delivery of Chanel Le Vernis in Steel which looks darker and less shimmery than this. I cant wait to my next night out to wear this, I keep admiring my nails now even as I type! They say that Lucerne is the most beautiful city in Switzerland and this certainly is a beautifuly colour. Would I repurchase this?? HELL YES!

This is a GREAT polish. I really love it. I applied it today and it went o like a dream. The color is really interesting. It definitely has some silver sparkle/glitter but the undertone of the polish is like a blackened teal (blue/green) pewter color. 2 coats was enough for an opaque finish. It's definitely glitzy and glam great for a night out! I used this polish over my Sally Hansen Diamond Strength base coat and top coat finished off with Seche Vite. I would highly recommend this polish if you love it in the bottle. :)

I am on a mega polish kick lately...I think I am SO ready for fall to come visit us here in sunny Florida, that changing up my polish seems to be the only connection to fall...It's still in the 90's by me, lol......The Swiss collection has caught my eye again and again at various stores and today I had to bite the bullet at Ulta when I saw the bye2 get 1 free deal...This color is simply AWESOME ladies!!!!!!!!!! It's different, it's not your typical silver, mixed with glitter/shimmer like every other line I have been looking at. I agree with the reviewer that compared this shade to pencil lead, as I think that's quite accurate. Smokey charcoal may be a another way I'd describe it. I initially dabbed jitterbug by China glaze on a piece of paper, then put this beside it and I knew I had to have this...IMO, this shade is deeper and more interesting. As I mentioned earlier, I have seen many variations of silver, so I wanted soemthing along those lines but a little unique and richer, this won me over hands down!
