Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend: Bogeyman

Another matte mani today! Here’s Bogeyman, a collab shade by Anna Gorelova and Dance Legend:dance legend - bogeyman 2What an a-w-e-s-o-m-e polish! Flakies everywhere in a dark brown base. Formula wise I thought this would be streaky, but not at all! This is two coats, no top coat.dance legend - bogeyman 1This polish came with its own adjustable cabochon ring which shows the flakies even better:dance legend - bogeyman 3Lovely, isn’t it?

Bogeyman is available at Hypnotic Polish. They ship worldwide 🙂

ManGlaze: Mayonaisse + Hot Mess

In the post where I showed you Fuck Off & Dye and Matte is Murder by ManGlaze I told you that I immediately fell in love with not only their matte polishes but also their awesome labels and polish names. So here I am again with two other ManGlaze’s!manglaze - mayonnaise - hot mess1For this mani I used three coats of Mayonaisse as my base color. This is a matte white polish. It’s a little harder to work with than the others that I’ve tried. White polishes are often a struggle, glossy or matte so I’m fine with that. You need to work fast to avoid streaking and give the layers a bit more time to dry before adding the next one. Then I used a thin nail art brush (striper) and Hot Mess to create a waterfall effect. I believe this one was made to be paired with Mayonaisse but I’m not sure about that. Silver sparkles everywhere. Awesome! manglaze - mayonnaise - hot messWhat do you think of matte white polishes? And how about this combo?

Thanks Wenche for the fast shipping and lovely packaging! manglaze - fuck off & dye - matte is murder1This is Matte Is Murder (matte black) and Fuck Off & Dye (matte pink).

Rimmel London – Velvet Matte Collection

When you’d like to create a cool effect on your nails that’s not complicated to make and above all is not time consuming you should give the so called saran wrap technique a try. Easy peasy! Really!rimmel london - velvet matte1For this mani I used four polishes from the Matte Velvet Collection by Rimmel London: Velvet Touch (grey), Midnight Kiss (blue), Sumptious Red (red/purple) and Purple Opulence (purple). I applied two coats of Midnight Kiss on the nails of my index- and middle finger and two coats of Velvet Touch on the nails of my ring finger and pinky. Then I used the three opposite colors and pieces of saran wrap to create the design.
That’s it 😀rimmel london - velvet matte

El Corazon: 162 – Matte and Shine Effect

More flakies? Yes! For this mani I used Fireworks Galaxy on my middle- and ring finger (sponged) and number 162 from the Matte and Shine Effect Collection by El Corazon on my index nail and pinky. el corazon matte - fireworksThis matte polish by El Corazon is fabulous. The formula is a breeze to work with and I just love the matte, satin like finish. It has lots and lots of blue particles… so pretty!

Fireworks Galaxy is available at my shop (along with the other flakie polishes from the Galaxy Collection).

El Corazon: 121 – Matte Effect

Happy Friday!

It’s quite difficult to find a good matte nail polish. I’ve tried some good ones but I’ve also discovered that most matte polishes tend to leave brush strokes. This is 121 by El Corazon. After one coat I knew it needed a second one for full coverage. I thought that it’ll definitely get streaky, but no: not at all. Completely smooth in 2 coats! Oh and on a side note… look at that bottle: matte! Such a nice touch 😀el corazon 121 1For my accent nail I used a sponge and Fireworks Galaxy (available at my shop) to add a bit of color and topped it with one coat of matte top coat.el corazon 121El Corazon polishes are available at their website and at Hypnotic Polish.

Have a great weekend! :*

Catrice – Liquid Metal (Matt)

I’m so excited to see all the new collections that are going around right now 🙂 Catrice added lots of new polishes to their regular line but they also added 16 (!) more polishes to their Luxury Lacquer line (not to talk about their new collection for Fall). 8 of those are part of the Liquid Metal line. There are 4 matte polishes and 4 shiny ones. Today I like to show you the 4 matte polishes.
