Sophisticated matte-ness

Recently I received a polish I had long been doubting about. The thing is, one day you'll just have to buy it, or the thought will keep haunting you.
I'm talking about Russian Navy Matte. I know that every polish can easily be mattified with a matte topcoat, and therefore there is no real sense in buying a matte polish. They apply like wallpaint after all. But somehow the Russian Nave matte always looked so posh to me. I really love the look of this almost-black velvety textured beauty!

2 coats, in daylight:
And then I did some cooking, and it started chipping right away. That's another frustrating thing about mattes, they just won't last! So I decided to camouflage it up with a bit of stamping. I picked a Bundle Monster plate and my beloved China Glaze Millenium, and this is how it turned out:

This is taken under artificial light, which makes it look blacker. I absolutely love this! Too bad I'll probably have to take it all off tomorrow!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Oh wow, what happened to your nails lately, they look great! And so does this combo :)
    Slap on some top coat I'd say! Matte does add some to it but it probably looks awesome with tc as well and it might last you a bit longer then ofc.

  2. I don´t really like matte finishes, but I love the image you used! And silver and navy go so well together
