It's not a bad matte top coat. It does the job. I still like the NYC Matte Me Crazy a little bit better, but I have only tried the revlon once. I did not let my polish dry fully before applying it and it looked a little lumpy.

I found mini bottles of China Glaze matte top coat last weekend. I can not wait to try it.

Here is a pic of my latest mani. I will be redoing it tomorrow. 1.5 hours after I painted them, 3 nails on each hand messed up. They made it through today, but won't last tomorrow.

This reminds me that I need more glitter in my life.

1) New stuff. Jordana Fairy Dust (the pink in this pic is most accurate), Pure Ice Private Show, China Glaze Ruby Pumps, China Glaze Blue Iguana, and Hard Candy Black Tie Optional (black and white glitter overlay). It looks like these are all winners.
2)Quick and dirty swatches in low light. China Glaze Blue Iguana- This is being discontinued, I got it on clearance at Sally's. 4 coats. It is a blue jelly with micro glitters. The micro glitters shift from blue to purple and I think to green. It takes 4 coats and looks like it will stain. It is very pretty and I think I'm in love. China Glaze Ruby Pumps- for my niece who loves the Wizard of Oz. Pure Ice Private Show- accurately shows how shiny and pretty this is. Jordana Fairy Dust- So pretty, pinker in person then in this pic.
3)Pure Ice Private Show. I don't really like black polish and I don't really like glitter (despite what recent purchases might lead you to believe), but I LOVE this polish. 3 coats polish and 2 coats top coat to get a smooth finish. It is shiny and gorgeous. I highly recommend it so far. I've never worn Pure Ice (other then glitter overlays), so IDK how this brand will wear.

I did a little spring manicure this morning. The base is Zoya Marley (baby lavender) and I made some little flowers (sort of a tulip-heart shape hybrid) with Zoya Dannii (med. purple shimmer) and stems with Piggy Toes Sub-Lime. It's kinda whimsical and cute (read: looks like a little kid did it...LOL).

This manicure looks a lot better with the glitter top coat.

i got the finger nail polish free at sally's. it's an orly color that is really a bright coral cream. the name was blacked out (maybe it's discontinued). what's so great is this is just one coat.

the toes are finger paints comet's collar over one coat of a teal polish by ulta. i love the final result but the green by itself was way too sheer. i would have needed like 10 coats. this got a vibrant green with hints of gold with just one coat over that teal.

opi nail envy on the bottom and orly sec n dry on top.

Nails are a mess. The usual end of winter dryness and peeling. So they are chopped off short and no fancy paint job. Just plain polish - Sinful colors in Ardoise. Every time I put this color on I think I won't like it but end up loving it.

My previous manicure, Pure Ice Private Show, chipped in 1 1/2 days. I'm hoping it will wear better on toes or will work over another black polish.
1) Jordana Fairy Dust. I'm totally in love. I've never worn Jordana before, so fingers crossed that this one will wear well.
2) My pedicure copied from a Pinterest manicure. Wet 'n Wild I Need a Refresh Mint with Wet 'n Wild French White Creme and China Glaze Foie Gras dots. I love this too.

I'm on a polish break, myself. Only usuing Nail Aid Peeling Nail for this week. I cut them down to nothing over the weekend and decided to leave well enough alone. Next week, I am on spring break, and am going to see Dancing with the Stars on Monday, so I'll probably give in and polish again before that. (as if any one would see me on tv, let alone my nails!)

I've only posted very very sporadically over the last year or so. But am popping a little more often now.

I just took off all my gel nails. Gross. I hate my natural nails, but my gels were lumpy and old looking.

Now they're thin and stubby. Sad, sad, ugly hands.

The first two are the Revlon Moon Art that I got. Like Fifi, I found it lumpy because of the glitter. But I loved how it looked. The next two were the next week. I love how the glitter looked in the dark.
