Revlon - Emerald City - Matte - Nail polish
I received this as a birthday gift back in January since I am a fan of the colour green - especially dark greens which can be hard to find in nail polish.
Despite owning a ridiculous amount of nail polishes I also do not have any that have a matte finish and I wish I had a good verdict on it.
Apologies for the bad quality of photo's they looked better on my camera. Below is the nail polish without any top coat. Adding a top coat takes away the matte finish but sadly the staying power of a matte nail polish is really bad. I painted my nails before bed last night and by this afternoon I had to touch them up. I love the matte look but if you want the polish to last more than a night then it is not really a good option.
Here is the polish with a Nails Inc Kensington Cavier Topcoat. As you can see the topcoat takes away the matte finish but none the less the polish is still a gorgeous colour.
Does anyone else have experience with matte nail polishes and tips on how to get them to not chip as much?
