NOTD: OPI La Paz-Itively Hot Matte
When the matte polish trend started appearing, I didn’t like it at all. The matte finish reminds me of chalkboards, and nails and chalkboards DON’T MIX! Ewww eww eww!
But then I discovered that the mattes came in other colors than white, black, grey and green. Pink, blue and purple mattes? I’m in!
I totally fell in love with this color, La Paz-Itively Hot Matte. It reminds me of pink velvet, it’s so sophisticated and nice. The color is hot fuchsia with a blue flash. This is one of those colors that makes me keep looking at my nails all day.
It’s been said that application of mattes is hard, but I found it a lot easier than I thought. If you apply the polish reasonably fast and with a steady hand, it’s not that hard. But be aware that every brushstroke will show, and the polish dries really fast. I used three coats for this, over Essie Millionails. (Yes, I know that you’re not supposed to use base- or topcoat with these, but I cringe at the thought of putting polish on my bare nails.)
I only have outdoors pics today, because frankly, the indoors pics sucked. :P
