I just love the names of ManGlaze’s polishes (they actually have the single polish I’ve ever bought just because of the name), and this one is no exception. I mean, how can you resist something called ManGlaze Fuggen Ugly? And it doesn’t exactly hurt that it looks super pretty either (despite the name).
Fuggen Ugly is a matte gunmetal grey with the trademark ManGlaze hidden holographic shimmer. Just feast your eyes on this!
The formula is smooth and easy to apply, and it dries fast, but not too fast. You still have time to smooth everything out without getting chalky bumps and bald spots. I’ve used two coats, and that’s all you need. Because I’ve been working this weekend, I needed to put something low-maintenance on my nails, and this is super easy and quickly applied.
I’ve bought my ManGlaze polishes at their website (and they’re now also selling through Facebook and Amazon), but right now they don’t ship internationally. The customer service is excellent, though, and they promised me on Twitter that they would let me know when they have sorted stuff out for international customers again. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
I normally never do this, but I have to admit I got this polish just for the name. Luckily for me, ManGlaze Fuck Off & Dye is actually a really pretty polish.
Fuck Off & Dye (or Blue [sic], if you want to buy the “nice” version) is a matte pink with the same holographic microshimmer as Matte Is Murder. The shimmer gives it a nice, satiny finish.
This polish is extremely nice to apply, rarely have the words “as buttah” been more appropriate. It’s opaque in 1-2 coats, goes on very smoothly and dries in no time.
ManGlaze polishes can be bought here, at $13.13 + S/H a pop.
Have you ever bought a polish just because of its name?
Matte Is Murder is a black matte polish from the company that makes nailpolish for men, ManGlaze. They have a wide range of matte polishes and topcoats, and even though I’m not a man, I take the chance on wearing this beauty anyway.
The polish is easy to apply, it doesn’t dry too quickly, so you don’t have to rush when you’re polishing. That’s good, because I paint slower than a snail on Valium. (Hey, at least I stay “within the lines” that way!) This isn’t your regular boring black, it also has microshimmer that gives it a nice, satiny look. Here it is matte.
When a glossy topcoat is applied, Matte Is Murder really shines, so to speak. The microshimmer is actually holographic, which doesn’t show up when it’s matte. Here’s a macro shot with topcoat (stamp is BM 212 and China Glaze Millennium).
Have you tried any of ManGlaze’s matte polishes?
Have a nice day, thanks for reading!
