Today I bring you one of my latest L.A. Girl acquisitions. This is from the matte collection and boy, did I step out of my comfort with this one!
Two coats, no base, limited sun
I wanted to get something really bright and though I love orange, I opted for Matte Coral. The bottle showed more of an orange-y cast but it's definitely a pink-y coral. I am not disappointed in this because it is so sunny and cheery.
This was easy to work with and applied smoothly. It does dry quickly as mattes are wont to. However, it dries slower than Zoya and Orly mattes. I had to be very careful until it dried but I did manage to ding the index.
I found this at my local Fred Meyer store for $2.99 but I do know that these are available at Cherry Culture for $4.00. They have a nice selection of colors in this line and I definitely plan on buying some more!
I did, of course, play around with layering as well as making this pretty color shine with top coat!
China Glaze Five Gold Rings on index
Nina Ultra Pro Molten Opal on middle
Orly Love Each Other on ring
Out The Door top coat on pinkie
I loved all of the effects the layering gave. Molten Opal was amazing but I was most impressed with the Orly over it. The purple/blue sparkles just jumped right off the nail!
Thank you for looking! I'm almost at the end of my week. I'm planning on making a beautiful batch of pho for me and Matt to enjoy on Xmas Eve. Then it's all about the cuddle time on the couch!
What plans do you have?
Have a lovely day, all!
