your talons.

last year i picked up the most amazing nail colour i’ve ever seen: zoya charisma. it’s essentially a neon fuschia. i couldn’t wait to put it on. my excitement evolved into pure what the fucks as i applied the matte polish. it looked like electric purple white-out. wtf was this stuff?

each nail was dry in less than 1min. 3mins later, j’adored. the matte look was like a weird funky white-out, in a really good way. and hard to find, til now.

opi is set (i can only assume for fall) to launch a line of their hottest colours in a matte collection: including russian navy (blue), you don’t know jacques (earthy-grey), and cult fave lincoln park after dark (very deep purple).

you’re encouraged to forego top-coat and be okay with the fact that the shit chips within a 2-4.

essie has (per usual) one-upped opi with their upcoming: matte about you. this matte topcoat will turn ANY nail colour matte. fuck opi…i cannot wait to get my hands on this.
