For the past few years, there has been an explosion of different nail polish finishes. Companies keep coming out with new, innovative twist be it sand, matte, leather, magnetic, gel… we have it all. Believe it or not, I haven’t tried a whole lot of them. Of course, I couldn’t avoid the matte craze when it was the cool new thing on the market a few years ago, but being disappointed with the result, the numerous releases to follow just didn’t particularly excite me. Apart from the cracking nail polish. Oh, those were the days!
When I first saw this Latex Matt number from Essence, I thought it was just another matte nail polish with a fancy new name, but I might have been wrong. It does seem matte when you first start applying it, but once it dries, it definitely doesn’t look like a regular matte nail polish. I wouldn’t necessarily say it looks like latex, but it sure looks like my shiny black faux leather jacket from Primark. And guess what? I like it. It doesn’t accentuate my nail ridges and looks kinda chic. I just wish it wouldn’t start chipping after a day.
How are you feeling about the effect nail polishes? Which ones have you tried and loved? Or hated for that matter. I would love to hear your thoughts!
