Perfect matte


I love nude & gold together. I wear this combination quite often. It is simple and stunning at the same time.And easy. I put a matte topcoat this time and love the end result. Perfect!!

Today is India’s Independence Day and I wanted to do my nails for the day. But then I was visited by the not so lovely and never welcome throat infection. Bah! Anyway I somehow managed these. Not bad,eh! ūüôā

I think matte looks so much cooler than the glossy one.

Zoya Veruschka

Deepika ¬†reminded me of mattes, which lie abandoned in my boxes. I have been unable to make up my mind about matte polishes. A matte nail polish is different- good different or bad different, I am unsure. To me it is just a little too attention seeking to take it seriously. ūüėõ ¬†That should tell how I feel about crackle polish. I don’t even own one, I am that disinterested.

Coming to this lovely green, it is  Zoya Veruschka  from Velvet matte collection, which is the best description for the texture and feel of this polish. The colour is deep green with shimmer, which saves it from becoming flat and boring.

When I first bought it I dismissed it immediately (why did I buy it! No idea). It was too stark against my skin and not something I am used to. I put a glossy coat over it and fell in love with the  deep, rich, festive green.

So I came back to it but this time did not apply the mandatory glossy coat.And ¬†I have to admit it has grown on me. Though I can bet I will have it shiny and smooth within a day. ¬†ūüôā
