A couple months back I was sent 4 nail polishes from a company called Man Glaze. While I’m not crazy about the name I do love the polishes. My favorites being Fuggen Ugly (a matte silvery color with a sublte glimmer) and Matte is Murder (a matte black). The other polishes are Hot Mess (a matte clear polish with glitter) and Matte-Astrophe (a matte clear). The coolest thing about Matte-Astrophe is that it can give you the matte look on any other nail polish you own.
I’ve been using these polishes pretty consistently over the past few months. They seem to be my goto when I want something edgy or when I have 10 minutes to get out the door. They dry so quickly. It’s like you can pretty much paint and go. The above photo is a from a shoot that I styled awhile back and I had the polishes with me so I gave the two models a quick manicure using Fuggen Ugly & Hot Mess. I don’t have a good nail shot of Julie with Hot Mess unfortunately but it was great. The girls had never used a matte nail color before and were very impressed with the results and how different it looked.
The polishes retail $6.66 – $13.33 each fyi and are available here. Just checked out the site and they have a matte white available now. I adore white nail polish. That’s a must have now.
Here’s a quick video I took with my iPhone so you can see application. It was like 2 minutes long at first but I cut out my rambling/me fixing my polish to be perfect. I’m certainly not a manicurist. Enjoy for the application/swatch value. Ignore everything else lol. My speaking voice is awful.
