Barry M - Cafe Velvet

 



This is okay to use, tricky to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). Careful application is required as it shrinks and splits like a crackle polish!!! You can see a few of these lines on the middle finger. It does happen a lot with matte polishes. Try to reduce the strokes on application. It looks okay and I do like the finish, just don't think the colour suits me. Lasted well.

  2. I agree with Stevendon's comment about the color of this nail polish similar to tulips.

    The appearance of the nails looks fresher and smoother.

  5. I think I would rather just use a matte top coat then have to deal with the issues matte polishes bring. This is a gorgeous shade and polish but the shrinking and extra work would make it a no for me.

    1. Yeah good point, some can be a total nightmare. This one was 50 50, and managed to get half decent photos for posting. I got the other 5 in the set to try, hoping for more success lol! :-D

  12. The finish is lovely when you can get it to work. I have had that cracking happen with matte topcoats once in a while, too. Frustrating.
