Its the weekend! Relax have fun and catch up on some sleep.
Are you aware of Ricky's NYC. Ricky's is "An edgy, ultra-hip "beauty shop" specializing in unique fashion accessories, cosmetics, and beauty supplies, Ricky's NYC has been a part of New York's urban chic culture for nearly two decades. From style-conscious teenagers and their suburbanite moms to Hollywood celebrities and their professional stylists, Ricky's NYC plays host to a diverse, cult-like following of clientele."
Ricky's offers a variety of different brands all unique and most unknown to me. Mattese Elite is definitely a brand that Ricky's carries that I have never tried. Mattese Elite offers a wide range of cosmetics, including nail polish. I was drawn to this brand because of the unique shades it comes out with!
I got to try one shade called "Soft and Wet." What a name! Its part of Mattese's Orgasmic collection. On the webpage it is described as a soft satin pink tingling sensation.
Soft and Wet is a beautiful pink shimmer with pink and blue flecks in it. Its a mix between magenta and hot pink. Its so vibrant and pretty I just love it.
Application was amazing. Only two coats to get this manicure opaque. The polish applied like a jelly which was very surprising for a shimmer like this. The handle was easy to use and the brush applied nicely.
I really liked the look of this nail polish. The shape is so easy to store and .5 fl oz is a good size. The shape reminds me of Milani but the cap/brush is similar to nyc.
So do you want to see how this looks on me? It looks FABULOUS!
Mattese Elite's Soft and Wet is such a pretty shimmer. The blue flecks makes it unique and the shine and formula mimick that of a designer higher end polish. The quality of this polish is better for me than OPI or China Glaze.
Soft and Wet retails for $5.99. I think its a fair and good price for this polish. I would rather spend for two of these than some more expensive lacquers because I know that the quality and formula is superb!
This polish has made me want to try all of Mattese Elite's polishes! This polish is seriously a stunner and I just love staring at my nails to see it!
