Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great weekend. I was away Friday and Saturday so I am sorry for the lack of new posts. I will be posting the winners for the last giveaways today as well :)
I am so glad to be posting again about 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 a brand that only Ricky's. I have reviewed a polish from this brand before here. Mattese Elite offers a wide range of cosmetics, including nail polish. Mattese Elite comes out with some awesome shades and recently made a whole collection of nail polish that was inspired by Ballerinas!
The Mattese Elite 2011 collection "Ballet Colors of ME" is made up of some awesome cremes that are innocent and chic while being very understated. If you are the kind of girl who likes to wear fashionable colors on your toes and nails but doesnt like showing off- this is the collection for you!
I have in my possession six of the shades from this collection and will be starting off with one of my personal favorites; Attitude. This collection was so on trend- or should I say point -after Black Swan and I think it was so smart for Mattese Elite to come out with this line.
Attitude is a very subtle blue that I think is so fashion forward and cool. The formula is thin. It takes three coats but I didnt think it was a big problem. This is the kind of cool color that I think you can almost wear to work.
I think this is such a soft blue and it is the kind of polish that you would think is easy to find even though it is not. I just love it and had nothing like this in my huge collection so I am quite pleased with Attitude.
To be quite honest the actual nail color has a more grey tone in real life. Its really nice and I would reccomend this color anyday! This shade retails for $5.99 a price I think is more than fair. You can buy Attitude on Rickys website.
