Shades of Fall- Revlon Matte Ruby Ribbon

Last week I won the new Revlon matte nail polish in the colour Ruby ribbon in a Grazia magazine giveaway. I had never used a matte nail polish or even a matte top coat so didn’t really know what to expect, in the bottle it appeared to be a beautiful deep red which always appeals to me in the autumn and winter.
The application of this was easy and hard at the same time; I love Revlon nail polishes as the brush is my favourite however applying matte nail polish is far harder than non matte as mistakes are more noticeable, as you can see in the image. It also comes out slightly darker than what it appears to be in the bottle but I actually prefer this colour. 

This nail polish also wasn’t quite as matte as I thought it would be although it isn’t glossy it does have shimmer making it far more wearable than a totally matte nail polish. I really love this colour and I am sure I will be wearing it all winter!

What matte nails polishes have you tried?

  5. I've used all of the Orly's matte polishes and they have awesome staying power! No chipping or anything. Otherwise I just use Essie's matte about you on any polishes.
