Madly matte (just like other matte top coats) gives your polish a matte finish. While I'm not a fan of matte nail polishes I decided to mattify my manicure and I love it! It looks like a metallic finish. So o will be getting a back up bottle. If you don't want to pay the price of China glaze's matte magic this is a good alternative for only $1 ツ

L to R; pop a bottle, epic winning, rock star from Mars, crystal heart and kiss my Berry
L to R; (from the new York graffiti collection)
Silver spray paint, tag me pink, 4am dance party, midnight at times square and black shatter which is a crackle polish.
2 pure ice polishes; China girl and cheatin' forever 21 red multi-glitter icing chrome navy blue and Nina ultra pro purple x-ing
2 rimmel polishes; hard metal and pink zinfandel 3 Sally Hansen salon manicure polishes; purple pulse, angel wings and black platinum.
I was putting away some recently purchased nail polish (seems like I'm doing that every day ha!) And I noticed that wet-n-wild gray's anatomy and my newly purchased sinful colors let me go looks almost the same.
As I held the bottles up there was some slight difference. Let me go has more of a pinkish-gray duochrome while gray's anatomy is more of a purplish-gray duochrome. However they are both the same price at $2 at Walgreens. Gray's anatomy may be easier to find as wet-n-wild polishes are sold almost everywhere. I've only seen sinful colors at Walgreens. If you can't find one the other will work just fine. ツ

I love kleancolors mermaid it is a pretty duochrome. Blue with green and silver. After a day of wearing it alone I added a coat of kleancolors silver star a pretty chunky holo-glitter the stars were pure hell to get out of the bottle but still very pretty ツ

I get a lot of questions on how I grow my nails and keep them healthy and keep my natural color on the nail bed and my tips white. You would think with so much frequent Polish changes I would expirence breaks and staining. I rarely experience breaks unless its a freak accident or something. My nails seem to be pretty strong naturally. I use to wear them very long maybe 10mm of free nail. Now that my job requires typing its about 4mm now. What I do to take care of my nails is very simple. I do not cut them if I don't have to. I file them down instead. Cutting can cause splits or cracks in the nail bed, which can't stunt the growth. I use St Ives apricot scrub to scrub dead skin off my hands and around my nails. Yes I know its facial scrub but it has pumice in it and we use pumice stones in manis and pedis anyway so it seems to work. I also soak my hands once a week and push my cuticles back GENTLY!!! I apply cuticle oil and moisturizing lotion to my hands. Sometimes in between manis I will use Avon's length and strength complex. As far as how white my tips are that's just diet! Lots of veggies and proteins. And vitamins. Happy manis! ツ

As most nail Polish fanatics I have so many bottles of nail Polish till they all start to look alike. My good friend gave me a bottle of Sally Hansen's gem crush in Razzle Dazzler and I love it! Super sparkly glitter Polish! I plan on getting every color! Fast forward a few weeks later and I bought a ton of wet-n-wild polishes and I picked up what I believe is called sparkling (if not I will include the correct name in the comments) and when I got home and put them away I noticed how the colors are almost exact! S.H. does have a little more of a silver shimmer but if you're not willing to pay $5-$7 for Sally Hansen the wet-n-wild Polish works just as good and its only $1 I may wear both and do a comparison on how each polish wears ツ
