With all the bright and summery nail art and neon polishes on the rise, I decided to do a couple of unconventional manis for those of you that aren't too into neons and brights. And what better polishes to use than the Nail Art Shiny Matte Nail Enamels from Revlon. Seriously, these are made for stamping!

Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte Nail Enamel in "Leather & Lace" & "Tortoise Shell": Review and Swatches
Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte Nail Enamel in "Leather & Lace":
Matte: Simple matte black. The formulation is very good, two coats for opacity and dries super quickly!
Shiny: Silver metallic. Super opaque so it's perfect for stamping! I used it with MoYou London's Suki Plate #06 (review to come soon).

I tried to go for a graphic, maze-like, futuristic design. The metallic polish from Leather & Lace works so well as a stamping polish, it made the whole process super easy. For my ring finger I used a couple of square nail studs from Born Pretty Store to jazz up the look a bit.

Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte Nail Enamel in "Leather & Lace" & "Tortoise Shell": Review and Swatches
Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matte Nail Enamel in "Tortoise Shell":
Matte: Brick red matte. The formulation of this base, unfortunately, was quite sheer and required three coats. As result, it took long a long time to dry. It still worked out ok but the formulation was no where as good as the black for Leather & Lace.
Shiny: Pale metallic gold. Again, this "shiny" polish is just amazing for stamping, it allows the image to transfer almost perfectly, resulting in clean lines and complete designs.

I went for a Japanese floral design using the same MoYou London's Suki Plate #06.
