There was this LE of Essie‘s a few years ago, matte colors with beautiful shimmer. I wanted some, but I didn’t buy any. Recently I found some of the polishes lounging around the Essie display. I don’t know if they were re-released or if the shop just happened to find them in the store and put them out again.
This color is called coat couture. I am wearing two coats and no top coat. The polish is dark purple with teal shimmer. The finish is matte. The polish dried extremely fast. It also chipped extremely fast. I got major dents on the day of application. So, while this is very beautiful my original notion of ‘skip them’ might have been right. XD It might just be this particular color. Matte polishes usually don’t last as long as shiny ones and you don’t put a top coat on top either. But even considering all that I have matte polishes that last much better than this one.
In a nuthsell: pretty but you’re not missing anything.
