Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 8!

This nail polish definitely made my Must-Have Christmas list this year, because I absolutely LOVE it! It’s fun, and new and the girl/woman in your life would love to try it, just as I did! It’s inexpensive, and would make the perfect stocking stuffer. Another cute idea would be to tie a nail polish on the outside of a present with some ribbon! What girl wouldn’t love that!?

I was sent this new nail polish to try a while ago, and to be honest I wasn’t in a hurry to try it. It’s Matte, and to me – that seems really strange in a nail polish!

I was sitting there at my desk yesterday staring at the nail polish, and decided to give it a go. Right off the bat I noticed two things. First of all, it’s AMAZING going on. You don’t need any base coat – or top coat, and one layer of polish is all it takes. It goes on wonderfully. Second thing I noticed is that it dries almost immediately. I looked down, and the wet polish had dried into a beautiful red matte color.

The color I’m wearing is Posh, and it’s in the MatteVelvet 2009 line. There are two other awesome colors in this line – check them out here!

I love this stuff! If you are looking for something new, I highly recommend this! I had several people via twitter (are you not following us yet? Follow us at @makeherup) ask me to send pictures of what my nails looked like. The whole matte look is hard to capture in a picture, but I tried!! I don’t have glorious nails, but you get the idea.

MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry nail surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear. For best results make sure to always prepare the nail with Zoya Remove+ (3-in-1 nail polish removed, nail plate cleaner and new color prep.) prior to applying color.

Plum Passion
If you have darker skin with olive tones, purple is the way to go. A polish with a little shimmer will enhance the skin’s naturally warm tones, says Weiss-Fischmann.

Borghese Nail Lacquer

I was just sent some Borghese nail polish to try, and while I am familiar with their skincare products I had yet to try the nail care line. Well first thing I noticed was the difference in the dual tip brush, it seems to hold the perfect amount of polish. Whenever I do my nails I seem to have too much on the brush even if I try to dab some off.  

On top of a great brush the colors are brilliant and look great.  My two favorite colors so far are Notte Black and Chianti Wine. If you are looking for a great new nail polish,  give  Borghese a try.
