Mish Mash Challenge Week 7: Least expensive polish - Golden Rose Matte Velvet #105


Happy hump day! For once I'm getting my post up on Wednesday :D This week we are using our least expensive polish/polishes. I chose Golden Rose Matte Velvet #105. This one was also in my untrieds so it was an easy choice. I found this from a discount bin at a local store and it cost me 1 euro. I believe I have never bought a polish cheaper than one euro :)

This is two coats of Matte Velvet 105 alone, no undies, no top coat.





Application was great and two coats is enough for an opaque result. This dries to a semi matte, shimmery finish. Very beautiful color :)  I have no complaints.

Now I'm off to check out what kind of awesome findings the other ladies have to show for this cheap polish week :D

Jindie Nails - sTEALth



Jindie Nails recently released Velvet Matte Duo polishes and here's first of the two, sTEALth. Jen describes this polish as: "Matte, velvet finish deep teal crelly with blue, purple and green iridescent and color shifting glitters". I LOVE this color! It is amazing! There's depth matte polishes don't usually have and when you add the top coat this is jaw dropping gorgeous! It's like having two polishes in one, matte and super glossy. Can't beat that!

This is three coats of sTEALth, first alone as matte polish and last two photos with top coat.

sTEALth has a very good formula and application was flawless. For shorter nails two coats would be enough but my longer nails needed three for opaque result. This stunning beauty is limited edition so get yours while you can!!

Jindie Nails polishes are available to US and Canada customers at www.jindienails.com. International customers click here to find a distributor that works the best for you. Jindie Nails can also be found from FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Golden Rose Matte Velvet - 103

Löysin Seppälän alekorista Golden Rose merkkisiä kynsilakkoja 50 sentin kappalehintaan ja nappasin mukaani sinisen Velvet Matte lakan sävyssä 103. Ajattelin, että tuohon  hintaan en tee konkurssia vaikka lakka olisi ihan surkea. 9-vuotias sisarentyttäreni ottaa myös ilolla vastaan kaikki lakat joita hänelle annan, joten sitä ei tarvitse edes pois heittää jos en haluaisi omaan kokoelmaani jättää.

Tämä lakka kuitenkin yllätti minut positiivisesti. Se levittyi hyvin, peitti jo yhdellä kerroksella (laitoin kuitenkin kaksi) ja kuivui nopeasti. Sävykin on kaunis. Pinta ilman top coatia kuivui kauniin puolimattaiseksi. Minulla ei ole liikaa sinisiä lakkoja, joten tämä ei lähtenyt uuteen kotiin vaan pääsi lipaston halpislakkalaatikkoon muiden  kaveriksi.


Nice velvet-y semi-matte finish without a top coat

Top coat just ads a bit of shine to it


This polish is packed with beautiful light blue shimmer

I found these Golden Rose polishes from a discount basket at a local store for 50 cents a bottle and decided to buy the blue shade number 103. I figured that for 50 cents it wouldn't be such a great financial loss if it ended up being something awful. Also my 9 yr old niece gladly takes all the nail polish bottles I give her so I wouldn't have to throw it in the trash either.

This polish ended up surprising me positively though. It applied well and was opaque with just one coat (I still used two coats). Dry time was very quick and I really like the color too. Without a top coat this dried to a nice velvet-y semi matte finish. I don't have too many blue polishes so this one got to move into my polish drawer and make friends with other cheap polish bottles ;)

Color Club Linen & Silk gone Matte About You

Eilisen postauksen ihana nude Linen & Silk vielä uudestaan, mutta tällä kertaa Essien Matte About You matta lakalla kuorrutettuna. Ihanan samettinen lopputulos!

Yesterday's Color Club Linen & Silk again but this time with Essie Matte About You on top. Beautiful, velvet-y look!

Borghese Espresso Brown with Essie Matte About You

Ja pakkohan se oli sitten tämäkin lakkaus vielä matata ihan vaan uteliaisuuttaan. Tällä kertaa pidän enemmän tämän postauksen kiiltävästä versiosta vaikka on tuo mattakin ihan kiva.

And I just had to matte this mani too just because I can. This time I prefer the glossy version seen in this post.

OPI Big Apple Red with Essie Matte About You

Postisetä toi vihdoin viime viikolla eBaysta tilaamani Essien Matte About You matta topcoatin. Pakkohan sitä oli sitten heti testata ja toimihan se hyvin. Muutti pinnan mataksi ihan silmissä ja kuivui todella nopeasti. Hauska efekti tuon kirkkaanpunaisen lakan päällä. Tuolla mattalakalla saatkin helposti mistä tahansa kynsilakastasi mattapintaisen ja se tuo mukavasti vaihtelua eri lakkauksiin. Olen tähän ostokseeni erittäin tyytyväinen :)

Kuvassa ensin alla edellisen postauksen lakkaus eli OPI NNS x1, Big Apple Red x3 ja Poshen pikakuivattaja. Kaiken tuon päälle seuraavana päivänä lisätty yksi kerros Essien matta päällyslakkaa.

Mailman finally delivered my Essie Matte About You topcoat last week and I just had to test it on my OPI Big Apple Red mani. This changes your mani into matte finish in front of your eyes and dries really fast. I really like the matte finish on this bright red mani. Matte About You turns any one of your manis into matte and that brings a welcome change to the regular look. I'm more than happy with this product :)

In this mani I first had the day before's OPI NNS x1, Big Apple Red x3 and Poshe on top. Then the following day I applied one coat of Matte About You on top of all that.
