Mo(M)ani–Matte Me Crazy

I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove nail polish. Why? I don’t know. One day soon I’ll divulge my entire nail polish hoarding problem collection.

For the longest I have been wanting a matte top coat. Yet, seeing that the average bottle of Essie’s matte top coat is about $8 I had been going back and forth about whether or not to get it. I had purchased all of Revlon’s limited amount of matte nail polishes and were not particularly fond of the colors. I just wanted a top coat and I didn’t want to pay $8 for it.

Well the heavens opened up and dropped this down…for $1.76 at my local Walmart.


I love the NYC brand. It’s is not only affordable, it dries fast and the brush is great for helping you stay in the lines. I think it is very comparable to some of the more expensive brands on the market.

Here is the before: Color is NYC High Line Green
After Matte Me Crazy:
IMG_1459…and just because I can’t leave well enough alone. No shade on the smudge. Okay?
Overall for the price…Run out and get some. FYI it does show all kinds of streaking so make sure you have good coverage

Nope. I wasn’t compensated for this post. I just love nailpolish.

Do you paint your nails, or experiment with nail art?

  1. I think my daughter may love nail polish just as much as you do! She has bottles everywhere and loves to change out her nail color every other day. Thanks so much for sharing your inexpensive find. She has been asking for a matte finish, but like you I refused to spend $8. Walmart here we come! LOL!! PS. We watched an episode of My Strange Addiction on TLC last week and can you believe there was a woman on there that was addicted to drinking nail polish!

  2. I love polish as well, but I am not patient enough to do it myself! Just this weekend I decided to change my polish instead of waiting to go get then done. I also have a matte polish by OPI–the price was ridiculous!

      1. I need to start painting more often if only to use the plethora of polishes that I have, but trying to allow my nails to dry and multitasking just doesn’t work! Not to mention chasing an almost two-year-old around, smh!

    As you know I have been playing with nail polish these days. I have picked up several in the last few weeks, I mean for 99 cent and 1.99, it is a win/win! I am surprised with the good ompliments that I have been getting. 😉
