I recently received a package with 2 nail polishes from the new Mattese Elite Carnaval collection. When I saw the promo pictures, I got uber excited. Anyone who knows me, knows I have a thing from Brazilian culture. & with the drab winter dragging on, these polishes are exactly what I need for a bright pop of color.
WHAT THEY SAY:
Escape the mundane and drab this Winter with the latest nail polish collection from Ricky's NYC's Mattese Elite, inspired by the Carnaval celebrations held in Brazil. These glossy solid shades are a collage of neon -- bright, intense and immediate party-starters. NEW for Winter/Spring 2012!
-Rainha: a regal baby pink
-Fantasias: a mysterious dark grape
-Desfiles de Samba: a parade-worthy light green
-Samba Enredo: a crowd-pleasing rose-pink
-Passistas: an electric purple
-Rei Momo: a high-voltage hot pink
RAINHA: 2 coats
PASSISTAS: 2 coats
This was another amazing collection by Mattese Elite. The polishes were in line with the quality of their other polishes. Only 2 coats were needed to achieve an opaque look. I definitely need some of the other colors.
They recently released another collection Me Amour, just in time for Valentine's Day! I shall have some glittery swatches for you all soon!
