Mattese Elite Russian Mafia
Today is a much better day in terms of weather. The past few weeks have been a flurry of snowstorms and blizzards. The thing I hate the most about bad weather like that is that I can’t drive (well I don’t rather than can’t) because of all the snow and ice. The wind doesn’t help either. Being that I am located in a flat state, wind is pretty much a staple of everyday life here. The shade I have on my nails today cheered me up quite a bit too. I find the name catchy as well, which made me love this shade even more. Here is Mattese Elite’s Russian Mafia.
This spectacular purple shade packs a ton of purple or pink and blue glass fleck shimmer. The glass flecks are still not as packed as the ones from other nail polish brands, but as I’ve mentioned it before, I like it this way. I think too much glass fleck shimmer in this shade would take away from the beauty of the nail color itself. Formula is rich and smooth. Drying time is exceptional and opacity? Drumroll please! This is a one coater! Wow! I could not believe it! I tend to apply several thinner coats and this only needed one relatively thin coat. I’m very impressed.
See the beautiful glass flecks? Glass fleck shades are one of my favorites.
You can score this beauty directly on their webpage or if you live in the wonderful state of New York, you can stop by at any Ricky’s NYC store locations (see here) and see this and other shades for yourself before you buy. Mattese Elite shades retails for $5.99 each before tax.
