Anyways, I applied it last night (no base or top coat), and for the first 15+ hours or so, it lasted just like any other polish. Here it is when I woke up:
Looks perfect! I was really excited that it lasted through the night, as I didn't have very high hopes for the matte formula.
So then, I got ready for the day, went to brunch and took a bike ride. Here is what they looked like when I returned:
(please excuse my red hands, I just got done biking in the cold!)
Yep, it chipped like a mofo! Now, relatively speaking, this isn't HORRIBLE. I had way worse chippage from OPI's matte polishes- to the point where it was peeling off in huge hunks. But, for someone like me who prefers a low-maintenance polish (who has time to change her polish every other day?), this isn't the best polish. It's a novelty color, fun to play with, but I wouldn't have very high expectations. Actually, this is a great toe nail polish- it still looks flawless on my toes!
Oh and one more comment: I find the shimmer in this gunmetal gray to be a little pointless. It's supposed to be a matte, but because of the shimmer, it might as well be a normal polish (which would in turn probably last longer).
Anyways, what do you think of the new matte polish trend?
And on another MAC note, are you looking forward to the Liberty of London collection? What products are you drooling over?
