I was so torn on these. At first I thought, man, I'm matte-d out, I do not want to even look at another matte! But then I was like... well... I might as well take a look, I like the names... So I went to Sally, put them in my basket, brought them to the checkout and went eeeehhhh.... These are kinda boring. And I put them back! But then my curiosity got the better of me and I eventually ordered them from 8ty8 because they were way cheaper, and man, WHY DIDN'T I JUST BUY THESE THE FIRST TIME?! THEY'RE AWESOME!! ARGH!
Anyway. Yeah. I really, really misjudged these. Take a look.
Glam Rock. This is kind of a copper metallic-flake matte. See?? Isn't it cool? It's a lot like the OPI Suedes, but this is all metallic. Metallic base, metallic shimmer. Very interesting speckled effect.
Iron Butterfly. In-a-gadda-da-vida honey, don't you know that I love you... in a gadda da vida baby.... don't you know that I'll always be true.... Oh won't you come with me and take my hand.... Oh won't you... what? You honestly expected me to actually review a polish with a name like this? *continues rocking out*
Solid Gold. Very nice gold, a little orangey, maybe a hint of greenish-brown to it. I think my skin tone makes it pull more brownish. Nice metal flake action going on here. I'm diggin' it.
And, of course, with topcoat because DAMN:
Iron Butterfly. *organ solo*
The formula on these was excellent. Easy to work with, thick but not impossible, good opacity. They do dry quickly but not immediately so you have a little time to work. Really nice *fully* matte effect, not wishy-washy half-matte rubbery look that I hate. These are velvety.
So, yeah. They're kinda awesome. I am kicking myself for writing them off because I ended up liking these a LOT. Especially with topcoat.
