Back to Black ... *NOTD*

Sunday, 8 May 2011

I recently placed my first e.l.f order and amongst other treats i picked up the Matte Finisher Nail Polish.

At first I wasn't sure what i was going to use it with but after sampling it on a few shades of polish i then had a great idea!

Black Matte - perfect & funky for gigs :)

I hadn't worn black since my 'emo' phase about 4 years ago so i had to stock up on a new bottle. I picked up this George Quick Dry version while in Asda on Friday night and for just £1.75 its a steal!

George Black Polish before e.l.f Matte Finisher

This is the second polish I've got from George's beauty range and can not recommend them enough. They have a great consistency to them - fairly thick but not 'gloopy' - for the majority of my nails they only needed one coat! And like it says on the bottle these really are quick-dry. Fab :)

Once dry i added e.l.f's Matte Finisher which dried in super quick time and left me with the desired results ....

e.l.f Matte Finisher - £1.75

I totally love how this turned out and will be using it for my upcoming gigs (i think I've got about 6 plus a festival for the summer!) I also thought it'd look good with a bit of nail art - maybe some silver dots or stripes ... Cant wait to experiment :) :)

Have you tried any of these? What are your 'Rock Chick' nail looks?




  1. Oh I'm looking for a black nail paint, I might check this one out since it's so cheap! x

  2. Wow, thats a pretty cool effect. Must try it out! I'm also a fan of george's polishes, they have some quite original colours. xxx

  3. Great effect! I love black nails! <3

  4. I hadn't thought of using my matte over black - I love it! x
