I know that this is Florida, the Sunshine State, but lately, its looked more like Seattle or London. Being that I was born in June, I need sunshine in my life, so when I can't stand the gray clouds any longer, I must "create" my own sunshine. So this time, I looked to a fellow Floridian, Jody of SoFlaJo. Earlier this year, I was fortunate enough to receive her Matte Love collection. Previously, I had always limited matte nail polishes to Fall and Winter. All the matte polishes I had seen to date were dark and/or neutral colors. But Jody's Matte collection includes a gorgeous golden, shimmer yellow matte she named Going Down?. Jody describes Going Down? as "A bold shimmery yellow matte. This color reminds me of that famous big yellow bird on TV!"
Even without a shiny top coat, there is still a golden shimmer to this polish; adding a topcoat brightens the shimmer.
A concern I had always had with matte polishes was that you don't apply a fast dry top coat because that would cancel the matte effect. I don't know if Jody claims this collection to be fast dry, but I can say from my personal experience, even with 3 coats, my manicure was completely dry in less than 10 minutes.
Jody's was the first Indie collection I had ever tried but I can assure you it won't be the last. I love the level of creativity I'm seeing from fellow nail addicts, LOL! I still have 3 others from the Love Matte collection to share along with another collection from Jody. I can't wait to see what other gems she has in the making.
