NOTD: Matte Black Plum

 
ulta3 Black Plum is a dark red-purple semi-transparent polish with lots of microglitter particles. It's one of my favourite polishes that I wear whenever I can't decide what to wear, or when I'm uninspired - it features a lot on my toes!

I've recently started putting a matte topcoat (Rimmel Matte Pro Mattifying Topcoat, borrowed from my sister a few more times than the word "borrow" really allows) over it on the second day or so, which gives an interesting effect - the glitter is still visible, but subdued. It's definitely a great way to change up an old favourite!



Also, I have 50 followers now - thank you so much for all your reading and following lovely GIrlies! I think it's time for a giveaway soon... ;)

    1. I love how interesting the little microglitter is - much cooler than a plain matte creme!

    1. It is, isn't it? Micro gliter + matte = <3

  5. There are very few matte polishes I've seen that I actually like and this is one of them. Very pretty!

    1. I'm not too fond of matte on creme, but on some shimmers it's really cool!

    1. I'm so undecided - after a few days of wearing glossy I prefer matte, and after a few days of wearing matte I prefer shiny again!

  8. I love this reddish-purple color, it looks fantastic matte! I don't have a matte top coat yet but when I get it I will keep this in mind as a great color to mattify!

  9. LOVE how this looks matte! I love matt polishes over shimmers or creams that have glitter on them, because it makes the glitter almost look like it was frozen.

    1. I agree, matte over glitter is so pretty! It also makes it easier to photograph ;)
