Hello lovelies,

A while ago I've received a MASH Matte Polish so I've been playing with it for a bit. I was quite excited to try it because after using up my Essie Matte About You I was looking for the best matte topcoat.

MASH Matte Polish comes in a bottle with silver cup and the bottle has 15ml. This is the first time I've tried something from MASH Nails.

MASH Matte Polish provides very good matte effect. If I would compare Essie and MASH matte topcoats I'd say Essie creates a bit stronger matte finish. But if you will look at the pictures you'll see that MASH Matte Polish does the job too! I actually like it very much. It is not thick like Essie and it applies very well.

The matte effect doesn't show at first but as the polish dries it starts to dry matte.  So let's have a look at the matte effect on some of my manicures:

Overall, it's a very good matte topcoat, certainly better than ELF one (absolutely horrible!). To check out the MASH Matte polish or any other MASH products visit their website.

Hello lovelies,

I've reviewed SpaRitual Illume few days ago and I've also done a 3/4 gradient manicure with it which I'll show you today.

I've applied two thick coats of SpaRitual Illume as it has a semi-jelly formula. Then I started to create the gradient effect using two SpaRitual polishes - Knowledge and Clarity. Both Knowledge and Clarity are pink glitters so are great for gradient manicures. I've done the gradient effect on 3/4 of the nails just to make it a bit different.

So what do you think? Do you prefer gradient in the first half of the nail or on 3/4 of the nail?
