Review and swatches: Manhattan Naughty Nails LE
This week Manhattan Naughty Nails LE is coming to our stores.
Whole limited edition is dedicated to nails and consists of 5 color polishes, base&top coat in one and glitter top coat:
You probably already guessed which one is my favorite polish from Naughty Nails collection … Manhattan 78V of course.
First layer is watery, but second covers up the visible nail line. This is medium light slightly muted blue. 2 layers + top coat.
Manhattan 81T caught my eye on the promo material so I was looking forward to trying it out. Light green polishes always walk on the thin line with me – either I love them or hate them. 81T had yellowish undertone and looks quite playful and elegant on me. Application was very similar to those of 78V – second layer gives full coverage.
Manhattan 61V stands out from Naughty Nails collection. While other shades are lively and pastel like, this one is brownish-grayish purple. This is the kind of color I use when I want clean look that doesn’t stand out too much. 2 coats + top coat.
Last two shades apply little bit patchy, so I can’t say the formula is my favorite.
Manhattan 31L comes in nice peachy coral shade that actually looks good on me. I used 2 thicker layers + top coat.
Manhattan 51T is light pink … the color I’m not crazy about but a lot of you swear by it. This is the only polish from Naughty Nails LE that I didn’t wear as full manicure.
Manhattan Pro Shine Glitter top coat consists mostly from silver shimmer – possibly smaller glitter, but it doesn’t leave scratchy surface and is not so difficult to remove so I would say this is shimmer. I applied it over other polishes from Naughty Nails LE:
I personally like the combo with peachy and blues polish the best. The most visible effect would be if I layered it over darker shades … I’ll have to try out other combos.
I need more time to test Manhattan Pro Shine Base & Top Coat out. My first impression is that this is not one of those super fast drying top coats, but not one of those super slow either. It does give nice shine though.
Manhattan started to name polishes in their newest LE Hands Up!. Now they just have to add names on the bottles and I’ll be in 7th heaven. I simply can not remember the combo of numbers and letters … in short – I’m never really sure which polish are we talking about.
So, are you favorite colors similar as mine or …?
