Except McDonalds. That coffee is naaaaaasty.
I bring up coffee not just to admire how amazing it is, but because I had purchased a mini collection of four different coffee scented nail polishes by the brand MTK Design, You may remember a post I did a while back on a prototype (now named "Every Girl's Dream") by this brand. I liked it so much I wanted some more ^_^ Today I'm gonna show you some pictures from their Cafe Collection with a review :) There are four polishes in this collection - check them out!
The four polishes are French Vanilla Latte (pointer finger) - a shimmery golden brown that smells of french vanilla coffee; Mocha Foam (middle finger) - a chocolate milk colored creme polish that smells of cocoa; Joe (ring finger) - a chocolate brown with a nice coppery shimmer that smells of coffee; and lastly, Double Shot - a dark, cocoa brown with a golden shimmer that also has a coffee scent but is a little stronger.
French Vanilla is very thin, but smooth in application. I did 4 coats to get it mostly opaque (you can still see the whites of the nail in certain angles outdoors), and it dried fairly quickly to a shiny finish. Smelled just like french vanilla coffee! Mocha Foam took 2 coats for complete opacity, and applied a bit thicker, but did not drag or clump. It dried pretty quickly to a muted shiny finish, and smelled like delicious cocoa for sure - probably my favorite of the scents ^_^ I used 3 coats of Joe because while it only needed 2 for full coverage, I felt one more really evened out the color. Smelled like coffee for sure, and dried just as fast as the others, but to a more satin finish. Double Shot took 2 coats for opacity, dried quick to a satin finish, and smelled like coffee, though not too much stronger than Joe.
These were all so fun, and really lovely shades of brown! I will say, though, that Joe and Double Shot seemed to lose their scent fairly quickly - like, by the end of the day :( That is the only negative aspect about the polish though. It's a great little quartet!
Here are some MTK links for you:
As I said in yesterday's post, there will be no You-Pick-My-Art this week, since I will be out of town. However, I will still be blogging and will be around on Facebook and Instagram with some polishy
Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!! See you soon <3
