Mattese Elite- Carnival Swatches

Hey ladies. Today is an awesome special day. My Mommie birtday is today!!!! She turned the big 5-0 and still looks like she's 40 years young. Happy B-DAY Mommie!!! Love you!

I also have swatches of two shades of the Mattese Elite Carnival Collection! This collection is full of bright, colorful neons.

First up is Passistas. It is a vibrant, electric purple. It is gorgeously bright and it is a jelly. Application was a breeze and it also doesn't dry matte like most neons. This is 3 coats.

Desfiles De Samba is a bright teal green neon jelly. I loved this the most and hated it also get back to that soon. It is 3 coats

Now I know you might had been wondering "Why the hell is the green one in a Sally Hansen bottle?????" The  the tragic answer is Desfiles De Samba actually broke in the box sent to me. );
You see the bubble wrap? That is how it was in the box the polishes were not wrap they were just thrown into that bag and put into a huge ass box for only two polishes. Like I mean like how the Zoya boxes are and if you shook the box you could hear it pinging- ponging around! Just a sad, sad mess.
I was literally scraping it into my empty bottle with the brush hoping it would work. I don't think I'll ever go through that trouble anymore. Now I don't know how they are normally sent but I hope this is not how they usually do it.
Other than the fact that this one broke (I still will get a new one soon I really love that damn color!) I think these are really great. If you love neons this collection is to die for I can't wait till the summer weather comes and these will get a lot of uses from me! 

These are now available at Ricky's NYC

  1. Both look amazing! Ugh, but it's so sad about the packaging!! I'm surprised you got enough to paint your nails with! :(

    1. It was still really wet so it had must've just broken and was pretty easy to scrape up. But it was a MESS!!!

  2. You've suckered me in with these neons!

  3. I have and Love Desfiles de Samba. I have one other color. I must buy the rest of them soon especially the Blurple color. Love them.
