Hello Beauties! If you missed my last couple of posts on Mattese Elite polishes , you better catch up because here is another! Mattese Elite is the cosmetics line created by Ricky’s NYC, a ultra-hip beauty supply with locations found on the east coast. It includes everything from eye shadow, makeup brushes, and of course, nail polish!
The glittery creation I will be swatching today is from their Me Amour Collection, and is called Amour De Ma Vie, translated to “The love of my life”. Amour De Ma Vie is a dark base with multi-color glitters ranging from red, white, and (i think) aqua colored glitters. I decided to use it as a top coat over a grape purple polish I hadn’t used yet, and it turned out awesome! I suspect you can get full coverage in 2-3 coats if used alone, but I was itching to use more than one polish (as usual).
I did a tape mani and figured this was a great way to make it into a more edgy manicure. Likey?

I have to say that now that I’ve tried 4 different colors from the Mattese Elite brand (glitters and solids), I’m super happy with their formulas. I can honestly say that it IS something to gush over. Very smooth, no clumping, no streaking, nice brush and lasts at least a couple of days before the first chip appears. Bravo Ricky’s! I want more!
Amour De Ma Vie can be purchased on WWW.RICKYSNYC.COM for only $5.99; or get all six shades from the collection and get free shipping! Whoop Whoop!
P.S that last one is actually from my beauty bloggin’ buddy, Kit from Frances Is A Beauty. She swatched, I just realized I didn’t….yet :/ Enjoy!
