Matte Purple 'Cadbury Wrapper' nails

After some random swatch googling, my narrow mind was exposed to the existence of matte nail polish, so I decided to jump on the band wagon asap! Here I've used Rimmel matte top coat over la femme ebony and no.7 in vivid violet over that.

With flash

I found the actually texture of the nail quite intriguing, I really expected it to feel kind of chalky, but it's actually very smooth and satiny.

Also did some contrasting shiny French tips, using a clear top coat as a bit of an experiment, and I actually really like it, I reckon you could have a lot of fun doing contrasting shiny/matte nail art.

I have to say though, they really remind me of a Cadbury Wrapper, particularly the flash pic!


  1. Ooo I love this! I definitely need to dig out my ELF matte top coat and have a play around :) xx

  2. Your nails are very lovely, and I have to get me some Cadbury's, immediately.

  3. These look great! Definitely reminding me of Cadbury's hahaha :)

  4. oh my word!!!! I love your nails! I want a matte top coat so bad! And I LOVE Cadbury chocolates but only if they come from the UK. The Hershey bastardizations available here in the US taste like crap.

  5. love the colour, th effect of the clear tips looks fab x

  6. I bought some Avon matte nail varnish and I love it but I found it so hard to get a picture where it actually looks matte. I love how you did the shiny tips too, will be giving that one a go xxx

  7. OMG, I love this!
    I currently have a lilac/purple French manicure, but I know what I'm doing next!

  8. Whoa! I love this color. And I think the shiny tips look really cool. Good idea, very creative.
