Review: Nail Girls Nail Polish in Matte Purple

Ever heard of Nail Girls nail polish? Well, this brand is completely new to me and I was very excited when I was contacted and asked to review their product. This is the shade I received (it's a little warmer in real life and a trouble to photograph).

The bottle resembles the American Apparel one, doesn't it? Very nice shape for stashing, if I may say.
And without further ado, here's how it looks on my nails.

Nail Girls, Matte Purple, 2-3 coats

Let me clear out the 2-3 coats thing first. I managed to get an uneven amount of polish on the brush, so I used 2 slightly thicker coats on some nails and 3 thin coats on others. Nothing to be worried about, this polish applies very nicely. I like the brush, but the plastic part of it, is a bit too long for my liking. Just like with the American Apparel polishes - it has to be longer because of the bottle shape and it makes it a little harder to apply the polish. I shouldn't complain that much though. I didn't have to do any clean-up, so I guess it's not that bad. The polish doesn't really dry to a matte finish, it's rather satin-y looking. I have to use a top coat most of the time, to make my manicure last longer. Here's how Matte Purple looks with top coat.

Nail Girls, Matte Purple, 2-3 coats + Essence, Sealing Top Coat, 1 coat

I'm still not completely sure, but I think I like it a little better when it's glossy. What about you?

For those of you who like your polishes as 'healthy' as possible - Nail Girls polishes are 4 free: they contain no dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde or camphor. You can buy these nail polishes on Nail Girls website for £10.50 per bottle.

They have a nice range of shades. Here are some of my favorite...

*The product was sent to me by the company.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. Zelo lepa barva :) In tudi meni je bolj pri srcu glossy verzija, ta pol mat učinek mi ni najbolj simpatičen..

  2. Sicer ne maram takih vijoličastih barv, ampak plastični finiš mi je vedno tako zanimiv, da sem čisto navdušena nad izgledom na drugi fotki. :)

    Glede na to, kako problematičen odtenek je tole, moram pristaviti, da ti zelo pristaja. ;)

  3. It reminds me of the Orly Plastics collection more so than a matte polish. I definitely love it glossy though

  5. Everything about this bottle looks exactly like the POP Beauty polishes - right down to the brushed metal cap!

  6. These look really pretty. I like the satin finish. I like the olive green shade. I've never heard of this brand. Looks nice.

  7. I love that purple, and also the first blue you highlighted. I never heard about the brand though, and it'll definitely not be available where I'm at.

  8. This colour suits you, I like it both matte (or what seems like a rubbery finish like Orly) and with top coat. I also like the range of colours but I'm not sure about the price :(
    When I first saw the bottle I immediately thought of POP!

  9. I hate matte polishes so I'd go for the glossy finish as well. I'd probably use this shade as a base for glitter. Recently, clear, creamy shades don't really appeal to me.

  10. Barva je nekaj posebnega, vendar mi je bolj všeč mat učinek, izgleda še bolj posebno :)
