Hawaiian Color Matte and Blitzen

Of course, because everyone loves China Glaze Fortune Teller mattified, I had to try it with Hawaiian Color as well, and here it is! I just hate how matte topcoats make the polish cloudy instead of just matte. This is China Glaze Matte Magic, but I think I'm going to go looking for Essie Matte About You because it looks like it may be a little better.

NOTE:  Seche Vite's shrinkage drives me nuts... but it's the only one I've found that REALLY dries my polish in minutes.  As in, I took two rambunctious German shepherds to puppy school RIGHT after finishing my nails once and didn't get a single ding!

Oh speaking of, here's a bonus pic of my little white shepherd boy, Blitzen.  I adopted him from the White German Shepherd Rescue here in Phoenix last November and I consider us to be each others' Christmas present last year.

 Blitzen (White German Shepherd)

Isn't he smiley?  He's ALWAYS smiling, where my little girl dog always has sad puppy dog eyes.  It may not show in the picture, but this guy has a HUGE HONKER.  It's a diabolical nose that knocks over anything and everything.  Also, he's the shedding-est dog EVER, and I wouldn't give him up for anything in the world.


  1. Looks beautiful matte, I have the hard candy matte and it also makes the color look cloudy, your dog is a cutie an so funny bout his nose knocking things over.

  2. I am not crazy about matte nail polishes, but I actually like your combo! :)

  3. This looks awesome!
    And I think it looks the same as the China Glaze matte topcoat, but I do love Essie Matte About You...I lost my bottle when I moved back to school and have been in mourning ever since.

  4. I love your blog! I just found it yesterday and I'm enjoying going back thru all your older posts! I had to comment also because my husband and I also have a love for GSD! In my perfect world we would have one in each color ;)
