Sun-Tried-Day: Revlon Matte Suedes! And...a Giveaway?

Greetings All!

Firstly, I just wanted to comment on the fact that I hit a major (for me!) milestone on the blog...50 followers! I can't believe there are 50 people out there who want to look at my nails lol. Thank you to all of my lovely followers, and to everyone else who reads the blog! I know we all go on about how we blog for ourselves, and it's true, but it's always nice to know that other people see and like our nails too. After all, pretty things are meant to be looked at!

So, you know what a blog milestone means...a giveaway! Not at this particular moment, unfortunately. There are things I need to do, not least of which learn Rafflecopter! Hopefully in about a week, I'll have something to give away to you lovely people!

As it's Sunday, I have some more untrieds to share with you! 2 polishes from the Revlon Matte Suede collection. I only recently completed this collection (at least I think I did, I'm only aware of four!), and wow, they are seriously special!

Fire Fox was on my wish list for, like, months. I know it's not hard to find, but I wanted to find it cheap (I got the other three for £1 each!), and my  mum finally found it for £1! It's a bright, slightly coral-y red, lighter than I had thought, but beautiful. This is 2 coats (although I probably could have done with a third!)

Just look at that finish! So soft and gorgeous! Although I would have preferred it just a touch darker, it's still a really good matte red with subtle sparkle. And it's so much better than matte top coat over a red.

Next up is Ruby Ribbon. Once again, this was a polish I was a little 'meh' about, that went and stole the show!

Now this is what I call a nail polish! This burgundy beauty dries a lot darker than in the bottle, which I think is the key. This looks like expensive leather furniture, it's super soft too! I love everything about this - the colour, the texture, the finish, the formula (2 easy coats), everything!

And I couldn't resist a little nail art!

A belated St Davids dragon scale style manicure! Stamped with Gals GA14 and Barry M Gold Foil. My thumb got a bit messed up, it's already too long for the stamp!

I also did a little gradient with the two.

I'm rather happy with the gradient on my thumb! Oh, and this is what it looks like with topcoat, by the way. Still lovely, but why would you want to do that to such pretty polishes?!

Another very long post, my apologies! Congratulations if you made it this far! Now you really do deserve a prize lol
