I know I have stated in the past that matte isn't my favorite way to wear nail polish - and it still isn't! But, I must admit that it is growing on me. As this trend has caught on, companies have been coming out with some pretty cool colors and not just sticking with white and black.

Today's version is by Orly. And while it isn't really considered a "matte" and more of a "suede" (as the name suggests), I still consider it a matte. After I put this on I asked my BF what he thought about it. He thought it was a cool looking finish for a polish but he wasn't down with the color. lol - exactly the opposite of what I think. Either way, this color is really pretty and a nice change from my usual everyday look.

I was dying to put some konad on this in white, but I didn't think it would hold up with out a top coat of some sort - which isn't an option for a matte or suede polish. Of course if Sally's would hurry up and get the China Glaze matte tp's out I might be able to do something like that . . . .if only, Sally, if only . . . .!

I love using this skeleton body as a prop!! I think he just looks too cool, so expect to see more of him in October :)

Hi Brooke!
I hauled this one today! I'm not crazy about mattes either, but the color is unique...I own nothing like this.

That is a really cool color, although I am not the biggest fan of straight-up mattes.

I love this color. Still trying to back-pedal your way out of the matte liking. Hah! Looks fantastic on you.

Love this! I eyed it when I was in the other day, and finally convinced myself that the 4 China Glazes I was holding was plenty for me.
I should never listen to myself!

Oh wow I love this. Now if only Orly had this available here...

I agree with you. I was NOT feeling matte trends at ALL, but now a few have crept into my stash and I think they are growing on me! I saw these at Sally's yesterday and didn't get them, although the purple one was tempting.
