Manglaze ~ Butt Taco & Fatty’s got more blood

Manglaze  ~ Butt Taco & Fatty’s got more blood
Orange & Blood red matte polishes

Manglaze! I’ve liked them since I got to know them!

Today I’ll show you something cool I did with two of them. At least I think it’s cool, and I hope you think so too!

I started out with Butt Taco, which is a bright matte orange. The formula is great, and not at all difficult as some mattes are. The polish just glided right on! I used two coats for full opacity. Drying time is good – although don’t let this baby fool you. It looks dry easily a minute before it actually is dry! :D

And let me tell you something: I’m not into orange polishes at all, but I friggin’ love this! Let me show you what I’m talking about; here’s two coats, no topcoat:

Manglaze: Butt Taco

Is that cool or what?? Here’s another shot!

Then I decided to make sort of a dip-dye mani. I used a makeup sponge, mixed some dollops of Butt Taco with some dollops of Fatty’s Got more Blood and dapped that onto my nails. It wasn’t my intention for my nails to look the same. Here’s the result:

I have to say that I really, really like this!

You know I like things shiny, don’t you? I like shiny things so much that I applied a layer of Poshé topcoat over my mani, to see what that might look like. Take a look for yourself:

That makes the colours even more pretty in my opinion. I like how the shimmers show up so much more.

One last shot where I’m holding both of the bottles:

I have to say that I’m still loving the few Manglaze polishes I’ve got. They’re cool colours, and I love my polishes to be shiny, so I’m happy that these mattes look absolutely fabulous with a topcoat!

So – what is your verdict? Do you think this ended up being a cool mani or what?
