I’m sure it’s not shocking that one of my nicknames during high school was ‘Amazon’. When I first started hearing it, it was meant pejoratively, started by a few jerky guys. Obviously, little Richard did not do his homework – Amazons are pretty badass!
I’m still feeling the purple, so I decided to recreate the same mani, but with a better purple. The better purple is Sinful Colors “Amazon Woman”, which is just outstanding. I had forgotten that it’s rather matte on it’s own – but of course, I topped with Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat for extra matte-ening.
Of course, I started with Sinful Colors Base Coat (which I still cannot find in a store – eek). This is three coats of “Amazon Woman”, again using Nicole by OPI “Rainbow in the Sky-lie” on accent nails. The matte top coat is SO important for a long lasting manicure. Matte polishes are very delicate and chip within minutes it seems. Unless you are planning to paint every day, a matte top coat is absolutely necessary.
