NYX matte nail polish in yellow [review with swatches!!]

Hello guys, 
first of all, 
I would like to thank the loveliest people ever who were there for me when  I had my meltdown post .. 
I deleted the post because I figured I don't want  to spread any "negativity"  whatsoever...
and some things are better dealt privately. 

But I really do appreciate everything that a handful of caring people told me,
you managed to put a smile on my face and filled my heart with positivity. 
Thank you so much. :))

Now onto this review =]
I have four of these NEW NYX matte nail polishes. 
I have white, yellow, orange and sky blue. 
I find them so pigmented.. 
They need a maximum of two swipes for intense colour payoff. 
They dry quickly. 
They also dry matte  [which I don't like]. 
I am not that much a fan of matte nail polishes.. 
just because they look kind of boring. 
But I just top them with my Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat. 
and Voila shiningness. 
In a way, I do like that they are matte because to dry matte they have to have certain chemicals 
that make it dry so quickly. 
And let's face it. 
Everyone loves a fast drying nail polish. 

I HIGHLY reccommend these, 
I'm very pleased with them, 
and they are very opaque, fast drying and pigmented. 

I do have a nail swatch for one of them today:

and this is yellow. 
Now because yellow is a tough colour to work with.. 
I used ELF's matte finisher clear nail polish 
as a base coat to avoid turning my nails yellow. 
 [and btw - I LOVE using that as a base coat]

I also topped it off with the Seche Vite fast drying nail topcoat
for the reasons I mentioned above, 
to add shine.

here is the nail swatch:

  1. I've never thought of using ELF matte finisher as a base coat! The colour matches the flowers on the blog backround, very pretty!
    P.S. I didn't read the previous post so I don't know the problem but I send you a huge hug! You are a very nice person and you deserve the best!!

  2. ahhh still on the lookout for a yellow like that! do not like matte though

  3. awh thank you so much NatalieDouka, you're so sweet xxxx :D

    @Isabel.. yeah I don't like matte either but I honestly don't mind it for this product because a clear top coat is all I need xD

  4. How does the matte topcoat work as a base? I've not thought about trying that out. x

  5. I quite like it.. it definitely protects from the yellowness and stuff.. but it still chips haha xD

  6. I love the color!
