This past month I have been very excited at being able to buy MAC products online from @debenhamsbeauty and as a big Superman fan MAC’s latest lust-have collection Wonder Woman had been the talk of the office for months… so when March 3rd FINALLY arrived I clicked, bought and eagerly awaited the arrival of my beauty bounty.
I wasn’t disappointed – my superhero stash arrived last week and so with a *happy smile* set about painting my nails with MAC Obey Me from the Wonder Woman Collection. The Colour was a fantastic vibrant American Superhero red and all in the first coat, this was proving to be a match made in Marvel heaven.
The finish is nice and glossy but I wanted to give it a little edge so I applied @NailsInc Westminster Bridge Matte top coat, this was my first time using a matte effect varnish and I have to say the jury is still out on a final decision. The application is super simple and with the fat brush only takes one or two strokes to cover the nail leaving a pro effect. However the Matte effect does seem to really dull down the colour – which after going for the Superhero Red look was a bit disappointing.
I do find (and hopefully I’m not alone in this respect) that painting your nails red can cause a nightmare if you don’t quite manage to colour within the lines so to speak – for this I have a handy little tip… Pour out a small amount of Nail Varnish Remover into the cap of the remover, then using an old lip brush wet it with the remover and use the brush to tidy up around your nail, dip the brush back into the remover and ta-da pro perfect nails!
