After seeing tons of blogs review ManGlaze, I wanted to try it out myself, so I bought the whole line (don't faint, it's only 4 bottles) and will be reviewing 3 of them over the next few days. Gotta admit, I was a little apprehensive at first buying something called ManGlaze, but I figured it's a good ice breaker.
Fuggen Ugly is the "grey" of the group. This is the original matte nail polish, marketed in 2007. I have purposely avoided matte polishes because they normally chip after just a few hours, but ManGlaze is one that's a laster. I can't wait to do an actual "last test" soon - it was supposed to happen this weekend, but my son had other plans for my hands (he wouldn't sit still).
I used a base coat of Seche Natural, and then 2 coats of Fuggen Ugly. I was really happy with the dry time and consistency of this polish - most mattes dry so fast on the nail that you can barely get one coat on evenly, but this had just the right dry time to it.
Check this out! It's the perfect steel grey that I've been looking for, and such a great application!
I really am happy with this color - it's probably my new favorite "quick" polish that doesn't take a long time to apply or dry.
Even in the shade, this picture holds up quite well - it's a pretty solid grey... no blue or purple undertones to it like some greys.
Now, for fun, I added a top coat of Seche Vite. My pointer finger was smeared about 5 seconds into it though - again, my son was just full of snips and snails and puppy dog tails that day.
Do you see that rainbow sparkle?! Holy cow, I was in LOVE.
You can see a little more of the rainbow in this one (middle finger). Holy hotness, the Seche really blings this out, but as you can see, you could also just wear it matte and still have a wonderful manicure. Aces, ManGlaze - aces.
