Mattése Elite Desfiles de Samba

I told you about the Mattése Elite Carnaval Collection a few weeks ago, but now I actually have one of these neons for you!  Desfiles de Samba is a neon lime green that wants to photograph blue, but I color corrected for you to get back to true color.  I used a base of Poshe and 3 coats of polish.  Normally neons dry matte but this one didn't really do that so I didn't use a top coat.

Here it is in the sun - look at that shine!  You can also see a bit of VNL on the pinkie, but I didn't really notice it much while wearing this manicure.

In the indirect sun though, you can see more of the VNL on all nails.  

Here in the shade, there's not much difference - just nice, shiny, pretty green.  It almost reminds me of a glow in the dark polish but it doesn't glow in the dark.

Indoors with the flash - well that's not so lovely.  The camera doesn't want to focus too well because of the neon properties of the polish but it does do well!  There will be a lot of neons coming out this summer but I haven't seen this shade of green yet, so this is a keeper for me!

Mattése Elite Carnaval Nail Polish retails for $5.99 and is available for purchase exclusively at Ricky’s NYC store locations and at
