Okay so I’ve swatched a few of these polishes & I’m pretty much in love. Expect to see A LOT of Mattese Elite in the upcoming weeks! This is the first requested swatch of the bunch, “Nutty Hat Guy” which I imagine is supposed to be somewhat dupe-y to OPI’s Mad as a Hatter, one of my favorite glitters. Although they may look a bit similar, I can absolutely confirm that they ARE different. If you’re interested in seeing side by side swatches, just let me know!
Nutty at Guy: A very dense, small hex glitter mainly in the shades silver & lavender also accompanied by some red & green glitters of the same size & shape in a clear base. Easily opaque in 2-3 coats.
I have it swatched here over black because I didn’t foretell the density…love it! This does on a bit thick but that doesn’t bother me. I’d rather have a glitter too thick than too thin though. The red is definitely my favorite part because when it catches the light against the other shades its especially striking. I mean, check out the twinkling green & red with flash…wowie! This gives a really ethereal look while having fab coverage. Plus, its purple so I clearly had to have it.
Are you feeling Nutty Hat Guy? Want to see a side-by-side comparison with OPI’s Mad as a Hatter? I have a lot more coming up!
