Glitter from Ricky's NYC

A couple weeks ago, I shared some bright cremes from the Mattése Elite line, courtesy of Ricky's NYC, who sent them for review. They were nice enough to send along two more polishes for review, this time glitters from the Me Amour collection.

Embrasse Moi is a bright red violet color; it's primarily small glitter with some larger hex glitter scattered into the mix. I needed only two coats for good coverage and it was pretty smooth without topcoat—these swatches have none.



I left this one on longer than I'd planned because it was just so sparkly and blingy that I wanted to look at it more.





The second polish, Amour De Ma Vie, is not quite as glitter-packed, though it's plenty interesting to look at. It's got a black base with a mix of small glitters in mostly silver, red, lilac, and light blue. The glitter doesn't get lost in the black, and once again I used only two coats and no top coat.









I liked both of these so much that I'm thinking I need to order the other ones in the collection. Well played, Ricky's, well played.

  1. Very pretty! Embrasse Moi looks so similar to Orly Bubbly Bombshell. Hmmm... maybe EM is a bit more purple and has more than one shape of glitter. It's been a while since I've worn BB.
