I paid £1 for this in Poundland and kind of feel like I've robbed Revlon, its not totally matte in my opinion so I added a matte top coat and it looks even better,the matte finish coupled with the shimmer gives the polish a velvety look, super fast drying time.
Im gonna head back to poundland and pick up the other matte suede shades they had in stock today.
This colour looks better in the bottle than it does on the fingernails. I can see someone with very long nails pulling it off but it just looks dull on mine. I guess I was hoping for something elegant like a matte black with a green shine to it, but instead it just always looks "half finished". It dries quickly enough.
I really like Emerald City. I love the dark green colour, with the hint of a sparkle. my friend got it for her birthday and it was love at first sight. i have looked out for it ever since and found it last week for $7 NZD which is a bargain, as it is $25 normally. I have to say I was one of the people who fell into the trap of not realising it was matte, but am not bothered, it was just a surprise. i really love this colour. perfect for autumn and winter which i am just coming into :)
I love this color, only I dislike the matte portion of it. It is a beautiful color, dont get me wrong, I just think it looks too dull for me. I love adding a top coat, making it shine and sparkle. It dries quickly and lasts a few days.
I love this polish. What originally drew me to this polish was the name because The Wizard of Oz has been my favorite movie since I was 4 but it just so happened that I loved the color as well. I had never tried a matte suede polish before so I was unsure of what to expect. The polish applied very well on my nails and after applying two coats I applied a top coat making it look the way it looks in the bottle...a gorgeous emerald green color with a slight green shimmer to it. I recommend trying this whether you like the matte look or if you like a more polished shiny look.
This colour is gorgeous and the right shade of green for me. It goes on evenly but is a little bit more stubborn to remove. The polish works best with two coats and a top coat for gloss, otherwise, the polish can chip after a few days. If you want a good, shimmery shade of green nail polish, go for this one.
I love this nail polish colour, it has a tiny hint of silver shimmer in it and it is so versatile. Its matte suede finish looks really unique, and you don't need a base or top coat for this finish. You could however apply a top coat to give it a nice shine. It dries easily and quickly compared to the other Revlon nail polish, not sure why, but that's a good point. 2 ways to wear it, just the right shade of green i was looking for, deep green with a hint of shimmer, good quality, well worth the buy!
Emerald city is a matte dark green that contains some shimmers in it.but,it stays matte,so,if you put a top coat,it becomes shiny!last long with a top coat,nice color for xmas,you can put gold glitters,black crackled nail polish over it!love it!
I bought this when it was on sale. I like the color in the bottle and also liked the name, I'll admit I didn't realize that this was a matte finish polish. I think based on the name "Emerald City", I was expecting something that really shined and sparkled. And I am willing to be that other people looked at the name and not the "matte suade" printed on the bottle. It does look very pretty with a glossy top coat.
The problem is that it chips quite easily. And whenever I use this I end up taking it off after a couple days.
This is a matte forest green wiht a little shimmer. It's nice and you can apply a top coat and make it glossy too. This is an easy matte to apply and drys really smooth and nicely.
