Matte polishes have made a big comeback and Sally Hansen also released a collection of matte polishes. I got two shades, 610 Crushed and 630 Lush to test.



These are actually a little different than your usual matte polish. Like the name suggests these dry almost textured, concrete looking and very matte. I quite like the effect. Application was surprisingly easy. No balding or streaks. I applied two coats of Crushed but would’ve got away with just one. With Lush I was smarter and only applied one coat. Dry time for two coats wasn’t impossible and it was very quick for just one coat over Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! base coat.



Since these were highly pigmented and very well behaving I decided to try if they’d work for stamping too and yes they did. Since these are fast drying mattes you have to be fast but other than that they worked great. Here’s stamping design I did using a squishy XL stamper and Dream Girl 16 stamping plate.
