Manic(ure) Monday: Leather Matte

If you follow me on Instagram you will have witnessed that on Saturday I was able to attend yet another super cool blogger event. It was the "dm-Marken Camp Beauty" which took place in Düsseldorf for the second time. A detailed post about the event will follow these days but today we're gonna talk nail polish only (what else on a Manic(ure) Monday?). In between the sessions, which were the essence of the camp, we had the possibility to get our hair, make-up or manicure done and so I took the opportunity to try one of the new p2 nail polishes called "Leather Matte". As the name suggests the nail polishes have a matte finish that looks like leather or suede. I went for the dark bordeaux shade "070 insider's diary".

My friend Julia, with whom I went to the camp and who was kind enough to take these pictures, had already been able to try the nail polishes before and just like her I didn't like the finish that much. While I really adore matte nail polishes, this leather texture looks as if my bedclothes had impressed on my nails while sleeping (which is an effect I usually try to avoid at all costs...). If you want to take a closer look at the finish I suggest reading Julia's post which has more detailed pictures. Anyway while writing this post I'm applying a layer of clear top coat which isn't able to remove all of the structure but at least the result looks a bit more neat.
Now you may be wondering why I even talk about these new nail polishes if I don't like the finish, right? Well just take a look at these colours! Aren't they a dream? Especially the shade number 020 looked even flashier in real life. And maybe there are some of you who like the idea of a leather finish? Tell me in the comments!

Leather finish or not, have fun painting your nails and getting them ready for the week ahead!
