This is going to be a love it or hate it one. It’s a deep forest green matte. There is not a hint of shine in this at all- it is absolutely matte.
I got the matte by adding rice powder to my franken. I guess loose, color-free mattifying powder that people use on their face would work too. Japanese ladies have used rice powder to keep their faces oil-free. It’s superfine and has no color. Unfortunately, it made some fine bumps in the polish, hence the name “Warty Pickle.” I think if I ground the rice powder up or used a better quality brand, I might get a smoother result.
I used medium yellow pigment from a Japanese theatrical makeup company(bright lemon color) and dropped it into OPI Dating A Royal, a deep blue creme. I had to add some clear polish because the pigment thickened the mix up. I then added the rice powder and mixed. This was opaque in one coat.
I’m not sure how I feel about mattes. They can be very hard to wear and require very well-groomed nails, otherwise it just looks like messy polish gone bad. It’s an interesting effect, but I don’t think I’d wear it every day.
