NOTD: Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Night & Degas

Revlon Nail Art Expressionist in Night & Degas. One coat of Night {Matte Black}; followed by one coat swipes of Degas {White Crème with a Matte Finish}.

The Revlon Nail Art Expressionist line is actually one that features two colors - one for a base color, and one for nail art. Though nail art isn't typically my thing {due to how difficult it can be to perfect it}; since I was buying this solely for Night {the matte black shade}, I figured I would give it a shot.

First things first...if nail art isn't your forte {i.e. it winds up looking like a hot mess}, you absolutely must invest in the Nail Art Expressionist line. The brush made for nail art is super skinny, so it's simple to create professional-looking lines {or polka dots if that's more your style}.

For every step of this mani I used one coat, and found that the matte finish {no glossiness here} was fast-drying; however, I did experience a few chips at the tip of the nail {an extra coat may have prevented this}.

Personally, I still prefer a single, solid color for manis {like the matte black you see below, which is Night worn on its own}; however, a little nail art can be fun for a change - especially when it's reminiscent of Beetlejuice.

The black and white looks so perfect. I need to be more experimental with my nail art. I just stick to solid colours.
