Way Back Wednesday #5- Revlon

*High five for ya girl keeping up with the WBW posts!!!

So back in 2013, Revlon (a brand I don’t normally purchase polishes from) released a set of scented polishes. When I think of scented polishes I remember growing up playing with toy nail polish sets, which smelled like candy.

Well Revlon came out with their adult version lol and it was a hit!! I found myself running behind all the blog posts relating that it’s been spotted. There I was going to and fro all the drugstores for my next hit of lacquer lol.

Remember these?

I recently saw these in a Kmart clearance bin, I didn’t swipe because I remember that a few of these tend to have an overwhelming scent. Loved the formula though!!

Thanks for reading!!

Way Back Wednesday #4- Duck

The winner for #4 episode of Way Back Wednesday is the spawn from a comical “reality” show Duck Dynasty. Say what you want but I enjoyed watching this show. The wit of the brothers, wives, parents and kids just put me in a happy place to see a family enjoying each other.

One day prancing through Walmart clearance aisle I spotted these polishes, never knew they even existed until that moment. I did know that they had other promotional items like cups and swamp themed placemats and such, but what a pleasant surprise to see polish! I was there for it!! These released back in 2014.

I like the glitter based formula, had zero problems with the application. If these polishes was just a trial run, they should have made more for a marathon. I hope my thoughts convey to you that I’d buy more if produced lol.

Did you see these in Walmart? Better yet, did you ever watch the show?

Way Back Wednesday #3- Sally Hansen 

*Three fingers up*

Hey y’all, 3 down with many more to go. I’m bring back from the memory back these textured finish polishes by Sally Hansen. I was so excited to have these, again back when textured finish was all the rage (not saying it’s not still cause I’ll still rock them). I promise you that textured finish polishes are not all that I’ll be posting!!

Do tell, did you buy these? If so, how’d they do your nails lol!

Stay tuned for WBW #4 and thanks for reading!!

Way Back Wednesday #2- Milani 

I hope I’ve made you say zzzzzzzomg she went back… I aim to please (wink).

Rummaging through the stash I bumped into these old dusties. I can remember when these came out, it was when textured polish was all the rage! Brands were testing their bait (me) and I bit on the Milani one lol. 

I remember the yellow being my ultimate favorite when I wore it, I will admit that the rough finish took some getting used to. 

What do you remember about these?

Thanks for reading!

Way Back Wednesday #1- Nicole by OPI 

Today, here at Nailmatticbeauty I’m starting a series called “Way back Wednesday”, in memory of polishes that has stuck out to me in my memory bank from way back when…. I’ll be featuring polishes/collections that released a while ago that was popular or LE. Those were the days when I ran to every Walgreens, Kmart or Walmart looking for certain polishes JUST so that it can now collect dust in my stash lol (you laugh cause it’s true for you too).

Walk with me down memory lane while I reminisce on my nails’ wet dreams lol.

My first feature is the Nicole by OPI “Roughles” textured polish collection. These 4 colors released back in 2014, I actually didn’t like the textured polishes that much until these came out. I loved the fun Easter colored themes to them (which they did release around that holiday). I actually like these with or without top coat.

Did you purchase these? For me, I couldn’t wait to get my nails on these (or these on my nails rather lol). I ended up buying doubles of the pink & yellow color ANNNNDDDDD I got more of them when they went in Kmart’s clearance bin for $3 (they retailed for $7.99).

Don’t be shy, tell me…. Are these still in your stash?

I’ve created the hashtag #lacquerlivesmatter for all the way back lacquers in my collection. On WBW’s I’ll be searching the hashtag #lacquerlivesmatter to see your “way back lacquers”, so join in on the party. Tag me also, can’t wait to see them!!

Kiss Nail Polish from Dollar Tree

“I already have that color I don’t need it”-said no woman ever (especially not me) lol. When these polishes first released, I spotted them in Kmart. They were priced for more than $2 and I just wasn’t wow’d enough to swipe. 

It was at Dollar Tree when I lost my memory lol. I saw these for a dollar and it made me holla!!

There isn’t anything unique about the colors but the formula is amazing, these can easily be one coaters.
Check out the colors I bought.








Aforementioned about the formula, it is excellent and dries to a glossy finish, I didn’t swatch these with a top coat. These could easily be one coaters. I did have a slight application problem with Fantasia & Sweet Angel being a little on the thick side, but waiting in between layers always helps–along with polish thinner.

Now I’m not one to tell you what to do buuuuuut go get you a few lol!

My Little Watermarble 

Watermarble is my favorite sport!! 

For this mani I used 3 polishes from the latest collaboration release from China Glaze. This collection features 12 polishes all dedicated to my childhood oops I meant My Little Pony. Yes I’m proud to say my childhood, I had all the My Little Pony toys my mom allowed herself to be coerced into buying lol. Sorry mom, I didn’t keep my promise of never wanting any other toy after that lol.

The colors I used below: L to R: Too Busy Being Awesome, Cute Mark The Spot, Sweet As Pinkie Pie.

These wm so beautifully I had absolutely no problems 


If you haven’t purchased any of these polishes, you’re missing out a good mani and some good memories.

There’s also 2 LE sets that you can purchase on eBay, Sally’s and Ulta Beauty.

Have you purchased any polish from this collection? Which one(s)?
