"This fall, Gelish MINI and Morgan Taylor are taking the bull by the horns with the Matadora 2017 Collection. Inspired by the vibrant culture and scenery of Spain, this collection includes wonderous shades sure to transport you to the beautiful country! Rich fall tones of navy, purple and reds were pulled straight from the streets de Espana to capture their essence.
It takes two to tango, so dance your way into fall with matching nail lacquer and gel shades!
"Spain is a country full of passion and color; from the architecture and people to the food and fashion," says Danny Haile, CEO and Founder of Gelish MINI Soak off gel polish and Morgan Taylor. "Its served as a great inspiration to create mosaic of the rich tones and vibrant pops of color for a fall collection" according to the official press release.
The 6 new shades comprising the Matadora 2017 Collection include-
Mauve your Feet: a deep almond taupe mauve cream. [mauve nude cream]
All Tango-d Up: a crimson burgundy cream. [deep red cream]
Don't break my Corazon: a red rose cream with slight orange undertones. [orange red cream]
Ole my Way: a deep navy blue cream. in the gel polish, the fine shimmer is incredibly fine, and virtually unidentifiable on the nail. In the nail polish, the shimmer is much more apparent. [navy blue shimmer]
Danced and Sang-ria: a deep dark purple cream. [vampy purple cream]
I'm Drawing a Blanco: a fine silver shimmer with white undertones. took 3 coats to reach full opacity. [white shimmer]
(all shades swatched here are two coats of the Gelish MINI, cured for 30 seconds each in an LED, unless stated otherwise).
I really enjoyed this collection. I find it super wearable and an excellent transition from bright summer colors to a more subdued color palette. I found all of the colors performed well and were pretty consistent, except for I'm Drawing a Blanco, which wasn't quite as pigmented as the other shades, but still beautiful nonetheless. The formula was great to work with, and painted and smoothly, easily, and evenly.
My personal favorites are Danced and Sang-ria and Mauve your Feet.
