A Shortcut to Mushrooms Nail Polish - matte earthy grey
A Shortcut to Mushrooms is an earthy, taupe-leaning, soft grey matte nail polish. This is a rerelease of a previously discontinued polish!
Inspiration: The Lord of the Rings, by JRR Tolkien. This greige shade mimics the fungi growing in the farmlands around Hobbiton :)
About Matte Nail Polish:
- When the polish looks matte, it's dry! It will still look glossy in the bottle, and while it's wet!
- No top coat needed! If you use one, and it's not a matte top coat, it will make the polish glossy.
