Attention matte nail polish lovers! The coolest matte white nail polish I have ever had the pleasure to try out has been recently released by ManGlaze and it’s called Mayonnaise.
For me a white matte polish can be tricky. I am really not into the chalky or White-Out look on my nails so a lot of time they just don’t work out for me. However this has just the slightest satiny texture and subtle shimmer about it that makes it just perfection in my book.
The bottle doesn’t come in their regular nail polish size, rather a smaller bottle. I’m not sure if they plan on selling a standard size of this in the future. UPDATE: This does come in a full size bottle, mine was just a smaller version.
Compared to most white polishes, it had nowhere near the streakiness I normally experience when applying either. Score!
Mayonnaise is a pretty pure white but it doesn’t have a stark look to it. It’s really quite satiny and feels almost velvety once dried. I applied it over a base coat, as I always do no matter the finish of the polish. As with other matte’s it goes on shiny then dries to a duller finish. This was a little streaky, but as mentioned above not bad at all. There is just a super small hint of shimmer under there but you really don’t see it unless you add a top coat. I love this white, I think it’s probably one of my top 3 favorite white polishes now. This was three coats for a completely even look.
You can see the slight shimmer when you zoom waaaaaay in. It reminds me of tiny snowflakes. 🙂

Adding a top coat just brings out the shimmer but doesn’t take away from the great color. I totally love this either way.
I think this is a really amazing white and I love the texture. It could have gone horribly wrong, but they pulled it off beautifully!
You can find ManGlaze on their site here and the price is $13.13. I do find that high for a mini-bottle and kind of strange that the normal polishes are $6.66 but the mini is twice the price. UPDATE: I was incorrect, the full size bottle is $13.13.
