Revlon Matte Suede Nail Polish 933 Emerald City

I never really jumped on the matte polish trend. A while ago I picked up Revlon's Matte Suede in Emerald City, thinking that it would be nice to try for Christmas, but never used it. Now it is St. Patrick's Day and I'm just now trying it out!
The first coat had pretty good coverage and went on really smoothly.  
If you apply your polish really carefully and with a heavy hand this could be a one coat polish.
I didn't so the photos below are with 2 coats.

I think Emerald City is a good polish to try if you are first trying out the matte trend because it is not really completely matte, but still definitely not glossy.  I like the semi matte finish but I wish I had a matte topcoat I could use to see what this would look like really matte. Has anyone tried that with this polish?

I do really like the color. It is a very blue green, like a spruce green. It will be lovely for Christmas time.

I still want to do something else to it... a flakie? shatter? glitter perhaps?

I decided to add Sephora by OPI's Blasted Gold to my ring fingers.  It was a little tricky. Blasted Gold did not crackle on the matte polish so I did have to add a top coat (to just my ring fingers) before applying the blasted polish. Once I did that it crackled really nicely.

What do you think of the matte trend?

What is you favorite matte polish?

Are you rockin' green this St. Patrick's Day?
