Shaka Green Forest Matt + comparison

Hi everyone!

Today I am showing you my latest nail polish purchase, done in a popular Italian drugstore. Shaka Green Forest Matt called my name and came home with me while I was shopping around. As the name suggests it’s a forest green nail polish that actually dries satin, not completely matte. Application is easy although I am no fan of Shaka’s flat brushes. It dries super fast though so you gotta be quick applying it.

Photos: two coats, no top coat.

Did Zoya Verushka come to your mind looking at Shaka Green Forest Matt? I immediately thought of it and threw together a quick comparison. No dupes, unfortunately for my Italian readers! Base colour is the same but the Shaka is way more opaque than the Zoya.

What do you think of Shaka Green Forest Matt? Too dark for Spring?

  1. Un colore splendido... anche se forse accanto al suo fratello maggiore sfigura un pò.
    Secondo me è adattissimo anche alla primavera, basta vivacizzarlo con uno stamping floreale ^_^

  3. Do dark for spring yes, but for the other side of the world it's the perfect colour for Autumn!

  4. I love matte polishes! I knew right away though that the zoya has way more shimmer.

    1. Io vado un po' col tempo, i colori scuri d'estate li metto poco! E nemmeno in primavera a meno che non ci sia brutto tempo :P
