Copacabana is a gorgeous red-coral colour which dries down to a matte finish. I would say it isn't completely matte however, but has a slight sheen to it which, personally, I do like but if you'd rather have a fully matte finish Barry M has also just released their own matte top coat or you can find matte top coats from most brands now.
Copaabana just screams summer to me which coming from me is a huge compliment considering the huge lack of corals, reds and pinks in my collection. I feel like it looks quite lovely against my pasty skin. For you tanned ladies I can also confirm it looks lovely after acquiring a very pretty burn which then turned into a tan. (I fail at Summer)
Here I have used three coats just to smooth everything out but two was definitely enough. I wore this for about a week with no chips, just the usual tip wear.
My lack of blogging recently makes me so sad. I've got a back log of swatch pictures all ready and waiting in my folders but I've been so slow in getting round to making posts. A few weeks back my Dad took a few weeks holiday from work and my sister came home from Uni permanently so we spent a week just having some family time. We went off to The Deep, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, did some shopping and just generally had a nice week. So naturally I'll have some photography posts coming too over the next few weeks once I actually write up the posts.
Anyways until then...
