ManGlaze- Butt taco

A couple of weeks ago, the matte nail polish brand ManGlaze was having a sale. My super awesome fiance bought some for me! This is my first time trying ManGlaze and I have to say, I'm impressed. I'm not usually a fan of matte polishes because they can be boring and chip easily. Not the case with ManGlaze! 

I had to try Butt Taco first. What the hell is a butt taco? I don't care, it sounds funny. Butt Taco is a bright red-leaning orange with a silver shimmer. The most important thing about ManGlaze polishes are the awesome bottles with amazing label art going all the way around. Check it out-

Color names are all written on the top


For the swatches below, I used the sandwich method to make sure this mani was going to last. And it did! Not a chip in sight for 4 days. I used one coat of Essie Fill the Gap as my base coat, one coat of Butt Taco, one coat of HK Girl top coat, and then topped it off with another coat of Butt Taco. By sandwiching the topcoat in the middle, everything will stick together on your nail much better.

Pros- I was really impressed with this polish. Beautiful matte finish, easy application. I'm in love.
Cons- Um...none. Unless you count the fact that I forgot to add a shiny top coat for pictures so you can see the silver shimmer in all its glory!
Overall- You definitely go buy some ManGlaze right now. Even if you don't like matte polishes, just throw a shiny top coat on there. Gorgeous. Buy it.

You can purchase ManGlaze polishes here, here and here. Don't forget to follow them on Twitter to keep up with sales too!


  1. I absolutely love this color, and the name is hilarious! Great swatches!

  2. The color is gorgeous and loveee the name LOL

  3. Thanks so much for describing the sandwich method! I had not heard of it before, and I rarely wear matte polish because I can't use topcoat :D Now I feel like the possibilities are endless ;] And this color is gorgeous.

    1. You're welcome! From my experience, sandwiching the top coat in the middle works better than using a matte topcoat over the polish too. I think some matte topcoats would mess with the intended look of the color.
