Day 1 - Matte is Murder by Manglaze

I'm so excited that today is Day 1 from my Mission 1001 Nail Polishes in 1001 Days!! I get to start this insane journey where I challenge myself to try 1001 different nail polishes in 1001 days, a different nail color every single day, and blog about it. I stole the idea from Mission 101, but since 101 nail polishes seemed to easy and too short I modified it. Is it going to be hard? Absolutely! Not to mention challenging on the mind (too keep going with it), body (to not see bare nails in 1001 days!) and wallet (gosh it will be expensive). However I love nail polish enough so I figured why not? 

Now I've had this idea in my head for a while. When I first thought it up I had under 50 nail polishes in my collection. I started looking out for sales and deals and have slowly stocked up. I can tell you this, I definitely do not have all 1001, I don't even have half, but it's slowly getting there.

I've gone and calculated my end date. If I start today, Friday the 13th, 2010, my end date will be Friday, May 10th, 2013. Wow, that just seems so far away. So much will happen from now until then. I'll be 28 by then. I'll be married by the end of it. I may even have bought a house or paid off my car loan. I hope that I will have traveled to a few more countries by then. I can just imagine everything that will happen, and all through it I will blog every single day with a new manicure.

To start here is the last time you and I will see my bare nails for a few years:

And for today's nails, Day 1. I chose to start off with a polish that I have been absolutely dying to try. Manglaze's Matte is Murder. 

Without flash.
With flash.

I just adore this color. Don't let the sheen in the two pictures with flash fool you because this color is pure black matte with absolutely no shine. It ooze's with rock star sex appeal. I can easily see why men would wear it but I surely will too. It wears off a little quicker than normal polish since I'm not tarnishing it with a shiny top coat but to me that adds even more to it's appeal. It fades in a very tortured-artist-can't-be-bothered-to-touch-up kind of way. LOVE IT!
