Revlon Elusive

**all items purchased by me

I felt like doing another nail post today, so I've got a mani that I'm happy with the way it looks in pictures.  In one of my previous posts I mentioned that looking at the mani pictures in my computer waiting to be posted, I wasn't happy with most of them.  But this one I like so I'm sharing it now, even though the polish was limited edition and now either hard to come by or no longer available.

This is 2 coats of Revlon Elusive, no top coat.  I don't remember if/what base coat I used.
Surprisingly, Elusive dried to a matte finish - no indication on the bottle of this.  This pretty matte black polish has teal hex glitters in a couple sizes, and maybe some tiny glitters that lean more blue.  It did dry with some lumps and bumps but nothing annoying enough to want me to layer on topcoat to smooth it out.  Most likely when I was applying, I let the first layer dry completely before going on to the second layer.  I don't think this had the best wear time, but this was before I started using Orly Bonder which has helped many of my polishes hold on to my temperamental nails much better.
I believe this was a limited edition shade that came out in the Evening Opulence Collection from Fall 2013.  But when I put it into Google to get the collection name, in shopping results this is showing up on (as well as eBay).  For swatches of all the collection (there's also a couple of dupes in it!), check out Frazzle and Aniploish's post.  Now I need to go find some warm tea since it's snowing tonight - yes, at the end of March we have snow coming down.

Did you pick up Elusive when it was available in stores?  Would you wear it matte or add a shiny topcoat?
