Matte About You
I’d heard a lot about matte top coats for nails, but was never able to find any in stores when I was looking. So I was recently placing an online order at nailpolishcanada.com and needed to spend a couple more dollars to get free shipping. I decided that it would be a great time to finally get a matte top coat.
I opted for Essie’s Matte About You which states:
“Instantly transforms nail color from high gloss to matte in seconds. Use with any shade from light sheer to dark creme to create a smooth matte finish.”
I found that it does just that!
I wasn’t overly in love with my fall mani of green and brown, but after I applied the matte top coat it really came together. With such earthy tones, the shine seemed out of place. But with the matte finish, it was like a whole new manicure – AND I LOVED IT!
Simply apply this finisher like a top coat over your nail polish and viola!
Take a close look at the difference:
There is a huge difference with the amount of light reflected. This matte top coat completely changes the look. Other brands do offer matte top coats as well, so take a peek for it next time at your local drugstore/beauty supply store!
Note: In case you are wondering…if you don’t like the matte top coat and want your nails shiny again, simply put a normal top coat on and it will be like it never happened. (I had to try because I was curious!)
How do you feel about the matte look for nails?
