Yet another great idea brought to you by Pinterest! I found photos of matte nail polish online, and I just had to try. I discovered that Essie makes a top coat that will turn any regular nail polish matte… so you can use all of your favorites that you already have at home and give them a matte finish! I loved the idea of doing that rather than trying to buy all new colors in matte, so I gave it a try today.
You might notice that the shade that I used was also featured in my Summer Styles post. I still love it and thought the shimmer would be cool in matte!
Please excuse the fact that I am a really messy manicurist! lol. I really liked it, so I went ahead and did the rest with the matte top coat. I think it looks really cool, but it definitely feels strange to the touch because I’m not used to a matte finish feel!
I thought this was just a really cool new way to try nails. I want to find a pretty burgundy shade to try next, so if you have any recommendations, let me know! Also, please let me know if you have any other fun tips for cool nail ideas!
