NOTW: Matte~n~Glitter


Hope everyone’s getting into the swing of the new week.

I bought some new nail polish this weekend and I was excited to feature them on here. This week I’m using one of the polishes from LA Girl’s Matte collection. Matte nail polishes have been around for a while but I never really fancied them until recently. You see I like my manicures all nice, shiny and glossy so I thought buying a matte nail polish would defeat the whole purpose. But I must say, they have their own appeal as I’ve come to realise. Since the polish is matte, I decided to contrast it by applying glitter polish to my tips.

Here are the polishes I used:

Model’s Own 3in1(Base Coat), La Girl Matte in Matte Black, Kleancolour in Black Out 

I prepped my nails as per usual and then applied a base coat. Following that I applied two coats of the matte black nail polish. I then applied the glitter polish to the tips of my nails in a french manicure style. A useful tip for applying glitter polish is to dab it onto the nail instead of swiping it like you usually would. The glitter applies neater, in this way.

I applied no topcoat since I was going for the matte look with this one.

So what do you guys think? Will you be getting on the matte polish bandwagon?

Peace and Love,

      Haha..I feel you..The matte top coats are more versatile than the actually polishes. On the hunt for a great one. Thanks for following and I'm heading over to yours..xx
