Press Sample Purchased by Me
Morning Friends! Today I have OPI's Matte Top Coat to share with you. When I saw the press release for this I was really excited because matte top coats always chip so fast and OPI was promising long lasting matte nail colour. I have two looks to share with you today so let's get to it! (My nails are super nubby and even nubbier now so please excuse this :))
Just to first test how matte this would make a polish I grabbed the super vampy OPI Eiffel For This Color and did two easy coats and then applied my OPI Matte Top Coat. This is a deep purple with some awesome shimmer. I was hoping the shimmer would stay even though it was matte, but unfortunately my colour choice fell a little flat. Since I have rounded off my tips due to breakage I thought this might be a fun time to add a glossy french tip!
I used NYC top coat and just the brush from the bottle to quickly swipe on a french tip. It's not perfect, but I enjoy the matte and shiny contrast!
One of my favourite matte looks is matte glitter, so I had to grab OPI Polka.com. I layered it over OPI Did You 'Ear About Van 'Gogh? and then mattified the whole thing. This is love people. Matte glitter is my favourite!
I ended up wearing OPI Polka.com for a few days before the matte top coat chipped at all. It seemed comparable to my NYC Top Coat that I use for my regular shiny manicures. I generally only use Seche Vite when I know I need my nails to last for a few days because I'm poor and like to hoard it lol.
I would recommend OPI's Matte Top Coat if you are looking for something that will give you matte nails without the instant chip. This is available now for $10.95 CAN wherever OPI is sold.
