Matte About You!

I love a good manicure. Who doesn’t? I knew as soon as I heard of Essie’s “Matte About You” that I would need to try it. I like that it has a unique finish that leaves room for imperfection. This manicure can be done quickly and there is no worry of “smudging” the look.

I applied 2 coats of OPI nail polish in Lincoln Park After Dark. I let that dry for about 5 minutes and applied 1 layer of Essie’s “Matte About You”. It dried instantly and my nails feel really hard/strong. The finish is amazing! So smooth!

Here is a picture of my finished look.

As you can see, the polish dries well and looks very chic. I like that the polish does not budge when you touch things, even after a few minutes. This is great for when you are in a hurry!
I found some other pictures of inspiration on Pinterest that I thought were cute for matte nails. Perhaps I’ll give one of these a try in the near future!

Also, found some more inspiration for nails that includes a little glitter!
How cute are these “marble” nails. Apply a coat of glitter between color coats. 
And last, a tried and true favorite. Light pink with gold glitter.
What do you think about Matte polish? Have you tried it? What other trends are you trying on your nails?
