I have been OBSESSED with matte nails for a while now. I know I could’ve bought the polishes online but I wanted to wait until I visited the US, to avoid any P&P/custom charges.
I got so excited about buying some from Duane Reade that I also bought nail polish remover and put it on as soon as I got back to the hotel.
For the rest of the holiday I wore O.P.I Lincoln Park after Dark Matte, which was around $8 from Duane Reade
It’s a dark, black cherry colour, but mostly just looks black. I adore the matte finish, I think it’s really unusual but like most things, there is a downside.
Matte nail polish is chip CITY. Mine started chipping within hours of wearing it, and I noticed that after a while, the matte effect wore off and the nails became shiny again. The upside is that the polish dries so quickly, that it doesn’t take long to touch up any chipping at all. You can literally see the polish drying and turn from shiny to matte.
I also got Metro Chic Matte from Sephora, which I have on at the moment. Again, love the finish, I just think the colour is a little dull for me.
What do you think? Have you tried Mattes yet? What’s your favourite colour?
