Matte vs. Shiny Lacquers
Matte polishes have been trending this season. They give a great look to your normally shiny polish. It’s like having 2 polishes for the price of one!
So… as I was recently milling around for a matte top coat without breaking the bank. I was having the hardest time locating something in a local store. I could have ordered something online but of course my impulsive nature prevented that from happening because I wanted it NOW! I almost attempted to make my own by adding cornstarch to one of my dry fast top coats. (As seen on a pinterest)
Then I realized… There must be an easier way.
Voila! I found it!
NYC – Matte me Crazy
Matte Top Coat – Under $2 @ Walmart
First I painted my nail with 2 coats of Essie’s Masquerade Belle. It’s a deep rich red. Waited for that to dry & then applied 1 coat of NYC Matte Top Coat. Voila… my once shiny red had turned matte… and for under $2! A total bargain!
