First attempt at matte nails



Matte nails have been around for some time and whilst it was doing it's rounds on the beauty blogs, I didn't pay much attention. Not until recently have I been lusting after dark matte nails, the lust which was ignited during a flick through my usual monthly glossy. Now, when it comes to matte nails I refuse to have pale matte nails. Pale pretty shades should stay glossy and pretty as opposed to dark nails which being matte I can accept, afterall matte black cars are planted somewhere in my dreamworld.

I opted for this Maybelline shade called em, yea I can't seem to find a name on the damn bottle! but for reference, its a metallic dark blue colour. Topping it off with Rimmel's matte top coat, my desired look was achieved, in which I didn't really love! Initially they looked great but within hours, I wanted to remove them and having said that, it's not the polish's, it's just me. I am a fussy one and this may possibly be the reason why I never took notice of matte nails before! Lesson learned.

Personally my matte nails reminded me of hand cream smothered on my nails, and not rubbed in, me no likey!

  10. I love the color, but I don't understand the hype over matte nails. I bought a bottle to try for myself but didn't like the way it looked on me. I'm old-fashioned, I guess haha and like to have my nails look glossy instead :)

  20. This is a really nice combination... I often think that crackle polishes look quite dated now but this shows that they can still work if you play around with them :)become a makeup artist
