Mani Monday

Hey all,

So firstly I want to apologise for my lack of post last week. I’ve been so busy with my university assignments that this few weeks have been hectic.

Anyways, I thought I would start this week with a nail related post.

This month I’ve been loving matte nails.

I recently purchased Rimmels Pro Matte Top Coat from Boots for £4.59.

This is what it looks like on my nails.

So far I’ve been experimenting with matte nails and shiny tips, kinda like a French manicure. I will be trying more patterns once I’ve gotten bored with the matte base and shiny tip nails.

The brush given in this nail polish bottle is bigger and harder than the usual brushes, which allows users to apply it more evenly onto your nails and cover more area with just two strokes.

I would used two coats of your red as I think two coats makes the color pop. Once both coats are completely dry you can start applying the matte topcoat! Within seconds, you will notice the matte effect appearing.

It does give a matte finish, however it’s not as matte as I would like it. I have found myself applying more than one coat to each nail in order to achieve a more matte finish.

Besides that, I really liked this nail polish. And would definitely recommend it to my friends and my fellow bloggers!

 

Will you be investing in a matte top coat? or have you already bought a matte top coat? if so, what do you think of it?
