For the past few months I have seen the matte polish finishes showing up quite a bit in stores, (a lot of brands make a matte topcoat.) The matte topcoat that I have seen the most is the Sally Hansen Big Matte topcoat. Also, I have recently seen that Sally Hansen Insta- Dri polish now comes in matte. So after a few months of deciding if I wanted to give this matte finish polish a try, (I was unsure if I would like this finish, I really like shinny glitter polishes) I looked around at the store and seen that New York Color also has a matte topcoat, so I picked that brand to try.
Here are the polishes I used:
New York Color- Matte Me Crazy topcoat, L'Oreal- Tangerine Crush, and Milani- Quick Teal.
For this color combination I decided to use two bright summer color polishes to see if it would still give that bright summer look with out the shine.
In the photo above I left my right hand with no matte top coat and shiny (the hand at the bottom), and my left hand with the matte topcoat (the hand at the top) to see the difference between the two.
As you can see the matte topcoat can turn even the shiniest nail polish matte.
Before I tried this matte topcoat I was really unsure if I would like it (like I stated above, I like shinny finishes.) Also I was unsure if the bright nail polishes would still look as vibrant even if they where matted.
After I tried out the New york color- Matte Me Crazy top coat on these bright colors I do really like this topcoat, the topcoat went on really well in 1 coat, their was just a few spots that I had to go over again because their was still some shine to the polish.
I feel that even though the polishes are made to be flattened and dull, your nail polish can still have a bright summer feel with out the shine.
I give this a happy Polish, I really like this topcoat.
I got the New York Color- Matte Me Crazy topcoat at Meijer for just a $1.79.
