OPI supplied me with the OPI Matte Top Coat for this post.
I consider myself to be a creative person. I’ve long been a creative artist – I have been painting on canvas since I was 8 years old, and had my own jewelry shop for a while, too. When it comes to my hair and nails, though, I lack imagination. I look on Pinterest, I see all kinds of great ideas for putting together unique nail polish looks, but do I actually attempt to follow the examples myself? I think you know the answer to that question.
So, despite now owning almost 20 shades of nail polish, I more or less just put nail polish on my nails and call it a day. I used to get more creative with my DIY manicures when I was in high school, but then, I did have a lot more time to spend on such things.
When looking for a quick way to change a nail polish look, I tried out OPI Matte Top Coat. I usually just leave my nail polish shiny, using a clear top coat. But matte? I had no idea what to expect. The Matte Top Coat went on smoothly and dried almost instantly.
Before and after
I think I’ll definitely be trying out some different patterns with this top coat – wouldn’t it be cool to combine a clear and a matte top coat in stripes, perhaps?
Do you use a top coat when you use nail polish? Do you just use a clear top coat, or have you ever tried a matte top coat?
I received the OPI Matte Top Coat in order to write this feature. It was fun trying out something new when it came to a DIY manicure.
