Matte nails: Yay or Nay?

So matte nails are nothing new. They were a really popular trend last summer. With brands like essie, opi etc. all coming out with matte nail polishes. It just never really appealed to me.

So about a month ago I was in boots browsing the Rimmel stand when I spotted a mattifying top coat and decided I would give matte nails a go.

Only actually bothered to dig this out a yesterday and applied this over two coats of Rimmel's lycra pro nail polish in Urban princess. The mattifying top coat is also from Rimmel's lycra pro range which claims to last up to 10 days. But I've read that matte nails tend to chip easy so watch this space :)

Mmm I'm still undecided I guess it depends on the polish you wear underneath. What do you guys think about matte nails?



  1. i like it.. something different! :)

  2. I like the matt finish on nails, it does look really nice with certain nail paints xoxo
