I’ve had the Matte top coat by Essie for such a long time, but I never used because I have been meaning to try this manicure, an idea I got from Pinterest a long time ago, but since it’s dark colours and it was summertime, I wasn’t really feeling it until now! Fall weather draws me to darker and warmer colours.
I used OPI’s ‘Russian Navy’, which is one of my favourite nail colours, but I don’t use it often because it tends to leave my nails blue-ish, even though I use a good base coat. It’s a dark blue with specs of purple – I tried getting the best picture of it as possible. The top coat is from Essie, ‘Matte about you’ – there are many companies that make this top coat now, but I’ve always been an Essie girl.
I LOVED the matte look on my nails. It’s such a different look than the shiny finish that I’m used to! And combined with this OPI colour, it reminds me of dark jeans..! Dark jeans mani anyone?
On a side note, my camera is on the fritter…so I’ve been using my iPhone whenever I can, so bare with me until I can get it fixed or get a replacement. I’ve been wanting to work on my photography skills so if you guys have suggestions of tutorials, leave links in the comments below!
