My favorite Matte topcoat!

9:03 AM

Hi everyone! Since my last post I've been loving on my favorite matte topcoat from Opi. If you love matte manicures, then this is the post for you!



Here's Opi mtc over Zoya Chantal from the Naturel Collection. 
Stamping image is from Born Pretty Store BP-30 

This next one is also one of my favorite matte manicures. 
This one is Opis mtc over Morgan Taylor "Berry Perfection" 
This stamping image is also from Born Pretty Store. This one is from plate BP-05



So, why do I love opi matte topcoat the best? Because it dries everything to such a smooth looking finish. In my own experience, some matte top coats leave a more waxy finish, especially over cremes. Sorry if you like the waxy finishes but I'm not much of a fan. When I saw what opi matte did over a creme I was sold. Fabulousness! (Yes I like making up fun new words) I use it over everything from cremes to shimmers and metallics. I can NOT get enough! Matte ALL the manicures!

  2. I really like that berry manicure! I don't have much experience with matte polish myself except for the Zoya Matte Velvets, which I love! I got the China Glaze matte top coat free from Ulta, but I haven't used it yet so I don't know how it performs.

    1. They sure do! If I'm using a matte topcoat I like to use a normal topcoat first for a smooth surface. But when the actual color is matte I definitely try to get it as even as possible.

  10. Loved both manis. I too like matte manis. I bought Essie Matte about you after seeing lot of pretty manis. But it dries too matte for my choice. So my Fav. matte top coat still remains my Mash Matte top coat. Beacuse that dries velvet matte giving satin finish.

  17. I have a W&W matte topcoat and one other brand, I can't remember right off the top of my head. I don't use them as often as I should... I should change that.

  18. I wish I would of had that leaf plate back in November. I did some freehand leaves that looked so terrible. I love how both your manis came out. All aboard the matte train.

  19. That worked great over the stamping, didn't smear it a bit!

  20. These are gorgeous! I need a new bottle of OPI matte top coat. Mine got those little crusties on the neck that left white spots in my manis, and no amount of cleaning the neck or thinner could save it. Sigh.
