For this Monday’s Manicure, I’m doing something different. I tried out China Glaze’s (@ChinaGlaze on Twitter) Atlantis nail polish, a glitter aqua shade. What I did a bit differently was add the Magic Matte Top Coat by China Glaze on top. I’ve been waiting a while to get the top coat and it finally came in stock in a little bottle at my local Sally Beauty Supply Store.
I should’ve taken a before picture because Atlantis is a glittery and sparkly shade of aqua. Very bright and bold, but the moment I put on the matte top coat it totally transformed into a new look. The matte top coat made the glitter look like frozen bits of glass under a veil of deep aqua. It was pretty cool and despite how quickly matte polishes chip, the matte top coat didn’t chip as fast as the matte polish did. I’m inclined to buy matte top coats instead of matte polishes because I can turn any color I already have into a matte instead of having to buy a new manicure wardrobe.
So what do you think about the matte? Do you like it? Thoughts?
