The Matte Nail - La Belle Sirene

The Matte Nail

Friday, June 13, 2014



I recently picked up the Revlon Matte Topcoat - a million years after it hit the market of course - and I LOVE it. At first, I was really unsure about a matte nail because I am a true cream girl at heart, so I put off buying into the trend for the longest time. Now that I have jumped on the bandwagon, I cannot stop using it.

The Matte texture is not as overwhelming as I though it would be but just adds a little something that makes any shade of polish so much more chic and elegant. It can turn an overly shiny polish into something wearable and the formula is a dream. It dries in seconds and lasts for days - I'm talking a full week here. 

How do you spice up your nails? Are you a matte lover?

  1. Love this colour! Although I do prefer glossy to matte unless it's black!

  4. I love matte topcoats, especially over beiges (like yours) or greys. I only discovered it fairly recently when I got a Nails Inc one (it was in a duo and I only got it for the glossy topcoat at first) but now I love it.

    I think I did a post featuring my matte topcoat over on my blog http://lovesandloathes.wordpress.com

  7. I'm glad you finally got on board! I love matte polishes, they are my favourite now. But there was a time when I really didn't like them, I thought they looked waxy :/
