NOTW: Matte~n~Glitter

Aloha!

Hope everyone's getting into the swing of the new week.

I bought some new nail polish this weekend and I was excited to feature them on here. This week I'm using one of the polishes from LA Girl's Matte collection. Matte nail polishes have been around for a while but I never really fancied them until recently. You see I like my manicures all nice, shiny and glossy so I thought buying a matte nail polish would defeat the whole purpose. But I must say, they have their own appeal as I've come to realise. Since the polish is matte, I decided to contrast it by applying glitter polish to my tips.

Here are the polishes I used:

Model's Own 3in1(Base Coat), La Girl Matte in Matte Black, Kleancolour in Black Out 

I prepped my nails as per usual and then applied a base coat. Following that I applied two coats of the matte black nail polish. I then applied the glitter polish to the tips of my nails in a french manicure style. A useful tip for applying glitter polish is to dab it onto the nail instead of swiping it like you usually would. The glitter applies neater, in this way.

I applied no topcoat since I was going for the matte look with this one.










So what do you guys think? Will you be getting on the matte polish bandwagon?

Peace and Love,

Y.
