A manicure that looks wet and shiny is true love to me, but sometimes it’s fun to play with a matte look.
Have you seen glitter polishes with a matte top coat? They look like sea glass and have a whole other mesmerizing effect!
Perhaps you’re interested in trying the look, but you don’t want to invest yet in a full bottle of a matte polish.
This is where the OPI Matte Top Coat comes in.
You can use it over any of your existing nail polishes, and it gives you the mattified look.
If you use it with a nail striper, you could even create neat effects – like matte tiger stripes over a shiny base.
OPI’s PR has a bottle of this heading my way, so I’ll be sure to try it out and give you a full report in a future review post.
Official press release sent to me by PR:
Matte is the New Black!
Redefine Color with New OPI Matte Top Coat
OPI Matte Top Coat instantly transforms glossy nail lacquer to a matte finish when applied over any OPI hue. Matte Top Coat provides sealing protection, without shine and protects nails from chipping, making manicures last longer. With a matte, transparent finish, Matte Top Coat is designed to leave nails velvety smooth and creates a touchable texture for an edgy appearance.
“A matte finish can be worn over any OPI nail lacquer shade and should be applied after the base coat and primary coats of color to give nails a unique look,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder VP & Artistic Director. “Using Matte Top Coat to transform any shade in your collection makes it a more versatile and budget-friendly way to embrace the matte trend. Give your favorite lacquers an update with a new finish without altering the color.”
Matte Top Coat contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde. This product includes OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
OPI Matte Top Coat will be available April 2013, at Professional Salons and Spas across Canada for $10.95 CAN suggested retail.
