total matte-ness!


the nail in a fashionista’s designer coffin? why, not experimenting with her nails, of course!
seriously though, every few months the fashion world goes gaga over the latest nail polish shade. (remember chanel’s ‘jade’?) luckily for us, fashion heavyweights are thinking out of the ‘polished to perfection’ box and are starting to experiment with texture!
say hello to beauty’s newest darlings – matte nails! less preppy, more edgy, a matte mani is the chicest beauty accessory to be seen with this season!
true to form and up to trend, opi and zoya impressed with their range, while essie took the cake for creating a matte top coat, ‘matte about you‘ that can turn your favourite shade matte, sans fuss!

if you’re in the mood to diy, head down to the craft store, pick out a pretty shade of poster colour and paint away!

bisou bisou,

note : the poster colour idea is strictly for fun. i haven’t personally tried it and am not responsible for any health hazards that may occur upon trial.
