Hello. Last week my friend tweeted me a picture of a nail look that she thought i might like and that she also secretly wanted me to do for her. As soon as i saw it i knew i had to get a matte top coat and try to give it a go.
|This image was the one that she showed me which was just taken from Google.|
And this is my take on them...
Now annoyingly it was very tricky to get a decent picture of them and i had to use a flash for the detailing to show up, but doing that it then takes away from the matte look. I don't wanna blow my own trumpet but they look a lot better in reality then how they turned out in the picture. This look is really easy to achieve all you need is a black polish i used Models Own gun grey, a matte top coat mine is by Rimmel and then i used my Models Own nail art pen in black to do the detailing but if you don't have this you could just use a small brush or a tooth pic. And it's really straight forward paint your nails black, then apply your matte top coat and then for the nail art just do a long flick with a couple small flicks and then add a few dots. Probably the easiest nail art look i have done a post on, if it wasn't for the drying time this look would take 5 minutes.
I love the magic of a matte top coat and think i will be putting it on everything, so I'm sorry if you don't like matte looks but you may just see a few more from me over the next few weeks haha.
