Matte nails are back for Fall and I am super glad! I actually never jumped on the matte train back when it first became popular, mostly because I didn’t want to buy new state-of-the-art matte polishes. BUT I just discovered this little beauty: Hard Candy Just Nails Nail Color in Mattely In Love. It will mattify any nail polish you already own. The polish I used for this picture was Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in 200 Stormy Night.
Here you can see the difference between the normal effect of the nail polish (left), and the mattified version (right).
Mattely In Love applies evenly and dries quickly. In fact, I had accidentally applied a little too much of the Stormy Night polish on one of my fingers, and was sure it would smudge and be goopy. When I applied Mattely In Love over it, however, it locked the polish into place! It’s been a couple days and I’m still chip free (which is actually pretty good for me since I type all day). You don’t want to put a normal top coat over this, or you’ll lose the matte effect.
The best part is, it’s only $4! Probably the cheapest bandwagon I’ve jumped on lately, since I can use all my favorite colors and give my manis a fall makeover!
