I ❤ Matte

Wednesday, 16 January 2013
Recently I've been seriously wanting matte nail varnish without having to splurge on every single colour of the rainbow in a matte finish when I already have so much nail varnish.

Of course, Rimmel had the answer to all my problems.

The Professional Matte Finish Mattifying Topcoat is exactly what it says on the tin.
A handy little topcoat as which is usable as an alternative to glossy nail varnish.
I already have 30-40 bottles of nail varnish already, and with just this one bottle a whole array of colours, finishes and designs have become available to me.

As pictured, I've layered the polish over a dark, metallic grey and it is clear that the topcoat adds an element of frostiness to the polish, and there is definitely no gloss and no shine.

On the bottle it says the finish lasts up to 10 days, though I've not yet had the pleasure of experiencing this. With 2 coats, the matte finish lasts me approximately 6 days, and that's with average showering & washing up.

It retails at £4.59 in both Superdrug and Boots.
If you find it any cheaper, lucky you, but either way I think it's worth every penny!

Thanks for reading! :)
