Essie Sand Tropez & Matte About You
Konad plate m57

The newest trend in nails seems to be matte. Of course, I cant spend $7 a bottle when I probably only wear is once or twice and the trend is out of season. I made a trip to walmart and picked up Essie Matte About You. Its pretty much a top coat you apply after you are done with your nails. The possibilities with it is endless and for about $8, definitely well worth it. Unlike most matte polishes, you can use a base coat and 2 coats of your polish then the Matte About You. It dries relatively fast  you see the results instantly. i wished i picked this up sooner instead eyeballing all those matte polishes online contemplating which one to buy. Its a bit tacky but the trick to it is to apply it on your nail with only two strokes; it minimizes the streaky look. And also make sure your polish is prefect before apply this because it will point out all those flaws. For today, I wanted something that was muted and feminine.Dont mind my uneven nail size... It ripped off but i couldnt wait till it grew out to try this. Enjoy! :D
