Matte For Fall

I've been so busy lately that I haven't had the time to go spoil myself with any shopping. I recently went to the mall to stock up on my skincare items. While I was passing by Sephora I decided to stop by and see if they had matte laquers that I've been interested in purchasing. Love it or hate it, matte nails are the big trend for Fall. With all the matte nail polish collections coming out, it will be a hard style to ignore. I asked the girl if they had any in stock or ones that I could try but she said they did not. She did show me the Sephora by O.P.I Matte Topcoat. If you're on a budget try a matte coat instead. Using them to mattify any polish in your polish collection makes it more versatile and budget friendly. Give it a try and update with a new matte finish. From flat to satin there are many choices in the non-glossy top coat laquers and I’ll name a few other alternatives.

On the negative side there are certain things you give up in using a matte top coat.

1.These are not fast drying products so you have to be willing to put in the time to get the finished look. 2.The more matte the top coat, the more unforgiving it is. 
3. Matte top coats absorb oil and water as you go about your daily routine so the finish will become more satin over time.

Here are some of the alternatives I didn't use:

I can't help but be inspired by these colors and contrasting textures. I hope I've inspired you to change it up this Fall to try the matte trend...
