BEAUTY | Matte Nails, A Top Coat

Photobucket

'Matte About You' is a topcoat by nail polish brand Essie. The best thing about it is not that it makes your manicure last longer but that it makes your shiny nailpolishes matte! I used it on a very pale light grey color, with the mattifying topcoat they look like they are made out of cement and feel like a chalkboard. Many brands carry a topcoat with a matte finish. Also, check the men's beauty department for transparent matte nailpolishes.

I'm a sucker for any of Essie's nail lacquer. The Matte About You topcoat is another good reason for that addiction!

Wat een unieke ring. Is het één ring of zijn het er meerdere? Bijzonder effect, zo'n matglans. Maakt het subtieler en stijlvoller. Wat een mooi, modieus en 'edgy' fashion blog heb je. Ben jij dat op de foto's? Hoe doe je dat? Zelfontspanner?

Groet,
This Good Life

Mooi!
Die ring is ook erg mooi, mag ik vragen via welke verkoper je die hebt gevonden/gekocht?
Zoek namelijk zelf ook zo'n paar.
