Milani Gems Matiffied!

I just want to remind everyone that I now have a Facebook fan page. You can like it on the right sidebar, that is if you like me! :P

One of the nail trends I never got into was matte polish. There is something about the look and the texture that bothers me. The few matte polishes I own I always add top coat to. It wasn't until I saw this post on Ali's Nail News, that I knew I had to get a matte top coat just for this reason. Glitter with matte top coat is amaizing!

Milani Gems over WnW Black Creme topped with Essie Matte About You



This is amazing! I love the look of this. I still don't care for the texture of my nails mattified, but I'll make a compromise for this look! I think I actually prefer this glitter matte than shiny. :)

Happy Monday! Pin It

  1. I also have never got into the matte polishes, but lately have been getting the urge to try them.  This is an amazing look and a great example of why I need to be more "Matte-open minded". ;)

  2. I really like the way this looks!! I love Matte topcoat over flakies too, they seem to stand out so much more mattified.

  4. This looks awesome! Personally I love matte polishes but I get why others don't like the look. Matte over glitter and matte over flakies certainly looks stunning.

  5. Love this! I don't mind matte polish.. just as long as it's on other people. I've tried this look out before but ended up putting a shiny top coat back over it. ♥

  11. Interesting. I cannot think I would like matte top coat better than a glossy top. Don't you loose some of the refractive index of all the wonderful glitter coat with the matte on it?

  18. Matte has definitely won me over with how it looks wtih glitter.

  19. Haha, I understand. I still am a bit bothered by the matte texture, something about my nails not feeling slick is off putting to me, but I held out with this look.

  20. I have to try flakies matte soon!

  21. I agree, though it wasn't my original idea. Whoever first did this I owe gratitude to!

  22. A little bit, but they still are shiny. It just gives off a different look that I think is cool. I think it brings out the glitter better if everything is shiny the glitter sometimes can get lost.

  23. Boo, I hope you can find it soon. :(

  24. Thanks! I hope you like it too!

    Flakies, like Nubar 2010 or SH Hidden Treasure look amazeballz mattified, too. :D
