m is for matte

IMG_2286
Having spotted matte nails all over the blogosphere, I was very intrigued to try out the trend when I spotted Rimmel's Pro Matte Finish in Boots the other day. The colour I'm wearing in the photo is one coat of Topshop's Big Smoke with one coat of the Matte Finish on top. And I have to say I was very impressed by how well it stayed on. I've found although I love the colours, the Topshop nail polishes chip very easily without a topcoat. However, when the Matte Finish is applied as a topcoat, it makes the polish a lot more chip resistant. Good for serial nail-chippers/biters like me!

Yesterday I was having one of those days where nothing seemed to be going right, so after spending an hour and a half at ballet, I decided the best thing that I could have for my dinner was pick & mix. Go figure.
