The Way to Matte

I know the whole matte look has been a hit in the ‘nail world’ for seasons now, especially when Alexander Wang brought his models out with matte nails in his Fall 2010 Show. I’ve been looking into matte polishes, coats, and I couldn’t seem to find anything that gave me that dark edgy sexy matte look. Until about two weeks ago my mom came home with drugstore nail products. She showed me a couple of new polishes and among those it stood out to me…WET N WILD: MATTE TOP COAT from the Wild Shine collection. I immediately blocked out every word after that and starting plotting my new visit to the nail salon so I could try it out. Soon after that I tried it out with a black polish and I did the whole shiny tip trend. Very cute!!! I gotta say I got lots of comments and compliments on it.

Of course I got anxious and inpatient to try out different colors with the top coat and I kept thinking white…white would look insane. Let’s do that next. So! I did, and I also switched it up to a round tip nail shape. I’m absolutely loving this new look:

I totally think this round tip fits my hand so much better than a regular square shaped nail, it brings out the edge in my personality and even people around me are noticing it, So I’ll be rocking this for a while. I wanna know if any of you have tried this matte look, I wanna see your nails!!! lol. Share your posts and pictures with me <3

p.s. – I styled my white matte nail look with rose gold accessories and it really brings the soft touch back to my look which works when I’m not on my whole ‘fabulous-diva-get-outta-my-way’ swag! adding some texture back into there with my midi’s because we all know WE.MUST.DO.MIDIS. 

It’s basically a hidden rule 😉
