If You Like Matte...

So this blog is helping me learn a lot - which is great. I feel a little silly that I have never heard of a product that you could apply over top varnish that would give it that "matte" effect. How brilliant right? Silly Sarah...

Anyhoo - dedicated to Slaminsky - as requested.

£4.50 Rimmel London Pro Matte Top Coat
Mid Range
£10.95 Essie Matte About You 
Pocket Burner (but probably awesome)
£18.25 O.P.I Matte Nail Envy Natural Nail Strength
All available from http://www.asos.com I heard the Number 7 from Boots version is good too but sold out online (that was my first choice - I decided to go with the Rimmel watch this space). 

I found this blog as well quite helpful, great for colour swatches and she's got great nails!


  1. Thanks Sarah! Now following you and have answered your comment x

  2. Hey wonderful - chuffed you're here. I need a pro around!

  4. Nice one Bella - what's your skin tone - I will have a think what would suit you. You being a vintage girl thinking something red hmmmm?

    You've got to try the O.P.I website! I can't rave about it enough.

  5. Thoughtful of you. Hand skin tone is pale white with blue veins. Face - pale white with red veins. Ha!
