Rimmel ~ Matte Finish Top Coat


After I did my back-to-uni mani at the beginning of the week, I finally caved and bought a matte top coat.  I have never ever liked the idea of matte polish, but really wanted to see if I could create a velvet effect.  I chose Rimmel London's Lycra Pro Matte Finish, which cost me about £4.59.  Here it is over 17's Midnight Sapphire:

I actually really, really like this look.  In future I'll be trying it over polishes with more of a glitter to them.  But yes, thumbs up from a matte sceptic!

  1. I wasn't sure either as I tried the matte black avon polish and it was awful but I have to say i like the matte top coats over certain polishes... this is a really nice idea! xx

  2. It looks so pretty! Definitely let me know how long it lasts for you. I do have a couple of matte topcoats that I got from friends but I haven't tried them yet and I've heard they chip easier than regular polishes. I hope this holds up well for you though, it looks great! xo

  3. Lisa this looks gorgeous! Yay for matte!

  4. This looks really good!


Thank you so much for reading! I love hearing from fellow polish addicts so comments are most appreciated. Just to let you know that I am unwell some of the time but will try my best to reply xx
