It's official, i love matte nail polish. I wasn't convinced until i accidentally picked up this little pink beauty from Topshop that i actually realised it might be the best type of nail polish to ever exist. Before this, matte nail polish always used to remind me of blackboard texture and then that reminded me of people running nails down blackboards. I figured if i caught my nail on the polish, it would make that god awful noise and i would cry in public and people would be scared.
Since picking up this little beauty, arriving home, throwing a tantrum because it wasn't what i thought i had picked up and actually trying it, i've come to love matte nail polish.
Sometimes, a shiny polish is not what you need. Matte nail polish makes my nails feel that bit more sophisticated, something which polish with a shine just can't do with some outfits. This matte pink in the shade 'Sixteen Candles' is perfect for day or night. It's like a nude pink but the matte texture just makes it that bit more subtle.
I can't wait to try out more colours in the matte range, I've got my eye on a nice pastel yellow for the summer (or lets face it, the slow dive into winter). I love pastel colours and i think pastel + matte is a great combination.
Have you got a favourite matte polish?
