Matte Nail Polish
September 25, 2009 by USA Post
Matte Nail Polish, I have never been much of a fashion victim, and I’ve never been very interested in what colors are all the rage. But when it comes to nail varnish I just can’t resist. However, there are so many different looks – all being en vogue at the same time – which makes it easy to pick out the colors or looks you will love. Here are my top 5 looks for this fall:
Green – Green, in all shades, is one of the big hits this fall. And it’s gorgeous! Chanel has created a beautiful mint green called Jade. Nubar has launched a whole collection of different greens from medium green to holo called, well, Going Green. You can find a review of the complete collection on All Lacquered Up. And don’t forget, Zoya made a blackened green called Envy from the Truth & Dare collection.
Berry – This color is neither red nor pink. It’s a mixture of both. Thinking of fall, berries are one of the first associations that come to my mind. The color is such an eye-catcher that looks great with black clothes. OPI and Misa created the same cool toned shade, OPI named their berry color Manicurist of Seville and Misa’s is That’s my Little Secret. Misa also made a warm berry called Today is my Birthday, both are from the I’m only Human collection. And Zoya brought Vanessa from the Truth & Dare collection
Purple – I just love purple, and I’m happy it happens to be one of the fashion colors this fall. Color Club created a stunning deep purple holo called Wild at Heart which was the eponym of the collection. China Glazes, Retro Diva collection, contains 2 purple shimmers, one dark called Let’s Groove and a more reddish warm called Stella. Zoya brought the medium purple creme Demi and OPI created Pamplona Purple in their Coleccion de Espana. But my favorite fall purple is Misa’s Sorry, just can’t help it from the I’m only Human collection. It’s the perfect creme purple and it matches most of my purple shirts.
Almost Black – Almost blacks are really cool. You have to look twice to catch the true color, mostly a blue, teal or green undertones. MAC launched a limited edition of polishes created by the top nail-artist Jin Soon, one of them called Beyond Jealous and Sephora by OPI created Dark Room, are both very similar with a blueish smokey green. OPI’s Spain collection contains three shades, a dark fir-green called Here Today… Aragon Tomorrow, an almost black eggplant colored called Give me Moor! and a dark smokey blue called Suzi Skis the Pyrenees, which I am wearing in the picture.
Matte – The matte look is the ultimate fall nail polish look for this year. There are just too many shades to name them all. They were released in all kinds of colors with some cremes and some shimmering. Here is a list of some of the many stunning matte finishes to choose from; OPI’s Matte or Suede collection, Zoya’a MatteVelvet Fall and Winter collection, Nubar’s Modern Matte collection, Orly’s Matte Couture collection, OPI’s Matte Nail Color collection or Color Club’s Dark Romance Matte collection. To see the different swatches take a look at Scrangie.com. Another way to get the matte look is using a matte finishing topcoat, like Essie Matte about you, to create the look with any nail lacquer you already have. You can create cool effects on glitter or shimmer polishes. In the picture I’m wearing matte about you over China Glaze Lubu Heels, a black with tons of red glimmer.
Special Halloween Look – If you are a polish addict, like me, you use every special occasion to create a new look for your nails. The most typical colors for Halloween are black and orange . On the picture I used these colors and stamped the ring-finger with Konad Disc M13.
