OPI: New Matte Top Coat ~ Review

OPI introduces a new top coat that transforms glossy nails to a matte finish.  It creates a fun and unique look without altering the colour.  This makes it more versatile and more economical to embrace the matte nails trend.

The "Matte Top Coat provides sealing protection without shine and protects nails from chipping, making manicures last longer.  with a matte, transparent finish, Matte Top Coat is designed to leave nails velvety smooth and creates a  touchable texture for an edgy appearance."

The matte finished should be applied after the base coat and primary coat.  When I heard about this new top coat I thought it sounded like a neat idea.  I like the matte look but I am not willing to purchase more than a few of the new range.  At first I wasn't sure how it will turn out but ended up very pleased with the end result.  When I first applied it on, I didn't see anything different than a regular top coat but once it dried it turned matte not glossy - like a frosted glass.  I love it and most likely use it often this summer.  I think everyone should purchase this new top coat and try it out for yourself.  I bet you will like it as much as I did.

Matte Top Coat contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde.  It includes OPI's  exclusive ProWide Brush. OPI Matte Top Coat will be available April 2013 at most stores that sells OPI across Canada for suggested retail price of $10.95.
