Matte Perfection

I have never been a fan of glossy, high shine nail polish. I like a more subdued look and lucky for me the makeup industry has taken notice. This month OPI launched their matte collection consisting of 6 shades that are sure to excite your senses. Following their lead, Essie will introduce their "Matte About You" matte finisher in August. This brush-on product will replace the usual top coat and essentially give any polish a flat, matte look. It will be priced at $10 and an affordable way to spice up any of your current nail shades, without completely going over to the matte side. Knock Out Cosmetics is another brand that has a nice matte collection of polishes. Their "Flatte" collection includes 9 shades that are matte perfection. Slight sidebar, but something nice about this company is that they're certified "cruelty-free". I know a lot of people not only care about the quality of their product but the path it took to getting in their hands. Matte polishes reflect light differently ands how depth. They're set to be the big thing this fall and I hope all the other nail fanatics out there will join me in being a few months ahead of the trend.
