The Digital Dozen does Nail Heroes - Day 4: Matte Top Coat

nothing to disclose 

Okay, Day 4 of Digital Dozen Nail Heroes week is another odd one! Today's hero is a nod to my favorite manicure finisher - MATTE TOP COAT! I'm sure after scrolling through my feed, you might notice I use matte top coat over nail art far more often than I go with a glossy top coat.

Needless to say, I love the look of a matte top coat over nail art. While glossy top coats make the colors pop more than matte, matte really lends itself to showing off the detail work of a design which is why I'm so drawn to it.

So for today, I've done a floral mani in one of my all time favorite color palettes (I mean, orange and teal, so pretty!) and topped it off with my all time favorite top coats! :D

For the nail art, I used a base of Zoya's Willa (love this black!) and then used 6 different craft acrylic paints to do the flower detailing. Love how it turned out :) They were roughly inspired by this Pinterest image I came across.

By far my favorite matte top coat is the OPI Matte Top Coat. I have bought countless bottles of it...and probably need to buy more soon!

So that's Day 4! Do you enjoy a matte top coat? Do you have a favorite brand? Be sure to check out the inlinkz below to see what the other ladies have done for today!

Happy Polishing :)
