Having always been a strict glossy finish nail polish wearer my whole life, I never thought I would succumb to the matte nail look. But alas, I've been inspired by a fellow beauty blogger to dip into the matte black nail trend.
Michelle from Beauty, Life, Michelle recently posted a mani on her Instagram where she painted her nails with a combination of a black glitter and matte top coat over a black polish. I loved the contrasting textures and finishes and realised I may have been missing out on all the leather-look fun matte top coats were offering.
One of my girlfriends, Lauren, also recently sent me a photo of her matte black mani and it looked amazing. I decided then and there I would need to try this look for myself.
