OPI Mattes

It’s the matte wagon and I know y’all are lovin it! I have read the nail blogs and seen the bottle and swatch pics of the OPI mattes but I had to see it all for myself. Nothing is the same until it is gliding over my fingernail.

I went to my favorite online nail haven, Transdesign and snatched up three mattes. I wasn’t interested in the berry or white color because it doesn’t take much to inform me that the white matte resembles white-out and I don’t believe I would pull it off for long (all my jeans would bleed the white into oblivion!), and well the berry just didn’t inspire the awe that the other colors did. 🙂

Click ‘read more’ to check out the swatches. And true to the giveaway, the OPI Matte You Don’t Know Jacques will be on the list of prizes to choose from!

The bottles tell you not to use a base coat, top coat, drying drops or hand lotion. I used lotion post application and nothing changed it, but everything else probably needs to be adhered to. Additionally… these dry almost instantly but wear for the most of two days.

Here’s how they looked on me:

I didn’t swatch Russian Navy yet, but as soon as I do, you’ll be the first to know!

What do you guys think about these? Tired of mattes?

As a sidenote – as many of you heard me whine on Twitter – my beloved phone went for a swim in the sink and didn’t come back alive. A lot of the information and pictures for here were there so be patient as I get myself together with the outside world lol!
