If you aren't using Essie's Matte About You top coat by now, you are crazy. This is my favorite beauty purchase in 2012 BY FAR. You paint it over any other fingernail polish and it turns the gloss into a matte finish. Perfection.
Zoya Matte Velvet Lacquer #498 (Loredana). Manufacturer says it's "not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry nail surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear."
11. To make your own matte nail polish, make a little pile of eyeshadow (great idea for the broken shadows we all have lying around!) and mix in a little clear nail polish. No more paying $8 a bottle for the matte stuff!
