Black On Black....

I recently purchased a couple matte polishes from Avon, one being the matte black. I decided to do a simple french manicure using the matte black as the base and a normal black for the tip, you could easily paint on the tip using a clear varnish, but I didn't have one to hand that was super glossy. Its the first time I have painted my nails with a matte polish and I really like it, I cant believe I left it so long to jump on the matte wagon.

I really love the look of it and in reality it looks ten times better. I think next time I do this I will go for black leopard print instead.

Are any of you loving mattes at the moment?

  1. I absolutely love that combination of blacks! I have a matte purple from Essie but i despise it, it accentuates all the flaws of my nails. I guess i prefer your combination.

  4. I have this on right now, but the opposite way around! As matte chips so easily it isn't as good to have it on the tip.
