Matte nails

Recently I have been going crazy over matte nails, so I picked up the Gosh matte effect top coat a few weeks ago & have been trying it out on top of pretty much every nail polish I own! It's safe to say I have found a favourite combination, and the winner is another newbie and it's O.P.I's 'William tell me about O.P.I'. The dark plum colour is a lighter version of O.P.I's notorious 'Lincoln park after dark' so it still retains its plummy tint even after a few coats. 

As you can see, it doesn't give a completely matte look, because there is a slight bit of shine there, but it's still such a gorgeous effect. The application is really smooth, making it easy to use & it dries surprisingly quickly. I've got to admit, the Matte top coat does seem to make the polishes chip more easily than usual, but you still get a few days of flawless, edgy nails! I love this look for winter & feel like it's such a easy and fun trend to follow. What trends will you be playing around with this winter?
