MATTE LEOPARD NAILS AND HALFMOON MANICURE

Okay so I am OBSESSED with this new matte top coat I just purchased at ULTA. These are some matte leopard nails mixed in with a half moon manicure:

Products I used:
  • Base nude color is OPI's "Don't Pretzel My Buttons"
  • Leopard spots are OPI's "San Tan-Tonio"
  • Black is OPI's "Black Onyx"
  • Seche Vite Top Coat
  • Calvin Klein "One" Matte Top Coat
  • Black Acrylic Paint
I had run out of my Essie's "Matte About You" which I purchased a year ago (it lasted me that long) and every time I've gone to ULTA they've been sold out. The girl working there recommended Calvin Klein's "One" Matte Top Coat and I am so glad she did. It was a little pricey ($14) but nail polish wise probably the best $14 I've spent. It has a thick square brush which makes it come out even and the matte finish is PERFECT. I got the last one and I don't know why there hasn't been a bigger hype about it. The bottle looks like this:



It comes in a black box and it's in the makeup section at ULTA. If this is out of your price range then Essie's "Matte About You" will do the job for $8. ULTA has been sold out every time I've gone but you can order it off amazon. As for other top coats I haven't tried any other matte top coats so I wouldn't be able to say which other ones I'd recommend.

If you have any questions leave me a comment or email me :) Here's a tutorial if you would like to achieve this look:
