I had seen a matte nail varnish on another blog and was intrigued, so when I was in Boots topping up my supplies I thought I would give this 17 Nail Xtras one a go. I bought it as part of the three for two offer with a few other items.
I put one coat on over the top of my OPI red nail varnish to compare it against the gloss finish. When applied it initially looks glossy but it soon turns to a matte finish and dries very quickly. It totally changed the look of the nail colour having a matte finish - I have seen on another blog this being used with nail art & glossy varnish and it works quite well having a contrast (matte base with gloss polka dots look great!)
For me though, I prefer a glossy finish and do not think the matte top coat works for me for everyday nails. What do you think? have you tried one of these before? if you have not but want to give it a try - I am giving this bottle away in my Beauty Giveaway - click the link in the side bar for more info!
