Matte Nails

I know a couple of months ago matte nail polish really took off and isn't such a big thing anymore. However I've recently began liking it a lot more again and after just painting my nails with Barry M's 'Mushroom' and applying my BeautyUK matte top coat I decided to write a quick post about it.
  I think mixing matte and glossy nail polish of the same colour is really interesting and can play up just plain coloured nails. Like shown above a simple way is by using the same colour to do a french manicure but make one part matte and the other glossy. Or could go one step further and do something like tiger print.

 What are your thoughts on matte nails?
Hope you guys enjoyed!
Love, Julie xx


  1. I like matte nails with some glossy tips or design, maybe some glitter or a metallic color. Hmm. I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't like plain matte nails. :P

    1. Haha love matte and glossy polishes mixed just not skilled enough to do it myself! xx

  2. I love matte nails but it's a bit of a struggle to find ones that are any good where I live. And, although this sounds weird, your nail shape is very pretty!


    1. Aww seriously, you should pick up a matte top coat then you can make any polish matte :)
      They're a bit short at the minute but thank you! xx

  3. With the right color, I think matte nails are gorg! Love the mix of matte and shine.
