If I have previously said ‘I don’t like matte nails..” *cough cough* I take my words back! After I purchased my Chanel Le Vernis in Pirate and Rose Cache, I went back to the counter and tested the Chanel Mat Top Coat Velvet. Surprisingly it was very nice and did not make my hands look dull as I thought it would. For those of you who enjoy wearing nail polishes, I think the Chanel Mat Top Coat gives a modern spin.
It applies the same as any other top coat – transparent and smooth, and dries into a matte velvety finish. It was quite fun watching my nails changing from glossy to matte.
Although the Chanel SA recommended that it is best to be used with darker colors, I just felt like experimenting with all the various shades. The Chanel Le Vernis shades swatched here:
- Particuliere; Pirate; Vendetta; Blue Boy; Mimosa
Do you like matte nails? And do you think it looks the best on dark colors?
