Here is the second part of the Gothic Moon nails experiment. A Matte top coat transformed the extra glossy manicure into a velvety subtle chic look. As the texture of the manicure changed the whole perception of the look changed. You’re no longer distracted by the gloss so the pattern really stands out and the precise sharp edges become more defined.
See close ups/comparison below.
It seems that matte top coat works best on dark shades. I ran a quick test with white and nude polishes and the result wasn’t as spectacular as on darker polishes. I also noticed that a matte top coat evens out the surface of your manicure in some kind of magical way. It covers your nails so evenly by molding with the polish that your manicure looks almost unnatural (in a good way! it’s just too perfect).
