Mash – Matte Coat over tribal nail art

Remember the stamping plates and the nail art pens I’ve showed you from Mash? Well, I’ve also got a bottle of Matte top coat in the same package. A mattifying top coat gives you endless options of changing all kinds of manicures. My choice was a tribal nail art that I’ve done for a couple of days ago.

Let’s start with the tribal nail art. For the base I’ve used the beautiful jelly Depend 135. This polish has such a dusty shade! I’ve been wearing this a couple of times before both in nail art and by itself and loved it! For the tribal I’ve used Essie – Butler Please and IsaDora – Creme de la Creme.

Then I applied one coat of the matte top coat and this is how the manicure looked mattified. I must say I loved the result!

    I rarely prefer the matte version of a manicure, but this time, I actually think it looks best! The tribal nail art pops more with the matte top coat, in my opinion :)

    Hi Ina, I love to mattify my manis to achieve a different look – especially with glitters!!! I like both of the above versions – and as always your nailart skills are stunning – beuatiful :-)

    Designen är jättefin! Jag tänker dock vara tråkig och säga att jag nog gillar den blanka varianten mer…

    Jag älskar matta topplack, tycker det ger en så snygg finish. Det du gjorde är så läckert. :-)

    I don’t usually use matte top coat, but I still love the look of it! I should start to use it more often :D
    These look so good!!

    Det blev lite terracotta känsla över det. Medelhav liksom. Gillar det.

    Älskar matta topplack:)
    Nailarten med matt lack ser mer autentisk ut på något sätt, mer äkta och gammal:)

    I really like this!! With the matte top coat, it makes it look like artwork on a canvas.

    Great tribal! I really like the way it looks with the matte coat!

    I’m not a matte fan simply because the second you put lotion on, the matte is gone! Plus I’m a shiny lover can’t get enough Shiney! I do love this mani, and your nails are divine!
