Glitter + Matte = Confetti

So lately, I have been adding my Hard Candy Matte Top Coat on top of every single polish I own. I have tried it over cream finishes (nice), duo chrome finishes (really cool), white polishes (don't recommend it unless your going for that white-out look) & my favorite would probably be glitter polishes. I was inspired to buy it from all of my favorite nail bloggers. They always use glitter underneath a top coat and it always looks so freaking cool. It looks like confetti. It still has a little bit of a shine to it, but you can see the colors in the glitter more vibrantly as opposed to seeing the sparkle. I have had people ask me "how did you do that?!" Of course I will always love my glitter polishes with a normal top coat, but if your like me and you have lots of different nail polishes with limited amount of finishes (cream, duo chrome, cream w/flex of glitter, and glitter) the matte top coat is really a fun way to mix it up. And by the way, my nails aren't in the best shape, but I just had to share this!



The glitter is called Rockstar Pink and it has bright pink glitter, with purple glitter, blue glitters with some golden glitters it looks like. You can see for yourself:

I have tried the matte top coat over every single glitter I own. The one's the matte top coat look the best over is the glitter with at least 2-3 different colors in it, and the glitter with the tiny glitters as opposed to some tiny glitters and some chunky glitter. Like I mentioned, it just looks like confetti that way. Either way, the matte top coat looks great over any glitter polish for something different. If your not into the matte polishes, this would be a great way to try to get into it because it's not a matte finish per say. More of a confetti finish. using it with cream polishes is so-so but it brings the glitter polishes to a whole new level! Im in love!

Do you guys like the matte polish trend?
Whats your favorite way to use a matte top coat?

thank you for reading!
all the best,
Erica
