I prepped my nails by filing and buffing and used a nail strengthener as a base coat. I then applied a few different brands of nail polish in various colours to see how the O.P.I Matte Top Coat faired when paired with different brands. I used shades by Catrice and Bourjois and then applied the matte topcoat. I loved the end result :) You can use a cheap nail polish and create an expensive look with the O.P.I. Matte Topcoat :)
I then used two different O.P.I. polishes to create a reverse manicure. I applied 'Barefoot in Barcelona' all over each nail and created a tip using 'Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!' :) I think I need a bit more practice on this one but it's always fun getting creative!
I love the O.P.I. Matte Top Coat! It's a great way to get the matte look without spending money on separate bottles of matte polish as you can use it with any brand of nail polish that you might already have :)
Give it a go ;)
