I like to wear bold nail polish (when I can get away with it), so it is no surprise that I am excited about this new trend: matte nail polish.
The nail technicians at the nail salons where I get my nails are stingy with the top coat anyway (huge pet peeve) so this trend will makes us both happy.
OPI and Zoya are launching matte nail polish collections in July. OPI claims that this formula is not as long wearing as its traditional formula, I wonder if that is true for the other brands that carry/will carry matte nail polish?
OPI is launching 6 of its most popular shades in the new finish, while the Zoya collection only features 3 shades.
