Quick Post on O*P*I Matte Polish

Friday, November 6, 2009

Hi everyone...I just needed to do my nails pretty quickly, so I decided to try the O*P*I Matte polish plain.  I think the thing about matte polish is that you either love it or hate it.  My mom obviously hates it...and a lot of women prefer a shiny finish.

I actually really like the matte finish.  It's pretty unique and I think people look and try to figure out what you're wearing on your nails.  The only problem I have with this polish is that it chips REALLY easily.  My right (dominant) pointer finger's polish did not even last 15 hours.  I had this HUGE chip where most of the nail bed's polish was gone, and I only had a little on the tip and moon area.  I have no idea what I could've hit or scraped against (I work in an office dammit!).

I guess the main reason that this polish chips easily is because you can't wear a top coat with it (well, theoretically you could...but then that defeats the purpose of a matte polish unless your top coat was also matte).  So yeah...  Just some quick thoughts!
