Chanel Mat Top Coat


This product deserves some love. It is a great top coat that dries mat over any colour. I tried to find the most shiny nail varnish I had and put the mat coat over the top, I opted for Chanel Le Vernis in Peridot (No. 531) and these were the results...



The results are great and almost immediate - it dries really fast and totally transforms the nail. I have been trying it out with other colours as well and think it looks very sophisticated with black. I like the change it gives to the nails, it makes a nice alternative to glossy nails and adds a bit more interest. Its appearance is chalky yet doesn't wash out the colour at all - perfect. There are other brands bringing out mat finish polishes but the beauty of this product is that you can take any colour and transform the look within seconds. It is so simple to apply and looks amazing.

  3. There is a product here in Canada from Joe Fresh which is a matte top coat and is my favourite, and really long wearing. Plus, it's $3.33, which is a bonus! I believe that Essie does one as well!

  4. Very cool. But did you know there's a Rimmel version out there for much cheaper? I have it and absolutely LOVE it.

  7. They are really good. There is a Boots 17 one that is about £3, dries in about 2 seconds.

  8. It's funny, I'm still so weirded out by a mat top coat!! I just feel like a glossy/shiny finish is much more put together. HOWEVER, I really should give it a try..I may end up loving it!

  11. I have been looking for a good matte top coat! All of the brands I have tried so far give a funny uneven finish. Must try!

  14. Essie has a really good matte clear nail polish that I only paid $1 for on sale. It works quickly and looks equally as good as this Chanel option (cheaper too).

  20. I totally love this matte look! Would you say it's worth it to splash out on the Chanel one rather than, say, the Rimmel equivalent? Just wondering whether the difference is, in fact, noticeable?
