RIMMEL MATTE FINISH TOP COAT REVIEW AND LOOK

I was recently on the hunt for a matte top coat. After searching high and low in the beauty shops in Colchester I finally found one. The Rimmel Matte Finish Mattifyng Topcoat was the last one in Superdrug and I couldn't wait to get home at try it.
I used Max Factor's Nail Varnish in Boji as my base colour and then applied two coats of the Matte Finish on top. The clear varnish glides on easily and looks glossy, but quickly turns into a frosted look, and then into a matte finish. I love the effect and how it looks. It gives the colour chosen a soft matte look which looks very sleek and chic but the only bad thing I have to say about this is the texture. It has a rough feel to it that gets on my nerves at times, but then again I am a texture person! The Angelica matte finish varnishes had a gorgeous soft feel on the nails which I much prefer. However I really love the look of this top coat and I cannot wait to use it on more colours! It gives my nails a statement without it being over done. Such a simple and gorgeous look.
This little top coat costs £4.59 from your local Boots or Superdrug. Currently in Boots their Rimmel Lycra polishes are two for £6.

What do you think of this polish?
Do you like matte nails?
I'd love to hear from you and I respond to all comments!
Thanks for reading beautiful!

  3. I love matte nails! I have an ELF matte topcoat which I rally like and it's smooth, but I do find the matte effect kind of wears off after a couple of days - I guess it depends how long you wear nail polish for, it doesn't really affect me as I change my nails pretty often! Might be worth you picking up, it's only a couple of pounds!
