5 Ways To Use OPI's Matte Top Coat

Think matte nails are last season? Think again! Shine-free nails are still trending and with myriad looks you can create, the Matte look isn’t going anywhere. Check out 5 easy ways to up your nail game using OPI's Matte Top Coat:

  1. The most classic way to use Matte Top Coat is with a full coverage coat on your chosen color. You’ll get a shine-free, edgy finish, from base to tip.
    Pro tips: Make sure to shake your top coat very well (we recommend a full 60 seconds) and apply in thin even coats. When using GelColor, achieve a “chalky” matte look by lightly buffing the GelColor Matte Top Coat (after it’s cured and wiped clean of course!) with an OPI Flex Green 220/280 Buffer.

  2. Put a spin on your usual French Mani! Apply OPI Matte Top Coat to the tips of your glossy Mani to create a fun Matte tip French look. Or try it in reverse with a Matte nail and glossy French tip created with Top Coat.

  3. Get creative and try using OPI Matte Top Coat to create intricate designs on top of regular lacquer for a subtle, yet fashion-forward look.

  4. Switch it up by applying a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat first, and then drawing your designs with OPI Top Coat for a uniquely textured look.

  5. Love glitter? Try an unconventional take on shine by applying OPI Matte Top Coat over a glitter lacquer. It’s an easy way to add dimension and originality to your designs.

Try one of these five looks, or get creative and do a combo! From a classic  mani with full coverage or a mixture of textures and designs, Matte Top Coat can take your nails to another level. Available in both Nail Lacquer and GelColor, go matte to elevate your look!
