Avon Nailwear Pro+ Matte Top Coat

Friday, 25 April 2014

So it's no secret that I love a matte lip, nail, face...whatever, as long as it's matte, I'm a big fan! I've been on the hunt for a matte topcoat for a while as, quite frankly, I was majorly disappointed by the selection of matte polishes released by Barry M  a while back. It's not so easy to find matte polishes on the high street so I guessed it was time I took matters into my own hands (geddit?!)

I was flicking through the avon catalogue a few months back, as you do, and came across a very subtly advertised matte top coat. Now, there is absolutely no mention of it being matte on the packaging and it was only in the catalogue itself that the varnish claimed to leave a matte effect. I bought it on a whim and waited 3 years for it to arrive (slight exaggeration but I had actually forgotten about ordering it!) and when it did, I was a very happy bunny.

It's pretty simple really, the topcoat turns any polish matte. Of course, this means that the possibilities are literally endless and it can really change the colour of a polish completely. To put it to the ultimate matte test, I layered it over one of my Barry M gelly high-shine polishes and the result? 100% mattified. It leaves a lovely pearly look on the nail but definitely eliminates all shine, as you can see in the before and after pics. Well done Avon, you've hit the nail on the head with this one! (couldn't resist that one!)

Are you a matte nail fan?


  1. I love these top coats! I think it's the easiest way to make any nail polish look a little different.
