Matte Nails + 1 Shiney - OPI & Lippmann Polishes

Back to darks! I love Fall/Winter dark nailpolishes. While they can be messy to apply, they make my tips look HAWT! This season, matte is back! Make up & nail polish included. I wanted to give it a try & see what it would be like to have some murdered out nails. Bring it!

I picked up the Lippmann Party Like A Rockstar gift set last Christmas and just bought Sephora for O.P.I.'s What's A Tire Jack, a black matte nail laquer.

Sephora for O.P.I. What's A Tire Jack?

Lippmann Collection - Party Like A Rockstar. L-R Good Girl Gone Bad, Devil In A Blue Dress &Addicted To Speed Topcoat.

I used Good Girl Gone Bad for my left ring fingernail. Odd one out...always.

And here's the result. I saw that Kim K. had done her nails in a matte black and had the tips painted with a topcoat, french manicure style.

Good Girl Gone Bad with Addicted To Speed Topcoat wears very well! I applied Zoya's Anchor Basecoat as well & so far no chips! Now for the downfall of What's A Tire Jack? It chips EASILY. Even with topcoat on my tips. :\ One day of wear and a couple of fingertips are already chipped. I'm going to have to make sure to wrap the topcoat under my nails better which might help with the wear. Other than that...I LOVE THE MATTE LOOK! It really looks like rubber on my fingertips. Hotness! Like I said before, no more acrylic nails for me. The raggedness is still growing out! From now on, its all me!
