Rimmel Pro Matte Top Coat- £4.59 from Boots.
I literally purchased this bad boy earlier today and couldn't wait to show you the effects. I saw the matte finish top coat by American Apparel and wanted to purchase it, but I think it's completely sold through and it was no longer available when I went on their website, so instead I found this cheaper alternative. You use it in exactly the same way as any other top coat and within seconds it turns any glossy/shiny nail varnish into a velvety matte finished one, which is just insane. It's the first time I've tried it, so I've only tried it with this one colour, but I'm excited to experiment. I think it works really well with the black, it would also look hot with some bling such as nail gems or studs added to it for an extra dimension. All in all I'm chuffed with this buy, and for £4.59 you can't really go wrong. I love all these cheap ways to spice up nails, they seem to be coming out thick and fast. Any other recommendations of cheap nail arty type bits?x
