Chalkboard Valentines Day Nail Art – NOTD

Chalkboard Valentines Day Nail Art – Valentines Day Nail Art Take 2

I’ve been loving seeing everybodys matte nail designs going about but couldn’t think of a design to make with it. I think over black the effect looks like a chalkboard so here are some valentines designs!

Matte top coats are great, rather than buying a range of matte polishes you can use this to make any colour you want matte. It gives a really nice frosted effect rather than glossy. In the UK there used to be really cheap matte top coats at Boots 17 and Rimmel but they can’t be found anywhere :( I looked in Boots and there is a No 7 Matte Top Coat polish available in some of the larger branches. The matte top coat I used is the Bourjois So Perfect Matte Top Coat that can be found at Superdrug and won’t break the bank compared to other matte top coats.

For this effect I applied one coat of Nails Inc Black Taxi Patent Black Nail Polish 10 ml.  I did the detail and characters using the Rio Professional Pastel Nail Art Kit. To finish I applied 2 coats of the Bourjois So Perfect Matte Top Coat.

Have you tried Matte Top Coat Polish?

    I love this idea! I have never tried a matte top coat polish! To be honest I don’t do much with my nails. I have to be the worst at applying nail polish!

      I really like the matte top coats, you can create pretty cool effects contrasting the gloss and matte :)

    Never tried this myself, but these look good. I would need to get some matte nail polish first though, so I’d have to pass on this account… :( But you guys did a good job!

        Going the ebay way… not in a country with Superdrug :(

          Where are you based? No 7, NYX, OPI and Bourjois are brands that sell them. Let me know how you go with Ebay, I’ve been looking at the cheap £2 ones wondering if they are just as good x
