Models Own Matt Top Coat

24 December 2013

I mentioned the Models Own top coat that turns any nail varnish into matte in my post the other day I think briefly, but after using it quite a few times, I feel like I can now give you a proper review! Well this is kind of a review and kind of a 'Hey look at my nails!' type of post thing.

I started out with just some clear nail varnish and then done two coats of Revlon Vintage in shade 570. A while ago me and my mum brought this pack thing from Costco from Revlon full of 8 if I remember correctly of their 'best selling colours' some of them are quite summery, some are glittery and some are quite bright, good for going out. It is meant to dry very quickly, and it does. When you do the first coat the colour is still quite bold there, I don't know how to phrase this, but really you could just leave it at one coat but I do two to avoid chipping and to just make the colour better. It has lasted me two days, which is good for me since usually nail varnish only lasts me a day since I never wait for them to dry, but since these dry so quickly, that's not really a problem. However it has chipped a little bit but that's probably because I've been doing a lot of fiddly things with my nails recently which has encouraged the chipping. However, when I done it the other day it lasted around three days which I personally think is quite good, well for me anyway!

In the bottle it looks quite pinky and on the nails too in the picture it looks like a red that is quite pinky, but in real life it looks like a dark red.

It's a really nice maroon/burgundy colour which is great for Christmas. It's quite similar to the Barry M matte nail varnish I think, but I personally think this one is better, since it is so quick to dry and it looks great matte or shiny in my opinion.

Then I added the Models Own Matt Top Coat. It looks quite thick in the bottle, but it doesn't feel heavy on your nails at all, you can't feel it all really. You only need a thin layer to get a matte effect, which is really great considering I will probably be using this product a lot!
At first when you put it on it doesn't make a difference, but after it dries your nails instantly go matte, and it only takes a few seconds to dry which is great. It has the same brush as all other Model Own nail polishes, it spreads out easy across your nail and really gets everywhere the first time, so your whole nail is matte.

At first I didn't really think this product would work, but it does and is absolutely amazing! It dries so quickly and the effect lasts until you take it off! If you are thinking of buying a matte nail varnish, I honestly think you should buy this, then you can turn any of your colours matte!


I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A LOVELY CHRISTMAS AND ENJOY SPENDING TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY OR WHATEVER YOU ARE ALL DOING, HOPE YOU HAVE A FABLOUS TIME NO MATTER WHAT AND I SHALL WRITE AGAIN SOON!:D

  2. I wish I'd have bought this one instead of splurging on the O.P.I matte top coat, they basically do the same thing!! I really love the Revlon shade. Have a very good Christmas Libby! xxx
