I've had the No7 Matte topcoat for quite a while (I think it came out sometime last summer?) and I really like it; it creates an even matte effect in one coat, and it dries super-fast. It does make nail polish chip a lot faster than other top coats, but I've heard that all matte coats do this. Most brands have a matte top coat nowadays- e.l.f. has one for £1.50. But I can't find the No7 one on the Boots website, I hope they haven't discontinued it (especially as Boots have £5 off No7 vouchers again.
Anyway, onto the pictures. I persuaded my sister to use the matte top coat, and we both decided that a simple, non-shimmery polish would be best to show off the effect- No7 Minty Fresh was an obvious choice (she hadn't tried it out herself yet) and I think pastely colours look particularly lovely mattified.

What do you think of matte nails? Are you a fan of the trend?
