Revlon Matte Top Coat Nail Polish

I think this is my first nail polish post, and it is going to be about Revlon's Matte topcoat! (790)

今回は初ネイルカラー・レビューです!
レブロン(Revlon)のマット・トップコート(790)。


I picked this up randomly a couple days ago and I fell in love when I painted my nails. I had never tried the matte nail polish look so I had no idea what to expect....but now that I've tried it though....I just wish I tried it out sooner!! I love glossy looking nails but matte gives a completely different look to the color and it makes the color "softer" (if that makes sense).  
This also makes your nails so smooth :)

これを買ったのは何日か前だったけど、塗ったとたんにマットなネイルの感じにはまりました。
テカテカしたビニールっぽい仕上がりも好きだけど、マットな感じが新しくて全体的に爪の色を一回り落ち着いた感じにしてくれます。

I bought mine for about $3 (?) at Giant Eagle (they were having a $1 off Revlon nail polish sale or something) but you can also get this for $4.99 at Ulta. The bottle is the typical Revlon nail polish bottle and the brush is on the thinner side. Similar to Essie brushes. It wasn't hard to apply but I prefer thicker flat brushes - I think those are the easiest to apply.

私はGiant Eagleというスーパーで買いました。でも、インターネットでも買えると思います。値段は大体$4.99だそうです。私はちょうどセールの時買ったので$3くらいで買えました♪


So here's a picture of my matte nails for now. I used Sally Hansen's insta-dri polish in petal pusher 105 underneath. (Probably like 5 coats to get it this opaque....) And just one coat of the Revlon topcoat.

今回トップコートの下に塗った色はSally Hansen の petal pusher 105でした。Sally Hansenのは5回くらい重ね塗りしないと濃く見えませんでした・・・。

One thing to be careful about - the matte finish makes it seem like your nails are dry pretty fast but beware of the smushing....if you press your nail against a hard surface, the nail polish does smush and move around. 

注意点を一つ:マットなトップコートだとすぐにネイル・カラーが乾いたように感じるけど、実際は下の色が完全に乾いてる訳じゃないので、トップ・コートを塗った後すぐ色々なものを触ったりするのは避けたほうがいいです。触っちゃうと、跡が残ってなおすのが大変です。


I've already decided what type of manicure I'm going to do after these matte nails.  I want to try the reverse French tip matte nail art. So the tip is the glossy color and the bottom half of the French is matte. I'll post a picture when I get around to doing that but for now I'm going to just post an example picture.

今のネイルの色がかけ始めたら、今度は下の写真みたいなマット・トップコートを使ったネイル・アートに挑戦したいと思います。今度爪を塗ったらまたブログにあげたいと思ってます。待っててください!ww


Overall, I love this matte top coat! I don't know the exact wear time of this but I've had it on for about 3 days so far and I haven't had any chips.  I have also seen other brands make mattifying top coats so you could check out some other brands as well and see if the brand you like makes a matte top coat (ex. Orly, Essie, NYC, Sephora by OPI).  I think the matte nail look is very interesting and is perfect to change up your normal manicure look :)

最後に、このレブロンのトップ・コートは3日間つけてて、まだかけてないです。レブロン以外のブランドもマット・トップコートをだしているので、好きなブランドのを探してみてもいいかもしれないです。(日本で買えそうなブランドだと、EssieやOrlyなどがだしてます。)マットな仕上がりはいつものネイルと違うので気に入ってます。是非試してください^^
