Welcome Matte

opi-matte-collection-july-09Glossy nails have long dominated as the go-to for manis & pedis. This summer, a new collection from OPI will allow understated beauties to indulge in something a little different– a matte finish. The line will include six of some of the more recently popular shades (among them You Don't Know Jacques and Russian Navy) in a toned down alternative to their high-gloss counterpart. Perhaps we are on the cuff of a trend in the making? This bangle set in matte silver would suggest so. nordstrom-matte-bangles-set-12-48
