The OPI matte nail polish destroyed my nails. I have super strong nails that take quite a beating to break. After one use of the matte polish, my nails have been dried out and they are cracking and peeling off in layers until my nails are wafer thin. I had to cut all my nails down to the nubs to avoid further injury. Aside from the damaging effects, it looks terrible – like concrete. It’s just nails on a chalk board every time I look at it. And it does not go on smoothly so there are ridges and bumps (done by a nail professional who normally does a great job!!). It also started chipping after one day!! It says not to use “base coat, top coat, drying products, or hand lotion when wearing Matte”. No lotion? How is that possible? I know this trend didn’t take off, thus, not exactly a “trend” but in case you’re curious and wanted to experiment – consider yourself forewarned!!! At OPI.
