My sister Malin loves (as you who have watched our video podcast already know) IsaDora's gel polish! I have not actually put these to the test properly before even though I was hungry, but have now finally done so and really agree with Malin!
The result is very nice, they dry quickly despite several layers and are incredibly durable. Really thumbs up!
There are specific gel nail polishes and a top coat to be used for just these and in IsaDora's latest press release I also got the gel top coat IsaDora Gel Matt Top Coat** which makes the nails matte.
This topcoat also gets two thumbs up! I apply two coats of gel-nail polish and then this over, and despite three coats, it dries relatively quickly without being soft for a long time, which is otherwise common in several applications. And the result is matte, even and nice.
What I like about the fact that this top coat is just a gel polish is because the result is so even on the nail even if they are not polished, otherwise matte nail polish can easily emphasize the irregularities more than a glossy one, I think.
On the middle finger I have the glossy topcoat so that you can see the difference better.
As you can see in the pictures in this post, my nails are not 100% smooth either but you should know what they look like underneath, I really have not taken care of my hands lately (fy ashamed) and they are so worn that it barely can be polished off because then they would be so thin .. So this even result on my nails is really great!
The shade I have in the pictures is 266 Purple Power, it looks a little more purple in the bottle but I think it goes more in the burgundy direction on the nails for some reason, but still very nice!
Can you use the matte top coat over other nail polishes as well?
Answer yes! :) It also works for nail polish that is not gel polish and gets the second mark, which makes me very happy.
The matte top coat IsaDora Gel Matt Top Coat** costs SEK 89, just like the other gel varnishes from IsaDora.
Any of you who tested? :)
