The MAC Cosmetics Nail Trend Collection has some wonderful fall shades, and its dark green shade, Beyond Jealous, has been particularly in demand. I love MAC Polishes. They always apply and wear well for me, and the shades are always unique. Beyond Jealous is a deep green shade that is so dark that in some lighting it looks almost black. I decided to use it to try out this fall’s other hot trend—matte nails with a glossy tip.
Here is a swatch of the shade in natural sunlight.
After applying two coats of MAC Beyond Jealous (although I really could have gotten away with one coat on this one), I then applied Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher this top coat gives any posh a matte finish. It is rather fun to watch it as it happens! Here are my nails after I applied Matte About You.
finally, I added a bit of glossy top coat to the tips. I don’t have the steadiest hand for that, so I think that next time I will have a pro do it for me in order to get the best look. But you can still get the idea of how they should look with a glossy tip from the swatch below.
I think this look works best with darker shades. So try it with dark green, red, black, navy etc. for a trendy look this fall!
