Steady hands at the ready...

White nail polishes are possibly one of the difficult polishes to use, they require more coats than usual for opacity, go thick and gloopy quickly and take an age to dry - then you end up looking like you tipex'd your nails so why go to all that effort?

I find white polish alone to be too much, too much resemblance of a bad Tipex job but white can look amazing underneath nail art. Recently I've been loving monochrome nails and yearning for black and white polka dots, classy, high fashion nails. I picked up the nail dotter and went dotty on my nails and then a thought occurred to me - 'how cool would this look if it was matte?'. Out came the matte top coat and along come some pretty cool nails!

Monochrome matte nails are my next big thing, I wonder when i'll get enough, it's the perfect way to take a basic, boring white nail and turn it into something great. Things to watch however are the quality of your white polish - I wouldn't recommend this one from Barry M, I have lots of trouble with it being gloopy and never drying and the time left to dry between nail art finished and top coat application - you can easily smudge the dots on your nail art with your top coat ruining all your hard work.

What do you think of these matte monochrome nail designs?
