ITEM OF THE DAYItem of the DayAnnie Stamell

For those of you as nail-obsessed as me (and I know that’s a lot of you), then listen up: I’m going to tell you about a product that’s going to really change your nail game. I’m talking about the best matte top coat out there, Essie’s “Matte About You”.

Not only does this polish have one of the the brand’s punniest names (and we all know how much I love those nail polish puns!), but it will revitalize your current color collection. My favorite way to use the matte topcoat is over a shimmer color. It can give a very cool coal, rust or denim effect. Unfortunately it’s not easy to find, and I wonder if it’s even been discontinued (I picked up my last bottle at a random NYC drugstore) but you can order it online at for under $10.
