New Sephora Matte Domestic Goddess


Sephora by OPI Domestic Goddess Matte on nails, Regular Domestic Goddess on tips


So we all know that Essie and recently China Glaze has come out with the wonderful matte topcoats that will pretty much transform any of your favorite nail polishes into matte shades. However, since Sephora by OPI's Domestic Goddess is my absolute favorite nail polish, my heart skipped a beat when I found out that Domestic Goddess was one of the 3 shades the brand had selected to feature in limited edition matte formulas. Since I of course have the original as well, I figured I'd change it up a little and use the regular Domestic Goddess (gloss) formula to make pretty glossy tips on top of the matte formula. I think adding the glossy tips is a good way to make all matte nails a little more interesting :) Of course, you can always use any clear topcoat to create a shiny tip to any matte manicure, however it won't be as intense as layering an actual color.
You can even try a more bold look by using a black glossy color like OPI's Black Onyx on the tips. Although, I personally like pairing black tips with a black matte polish :)

  6. I'll be quite honest, I've never been a fan of matte nails. I like matte colors but with a shine coat over. I feel matte just takes away from the pleasure of looking at your nails and enjoying the vibrant colors.

  12. Hi Tiffany, I like the ton-in-tone version better. It is difficult to draw a perfect line with a different color. It looks always a bit messy and the all violet version is just more sophisticated.

  17. Tiffany, will you do a video of how you do the tips? Do you use a guide or do you just paint it on 'carefully'!? Also, I went to Ulta and they had never even heard of the matte topcoat! I'm going to Sephora to look for it today!
