Even if you’re not quite ready to put down the coral lipstick and start embracing fall makeup just yet, we’re pretty sure this manicure from Jin Soon x Tibi’s fall polish collection will have you rethinking your nail colors at least. The manicure is deceptively easy to do, but will definitely turn heads because it just looks so freakin’ cool. Simply pick your favorite Jin Soon color (illustrated is Jasper, a shimmering burgundy) and layer her new matte top coat (Matte Maker) on the tips to add a sophisticated tone-on-tone dimension. Or, you can flip it around and paint a glossy tip over a matte nail bed. The great thing about Matte Maker is that when you apply a glossy coat over it, the nail will take the texture of the top-most coat.
“The Fall/Winer 2013 Tibi Collection is all about texture–I did not want to offer only one type of finish,” says Choi. “I’ve always worked with high shine and working with a matte finish has added different dimensions to the line.” The matte coat goes on easily and dries down to a smooth, rich, velvety finish. With 5 new shades (a burgundy, a silver gray, a shimmery black, a sparkling midnight blude, and a holographic olive green) and the Matte Maker, fall manicure options are endless (at least until spring comes around again). You can’t blame us for getting an early start!
