Is anyone else super excited about the OPI matte colors for the fall?  I can't wait to try them out!  I think I will do matte nails with gloss tips.  Should be pretty cute!

I plan on getting mine on eBay, since local stores don't seem to have it.  I wonder if there is something to make a nail polish matte?  I've heard of some kinds of topcoats, but I don't know what's in them.  Do they just make the polish drier?

When I was in jr high and changed my nail polish EVERY DAY (for real) I had some various top coats that were matte or super shiny. Also had scented top coats...cK1 anybody?

I think around here I have to buy OPI at beauty supply stores.

I loved the scented nail polish!  I just threw out one.. it was strawberry.  I can get OPI around here, but they don't have the matte stuff yet, plus on eBay, its $7 including shipping instead of $9.  I've been googling, and all I've come up with for a matte polish, is Wet and Wild nail strengthener.  Supposedly it dries flat.  For only $2, I will try it when I go to Walgreens tomorrow.

Okay, so I bought the Wet and Wild #201, but it doesn't seem to work... It says "new" on the label, so I wonder if they changed the formula or something.  I also found that Nailtek can be mixed with pigment to make a matte, but its pricey.  $10 for 1/4 of an ounce at Meijer, but $6 on eBay.  I guess there has to be something with a drying agent or something that can get rid of the gloss?
