Karen O's favorite polish

Karen O's favorite polish

OMG. I love these matte nail polishes Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is sporting [total sidenote: check out their new single “Zero”their album It’s Blitz! was just released yesterday!].

Anyway, back to beauty: the polish ($22) is from KO (and no, that doesn’t stand for our leading lady’s name — it’s actually Knock Out, and from makeup artist Mike Potter). I don’t think I’ve honestly ever seen a matte polish but I really like. Their black can look a little gothy, white is more funky, and the pink looks sweet. I haven’t tried the red yet, but I love how it looks on the site — it reminds me of cherry-dipped Mister Softee ice cream.

I tested it out for myself. The long wand is really easy to use and it dries in probably 10 seconds or less. I just did two coats quickly and in less than a minute I’m done! Biggest plus in my eyes, since I abhore waiting for polish to dry. KO also has a “Flatte Top”, which can make any of your polishes look matte. Other colors include red (“Karen”), white (“Powder”), pink (“Calamine”), and “Flatte Black” which I helped myself to below:

I did this in like 30 seconds so it’s not the most precise job, but still loving it.

What do you think? Would you try matte nail polish, or are you a fan of the shiny?

    def the black over the white. it looks too much like you got bored at work and doused your fingers in white out.
