The Sophistication Of The Jin Soon x Tibi Nail Polish Collaboration Is Rather Remarkable

We may be fans of crazy nail art, but we are also hugely into the sophistication of a matte top coat over a simple polish and when we heard New York City nail lady Jin Soon Choi was launching one, we were all over that. Our previous matte experiences have been hit and miss — sometimes they don’t go matte at all, others they’re somewhat streaky and weird. The other day we had a mani in which we opted to try Jin’s newest collection — a collaboration with clothing brand Tibi. The colors are epic — think chrome, military green, deep blue and more. We went for Obsidian, a galactic-looking black with glitter. But wait! We did a matte topcoat. Matte over glitter? Yes, and it’s so sick. You get small sparkling flecks amid a ‘murder black’. Such a cool look.
