For Fall/Winter 2013, famed nail artist Jin Soon Choi collaborated
with women's wear designer Amy Smilovic of Tibi to create a collection that represents a polished and utilitarian look.
Consisting of five revolutionary shimmering shades and a matte topcoat, the Tibi Collection was inspired by the idea of layering while keeping to the urban edginess of Smilovic's designs.
Obsidian (Galaxy Black with Mica Flecks)
Black had a major moment in Tibi's fall 2013 collection, and Jin took it one step further adding striking galaxy-like flecks. When topped with Matte Maker, it takes on a velvety, opaque finish.
“The Fall/Winter 2013 Tibi Collection is all about texture – I did not want to only offer one type of finish,” Choi says. “I’ve always worked with high shine and working with a matte finish has added different dimensions to the line. The Matte Maker, when paired with the collection’s colors, provided the functional elegance that we were trying to achieve with this collection.”
THE FORMULA IS 5-FREE AND WAS CREATED WITHOUT TOXIC CHEMICALS SUCH AS FORMALDEHYDE, TOLUENE, DPB AND CAMPHOR. THIS POLISH DOES CONTAIN HIGH-TECH POLYMERS AND RESINS ENSURING LONGER WEAR AND AN EXTENDED SHELF LIFE. UV FILTERS IN EACH POLISH PROTECT AGAINST FADING AND YELLOWING OF COLOR.

How to apply
To achieve the layered look, Choi created a matte topcoat. Aptly called Matte Maker, the matte topcoat goes on smoothly and does not change the color of the underlying nail polish. Upon drying the nail is left smooth with a velvety finish. The Matte Maker possesses a high-performance formula ensuring a flawless application, short drying time, and a lasting finish.
