Twinsie Tuesday: Matte

21 Feb

Today’s Twinsie Tuesday is supposed to be a matte polish.  I only own 2 matte polishes and I didn’t want to use either of them.  I compromised.  I did a mani inspired by Erica of Chole’s Nails (who isn’t inspired by her!)

I used Julep Boris and Nicole (the rust color), and Sinful Colors Nirvana and did my polka dots.  I topped it with Seche Vite.  That combination by itself was so pretty.  Then I free handed the tip with Nirvana and added Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love just to the tip.

I haven’t experimented with matte all that much.  I want to play with it more, but I really want to get my hands on some Essie Matte About You.  It seems like it’s got a stronger matte effect.  To be honest, I still like the glossy mani better than a matte one.

Be sure the check out every one else’s mattes today:

    Thank you, thank you everyone! I really should swatch Boris and Nicole so you can see the bronzey color it has to it. I think that bronze undertone is why the brown Nirvana looks so good with it.
