NOTD: Matte and gloss make for classy combination

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

I haven't done a Nail of the Day lately. I wanted to do something simple yet a little bit different.

So I did a matte base color with a gloss design.

For the base coat I used OPI Cajun Shrimp. It's a gorgeous coral shade and applies flawlessly. Then I used a coat of Matte Finish Top Coat. I let that dry for a bit and then applied the design using OPI I Eat Manely Lobster. This polish is almost the same color but has a shimmer to it. The design was a simple dots and a "swoosh."

I really like the contrast of the matte and the gloss. I have to admit though. I am spoiled with using my fast dry top coats.

 Have you used a matte and a gloss finish in the same mani?

SoFlaJo Pink It Up! swatches and review

Saturday, January 26, 2013

I have a great polish to share with you today. SoFlaJo Pink It Up! is part of the Matte Love Nail Polish Collection. It's not quite a neon pink and it's not quite a bubble gum pink. It's a soft, yet vivid pink that is gorgeous as a matte or with a top coat.

The formula was fantastic and was simply a breeze to apply. The polish has a quick dry time which is beneficial if you are leaving it as a matte and not using a quick dry top coat.

I simply love this shade of pink and the matte finish is classy and elegant. I used two coats of polish for this swatch. It has a shimmery yet matte finish that is stunning.
