Blue Matte Glitter

Sometimes I think I don't play with my matte top coat often enough.. So I decided to change that and made a simple glitter matte manicure, the one you see below:

But I wanted to show also how I reached this look. First, I started out with 2 coats of OPTIMA polish (nameless, numberless), a medium-blue frosty shade. Frosty! What was I thinking when buying it?! Obviously, "oh, a new polish brand detected! Let's check it out!". This checking out turned out to be an epic fail buy : {

Ewh, just look at that streaky finish. It neither works ok with stamping, so with a cold heart I just sold it on ebay a couple of days ago. Probably because I wanted to get rid of this yucky finish so desperately, I covered it with NYC Lights, Camera, Glitter!. This magic baby can always make things prettier. It did, in a way, in this case too:

But even that was not enough. So I topped all that with Essie Matte About You, and only after that I was totally satisfied : )

Do you have any bias against frosty finish? Or it is what you like? :)

  1. I like that glitter polish very much! And I am surprised what the matte top coat can do with the result - it is so pretty!
    Btw, I love frosty polishes :)

    1. Yes, I noticed that you are showing frosty polishes every now and then, obviously you like them more than I do :) And you are right - matte top coat can work miracles :)))

  3. У меня предубеждение, да еще какое! ))
    Результат впечатлил, совсем другой эффект и не только можно носить, но и нужно, здорово выглядит

    1. У меня тоже :) Фрости не покупаю, а если появляются сами - стараюсь изгонять :) Или маскировать этот жуткий финиш)

    1. Спасибо :) А я все недоумевала, зачем лакобренды до сих пор фрости финиш выпускают, а оказывается есть те, кому они нравятся) Буду знать)

    1. Thank you! Oh, nice selectivity :) Green frosties are not any more attractive than the blues, in my opinion :)
