I don't think I'm ever satisfied with a mani until I've taken it as far as I can. I always end up konadding, mattifying, and/or frenching any mani I have on. Then once that's done, I may keep in on another 24, possibly 48, hours. NP ADD, I tell you. :P
With yesterday's Black Magic/Black Cream mani I was curious to see what the glitter would look like matted. I loved it before, but let me tell you, it's amazing now.
I used one coat of Orly Matte Top and then finished it off with a french in WnW Black Cream. I really like the contrast between the satin finish of the Matte Top and the shiny black french.
