Hello everyone! I HIT 500 friends here!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT! It makes my day!! hehe :-)
Today I have two beauties to show you!! First up we have ManGlaze Royal Matterimoaning! You can buy a few different places, their website, http://manglaze.myshopify.com/, Facebook, Amazon, and Star Trinkets (Signapore based shop).
Well from my notes on this mani, I used 1 coat. I did this last week, and what is so sad is that I can't even remember. So I quick painted a nail and it is opaque in 1 coat. I should believe my notes I suppose, but this just looked *too* perfect! That just goes to show how AMAZING ManGlaze is to get perfectly matte polish in one coat. I actually use a lot of their polishes as bases since they dry super fast and are painted on so easily with 1 coat. Make sure you check them out! They unfortunately just had a sale that ended yesterday, but as I'm typing this, it's still on sale, so hurry! You won't regret these! I just love that it looks like satin!
Then I threw on a coat of Seche Vite - *DROOL* I know that ManGlaze is all about the Matte, but they make some serious gorgeous polish. I absolutely love it matte, so don't get me wrong, but shiny is gorgeous too!
I thought I took a picture of me taping off a nail to show you guys, but unfortunately my camera didn't work because it wasn't there :-( So what I do is wait about 10-15 minutes for the Seche Vite to set. I take a piece of tape and apply it to the inside of my hand and stick it a few times, removing some of the tackiness. Then line up the tape on the nail where I want it, and make sure to check for air bubbles along the line, because that can cause bleeding of the color you are applying. I apply the color over the nail and tape, then remove immediately. This should give you a nice crisp line and the diagonal look as seen below.
I used 1 coat of Daring Digits Copperline and topped it with Seche Vite. This color is gorgeous! I unfortunately don't see this listed on the Daring Digits Shop on Etsy, but hopefully there will be a restock soon! Make sure to check out the Daring Digits Facebook for information on colors and restocks!! This combo rocks, doesn't it!? I just love the contrasting colors together! And Copperline just glows!
But what would ManGlaze Matte polish be without it's matte finish, so I went back to use another coat of ManGlaze over the Seche Vite (waited again for 10-15 minutes before applying). I got a tape picture this time, and I tried my best to line up the tape with that same diagonal (I had some troubles with my middle finger though!)
Here is my finished mani! So to recap, 1 coat of Royal Matterimoaning, Seche Vite, Copperline, Seche Vite, and last diagonal of Royal Matterimoaning.
Here was the original way I wore it, but decided to do a tape mani for a post instead. I do love both looks ;-) Below is 1 coat Royal Matterimoaning and 1 coat of Copperline with Wicked Fast top coat by Cult Nails. Pardon my cuticles!
I hope you enjoyed this fun combo!! I hope you all have a great day!
