Still not too exciting, but one image in particular caught my interest. I'm not really sure why it did, but I looked at it and thought I could try something that uses both glossy and matte finishes.
I immediately thought that I should try to do matte nails with glossy tips. It's a style I've seen done before a few times, but I have never really used a matte topcoat before.
So I did just that. I painted my nails with a "normal" black, since I don't own a matte one. I then taped off the tips, and applied a matte top coat to the rest of the nail. The black tips weren't all that shiny on their own, so I then applied Seche Vite to them. This was my first time using this matte topper, or any matte topper.
