Why, thank you. I can't take much credit for them though. They're out of a box, I just lightly file them.

I NEED THAT MATTE TOPCOAT!

I should go snoop around the Rimmel stand at Priceline.

I intended to get my next nails done as Sonoio inspired muted medium blue and bright red, but I may have to join your matte navy blue with shiny tips bandwagon. Me gusta. I'll be getting them done later today.

Got very bored whilst waiting for my updates to install at 2 this morning so i did this!

Rimmel 5 in 1 basecoat, Nails inc Thames polish, generic black polish, nails inc matte topcoat.
I used a paintbrush that i'd normally use for painting my games workshop models for the dots, i was going to use a tooth pick but couldn't find any.


EDIT...Now with the same colours swapped.

Without matte topcoat

Hey Nanou - it is a skeleton leaf :D i love embedding things in the acrylic and generally anything that will sit nice in there gets put in at some point - tin foil, peacock feathers, pheasant feathers, metal shavings the lot haha

How do you find the Avon Matte lasts for you Sarah? I have a few bottles of it and it chips and flakes so easily, doesn't seem to stay matte for very long either...starts to go shiny after a couple of hours, which gives me a sad. :(

My nails are fake Debs so they don't chip. I find that the Avon one doesn't go shiny as quickly as the rimmel top coat & lasts a lot longer than MO matte black (I'm gonna take a pic as I've had this on my nails for 2 or 3 days)
