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)

I love this! Oooh I really wanna try that style now. How did you get the black line to be jagged like that?

Ooh, I bought that magnetized one on a whim the other day, not tried it yet but it looks pretty cool from your pic! How close do you have to hold the magnet for it to work? I have visions of the magnet getting polish on it & smudging my nails...

I hit my nail once, if you look on the lid there's a curved bit of plastic, just put that bit by the nail bed. I found the longer you leave the magnet over it the more distorted the polish becomes.

I saw this the other day and was wondering if any of you ladies tried it! It looks awesome, I'll have to find me some.

Looks awesome! I just learned about that polish and definitely wanted to try it if I could find it, was wondering if anyone else had used it yet.

First try with 17 magnetized:

and then I tried mattifying it:

Pretty pleased with it, the magnet thing is easier than I was expecting, or perhaps I have a steadier hand than I thought!
