Matte Black Tie Optional

Today I have a fun simple mani for you. This is one of those hurry up and get it done, you have places to be manis. 


I started off with 2 coats of Essie Nice is Nice. I love this soft dusky purple. Its such a sweet simple color, very unassuming. It goes on smoothly, takes two coats to reach opaqueness and wears great. 


Next, I topped it off with Hard Candy's Black Tie Optional. This glitter topper is unlike anything that I own and it is AH-MAZE-BALLS. I know it isn't for everyone, but I love the graffiti look it gives to a manicure. Finally, I decided to try my Matte Top Coat for the first time. 



I love love love the way this manicure looks mattified. Why did I wait so long to use this matte top coat? I have the one from Revlon and for $4 it is totally worth it! Such a great purchase. 

Have you matted manis? What did you think?

Enjoy & until tomorrow, Amy Lee

    1. I have no idea why it took me so long to use that top coat. It was super fun and gave it a different texture.
