To Shine or Not To Shine . . . . that is the question?!

I first saw Erika’s “Chloe’s Nail’s” & PolishHoarder’s Valentine Nails.  By the time I saw Rachel’s TopCoatIt post (which is insanely gorgeous)…..  I had to get in on the “UNshining” process!!!  Smile 

They made matte gorgeous.  And they inspired my current manicure.  My previous hatred for matte has dissolved… I don’t know that I’m ready to go all the way matte…. but this is a definite start in that direction.

This is a very cheery (no, not cherry, though I guess it could also be classified as such) red with a glittery shimmer that gives the color a bit more dimension.  It was thinner than I expected, so I used three coats to get my desired coverage.  It doesn’t look like suede to me, but I do like it.

Definitely now going to purchase a mattifying topcoat and will be on the lookout for more matte polish to experiment with!!
