Got monday morning blues? I got some..actually I get many! Aarrghhhh!
I think I start getting them by sunday evening just coz I know it monday tomorrow. LOL!
I've put on this really bright and cheery mani to help me put them off.
I have used Sally Hansen's Firm Fig for the base + Inglot Matte Top coat
Stamping plates: M69 (stamped straight and upside down on alternate fingers)
Stamping colour: Konad White
Sally Hansen's Firm Fig is sheer and the above pic took 4-5 coats to make it opaque, resulting in pillow imprints on my nails from the previous night when I applied it.
This is how the base looks with Inglot's Matte Top coat. (Rs. 490/-) ($10)
This is my first matte top coat and I am in Love with this effect. It also smoothened out the pillow lines :)
Dries really fast and gives a nice smooth matt look. Doesn't feel powdery.
This top coat does show little tip wear after 2 days..as you see in the mani (1st pic), the tips have a slight sheen. But one can easily re-apply top coat every 2 days as it dries soon.
I loved the effect of this. Instead of searching for various shades in matt, I think its best to buy a matte top coat and use it on your existing polishes.
Do you have a Matt top coat? or plan to buy one?
Love to hear your comments on this.
P.S: Also I am making a couple of easy-to-do nail wheels for Indian marriage-y nails.
If you have any colour suggestions that you'd like to pair with a dress do let me know. If you are the bride-to-be I'd love to come up with some easy peasy manis for your big day.
Do leave your suggestions for colour combinations you'd like to see.
