Edgy French

Hey friends!
You won't believe it, but that purple mani I had going on lasted like 4 days! Crazy right?
There was one in between, it lasted about a day. I never finished it either, so no pics. =(
But here's this! I love matte! This one was super simple and super fun to do!

So I used Venique Dominating Thigh Highs for black. My Sephora NOPI mattecoat, Venique The Perfect Accessory is the red!!

In order to get the red as bright as I wanted, but not too bright, I put Sally Hansen Wet Cement down first. That's just a nice, light grey! It was better than white = Too bright! And better than black = waaayyy too dark!
Quite a fan! I think it turned out nice!
I taped the red (and grey) after the matte had dried. I thought it needed more so I used a cheapy little glitter striper as well. At that point, I could have gotten away with freehanding the red, no problem.

I've been watching a ton of Fullmetal Alchemist lately with the SO. AWESOME anime, in case you were wondering. I watch the subs, so I can't do my nails at the same time...Hence the delay and long lasting purple mani!! I'll be thinking of ideas for the next mani watching Ed and Al! =D

What do you think? How's the matte doing it for ya??

Using the grey was a good idea. I will have to try that sometime.
