Joining the tip crew. I had to freehand mine as I lost my stencil thingies.

I did neaten them up earlier but then managed to chip 3 of my nails within the space of 5 minutes.

My new nail lust! Barry M dusky mauve, with rimmel 5 in 1 base/topcoat.
Its currently only on one hand because i have forgotten to do the other one (this happens sometimes) I'm quite tempted to use my nails inc matte topcoat and see how it looks..... I'm loving the muted nail colours right now though. Models own have lots that i want.

Yeah the matte looks much better. That's it, I'm gonna buy some matte today!


Random midnight nail painting! Anyone else feel weird when taking photos of their nails? I find it a bit tough to get a decent photo as my other hand is killing trying to hold a huge camera :lol:

Can you put matte over a clear top coat or do you use the matte as a top coat?

Thanks! Just wanted to know if it would work over a top coat as well, and obviously it does.

Oo thanks. I Couldn't find any brand matte in my town. I read good reviews for the Essie one so I think I'll try to get that.

I painted my nails tonight so I thought I'd post it in here, I love the colour and its so shiny!

It looks a bit orange on my screen, but it's a bright true red.

Why, thank you. I can't take much credit for them though. They're out of a box, I just lightly file them.

I NEED THAT MATTE TOPCOAT!

I should go snoop around the Rimmel stand at Priceline.

I intended to get my next nails done as Sonoio inspired muted medium blue and bright red, but I may have to join your matte navy blue with shiny tips bandwagon. Me gusta. I'll be getting them done later today.

Got very bored whilst waiting for my updates to install at 2 this morning so i did this!

Rimmel 5 in 1 basecoat, Nails inc Thames polish, generic black polish, nails inc matte topcoat.
I used a paintbrush that i'd normally use for painting my games workshop models for the dots, i was going to use a tooth pick but couldn't find any.


EDIT...Now with the same colours swapped.

Without matte topcoat
