I'm back with one more post featuring a lacquer from the Glam Polish Coven collection. It was largely inspired by this manicure created by Debbie of @ladyandthe_stamp on Instagram. She mattified one of the beautiful Coven shades and I instantly knew I wanted to try to do that as well. To be honest, I would not have even thought to mattify these shades since the flakies loose all their holo goodness, but the gorgeous velvet look and feel really made up for it.
To create this manicure, I used the following:
Base polish: Glam Polish Katrina Van Tassel
Stamping plate: BP-L016 from Born Pretty Store
Stamping polish & edging of tips: Essie Good as Gold
Matte top coat: Essie Matte About You
Coincidentally, I noticed this same pattern on two stamping plates that I got in the mail this past weekend. Moyra Plate 11 (Damask Drapery) and JQ-L12 plate from AliExpress. There is some slight variation between the different plates in the size and spacing of the diamonds as you can see in the scans below. I love the sizing of the Moyra plate, but the spacing of diamonds seems slightly off and bugs me. It was probably a good thing I only had the Born Pretty Store plate when creating the manicure so I didn't have to choose between them.
Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else ever 'pet' their matte nails? They are so soft to the touch, I just can't resist touching them all day. It's quite distracting...
I'd love to know what you think of this manicure!
Thanks for looking!
