Have to look official tomorrow to get our visas renewed so I have a more toned down manicure to show you. Toned down for me, at least. I recently picked up Orly Star Spangled at a Sally's Beauty and man is this the most amazing red. It doesn't really show in the pictures but this one absolutely glows and glimmers. Full of tiny glass flecks, this one really lives up to its name. As I seem incapable of just leaving a mani alone I thought I'd try a shiny/matte french a la Chloe's Nails. I'm really happy with the result! It's just enough to show a different texture without being over the top. This also gave me a chance to try out the Joe Fresh Matte Top Coat I found the other day.
Both of these polishes applied really well, Star Spangled was opaque in two coats despite looking more like a jelly. The matte effect is strong in the top coat too, better than the Nails Inc. one I found a while back.
Anyway, picture time!
