In today’s video I’ve created 3 looks that showcase matte vs glossy. For the first I used blue polish then regular topcoat. Now that it’s dry I’m making a triangle with striping tape. From the centre place a horizontal stripe then continue them to fill up the space.
Carefully apply matte topcoat, a small brush will help you be more precise, then quickly remove the tape. Shimmery polish looks amazing when mattified. For this look I used striping tape again to make a triangle shape from my cuticle.
Paint with dark polish and remove the tape, then paint a layer of the shimmer over the triangle. Clean up the lines with remover, then protect and speed dry your nails with quick dry topcoat. Finish by mattifying the triangle to create a shimmery/matte contrast.
For the accent nail, paint it black, add a layer of shimmer, and then cover in matte topcoat. Finally the easiest design. Over a mattified colour paint irregular pebble shapes with a glossy topcoat. You can also use a dotting tool to do this.
Leave some gaps here and there and go back and fill them in with a glittery polish. You end up with a giraffe print, scaly, pebbly type design… I don’t know what to call it but it’s cute! Maybe it’s a dragon egg? I dunno.
