Essie Meet me at Sunset with Essie Matte About You and Shiny French Tips
Essie Meet me at Sunset with Essie Matte About You
I have been wanting to try a funky french matte manicure for a while. This is that manicure! I used scotch tape to block of the tips and applied Essie Matte About You along the nail. I peeled back the tape and voila! Instant monochromatic funky french manicure. I think the next time I do this I will try applying the Matte About You over the whole nail and then free hand a top coat for the shiny tips. I'm not crazy about how the tape worked. It looks a little crooked. I think it's just the shape of my nails. It's very in fashion right now to have square or squoval nails. Unfortunately my natural shape is much more oval so I think the tape is just too straight for my nails. I do like the interesting texture. What do you think? Do you like matte effects?
