I haven't really tried a matte / shiny mani before, they have either been matte or shiny not both. This was a first, it turned out OK.
-OPI - Nail Envy
-Spoiled - Steel The Show
-NYC - Matte Me Crazy
-Wet 'n Wild - Top Coat
I don't love this, but it's OK. Somehow my Matte TC got a little dried up and was gloopy and not coming out of the bottle so that put me in bad spirits.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet, but as I mentioned before, my husband and I went to an Intro To Photography class yesterday as part of our Valentine's gift to each other. (Please note, that I didn't use any of my new skills for the above photos) My husband did play around with some of the techniques that we learned about in the class (ISO, Shutter Speed, White Balance, etc) and took this photo of my base coat when we got home. I love it and can't wait to play around with the camera a little more myself!
The one thing that the instructor keep re-iterating was that there is no right or wrong photos/settings. Change the ISO, change the Appeture, etc to that the photo that you want to take of the story you want to tell. I love when there is no right or wrong :)
