Eep, love it! I just happen to have a matte on my nails right now! I really want to do the one with matte black with glossy black dots. So chic!

The matte black with glossy black dots sounds classy!  I would love to see it if you get around it doing it Cheesy

I'm definitely loving the matte top coat I bought over the weekend...ah the possibilities!

Which top coat do you have l2e? I think I have the Orly Matte one. It's ok, but in my experience mattes chip pretty fast and then I am sad. The one I have on my nails right now is actually a matte lime green Zoya. I thought briefly about putting the matte top coat on it to help prevent chipping (possibly?) but then decided to go to bed instead of waiting for more polish to dry. Cheesy

Here's a pin of what I mentioned before:

oooh...pretty!  I think I have scrapbook paper with embossed dots that look like that! Cheesy

I bought a bottle of china glaze matte magic Smiley

Another product that I've been itching to try, is sally hansen's big smoky top coat.

I reckon I have enough nail polish to last me a couple of lifetimes...so it's time to look for top coats that can add panache to what I already own Cheesy

Hey nail peeps! There's a sweet deal on at Zoya right now, holiday trios for $15 with free shipping. What a deal! I got two trios because addiction. Also there is one trio with Pixiedust, had to get that one! I am not into patriotic color schemes, but you don't have to wear them all together Wink

I'm not affiliated with zoya, just thought I'd pass on a sweet deal (polishes are usually $9 each or $10 each for Pixie Dust, and shipping can get spendy too).

I had forgotten how much fun painting nails can be Smiley
I've been spending more on polishes recently (I love opi and essie the most) and found an US made top polish from Ross last weekend that said 11x stronger (I'm still puzzled by "stronger than what?" Cheesy) - but it was US made!
(and it started peeling today... go figure :S)
