So I got my Green Friday polishes in! Because of their huge amount of orders, though, I'm missing Envy and Tangy. Here's a view of the colors I did get in today:
From left to right: Jinx, Persiphony, Irene, Suvi, Midori, Veruschka, and Zara.
I've never used a matte before, so I decided to try Veruschka first. It took me about three or four times to get it anywhere near acceptable. Below is the best I could get, no top coat. I'm not sure if a topcoat is supposed to be used with a matte, so I didn't for this time. Is there a special topcoat that you use for mattes?
I can't get the matte smooth... I don't know what else to do, besides just get more practice applying polish.
Any suggestions from you polish gurus?
