This was one of those manis that just happened…no planning involved. I didn’t like it at first. But after looking at the pictures, I’ve changed my mind. Sometimes a matte topcoat can take a so-so design and make it look like a velvety masterpiece (weeeeeell, maybe).
I started with two coats of Zoya Tracie, a “yellow-toned, pistachio” green with a slight frosty shimmer. I created my wallflowers with Zoya Vanessa and Essie Jazz. I always use Seche Vite even if I plan to finish with a matte topcoat since it seems to seal everything into a tidy smooth texture. After about five minutes, I did a final coat of Sephora by OPI matte topcoat.
The color combo was all very granny-ish. I like how the matte finish “traps” in the shimmery Tracie. It reminds me of wallpaper.
