Nail: Matte Plum


Still not sure about this matte look. As you can see it looks a little bit streaky and that is down to the top coat.

Nails: Grey Leopard


This was my first attempt at doing acrylic nails, very long and make doing normal things so hard! 

Besides the acrylic nails I think this leopard print is good. They look better in real life, some of the silver spots are GOSH Holographic and others are UV silver.

Swatch: Models Own - Matte Black


When it dried it did look matte. I had to do three coats of the polish to make sure it wasn't patchy. The photo above was taken a day after painting and as you can see the polish doesn't look very matte. It did for about 12 hours and then seemed to loose its matte finish.

Swatch: Models Own - Gun Grey


This polish goes on really nicely, the above photo is 3 coats in natural light with no flash. Its a nice shiny grey colour and it didn't chip easily, lasted about 3 days on my nails without a top coat.
