Rachel....This one's for you :P

So I received a very sweet email from a fellow polish lover, that asked me about trying Sally Hansen Celeb City with matte tips. She suggested I try it with OPI Lincoln Park After Dark Matte, but since I had used that one so much lately, I decided to grab Orly Matte Vinyl, they both look like a matte black, IMO. I just LOVE Orly's Vinyl collection! Here it is with Celeb City used as the base and as the tips :)







Thanks for the idea Rachel, and also for reminding me that I had Celeb City :P

  11. Gorgeous! I love the silver with the matte tips more. Also how do you get your nail polish to look so nice and rounded at the base?

  12. Ohmigosh, that came out SO much better than I thought it would! I think I even like the black matte base more than the Celeb City base! Thank you for trying and posting it! It looks fantastic!

  14. The Orly color looks sooo smooth. O.O

    Which matte do you prefer, OPI's or Orly's?

  15. Thanks you guys!

    Nana, that really is practise. I take a blob of polish on my brush, and place it in the center of my nail, and then lightly push the polish back towards my cuticle getting as close as I can. Then I drag it forward. Then for the sides, I do the same, but as I'm dragging it forward, to the tip, I kind of press the polish out to the sides :)

    Rachel, It does look great! Thanks for the idea!!!

    Cammy, I don't really prefer one to the other. I love both brands, and application is great on both.
