Twinsie Tuesday | Mattify

Good morning!

As today's TT prompt is to mattify, I wanted to do something a bit more than just matte coat a creme I have (because let's be real here, you know I wasn't going to do nail art).  I decided I'd ride the nude trend right now and start with a base of China Glaze How is She Dune? from the Desert Escape Collection (swatches on the blog soon - and you're going to love them!).  Perhaps my new favorite nude creme, I then layered the flakie of all flakies, Essie Shine of the Times over it.  Unfortunately, my pictures do not do the combination justice.  The fiery orange and gold flakies absolutely had this mani alight!  I then topped it off with Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love.  I have a bunch of matte tops coats and since I don't use them much, I just grabbed whichever one was handiest.

Here's the matte final version.  I altered the hand pose so you can really see the flakies in action.

And in case you wanted to see this pre-mattification, here it is.  Not a huge difference, but it figured I'd show you nonetheless.

Which version do you like best?  Let me know in the comments!
