Maybelline - Matte Blue

APPLICATION: Somewhat lumpy because the polish dries so quickly
TOPCOAT?: Not until after stamping
SOURCE: Matte Blue: Part of my blog giveaway winnings from Paillette: a little nail polish journal
  Stamping polish (Avon Mirror Shine - Glisten):
COMMENTS: I was excited to try the Maybelline mattes that I won (in spite of the fact that I own a different mattes myself (green), but haven't worn it yet, lol!). After swatching them on a nail wheel, I decided to start with this one, which although it shows brush strokes, has a gorgeous brushed metal look.

You can see my application flaws in this photo:

Much better here:

Super fabulous at a distance!

Stamped with Avon Mirror Shine - Glisten, and with one coat of topcoat:
