Matte Afterglow

Hello all! Sorry I have been MIA for a couple of weeks. I started my new job and am studying for my Series 7 Securities License right now, so not much time available for blogging.  I did manage to do some nail art this week, it's up on my Instagram which you can get to right over here >>>>>

So I thought I would post one of my looks from a few months back that I have in my backlog of manis to post.  Now this polish is no longer available, I actually bought the very last bottle.  This was also my first foray into using a matte top coat.  If you haven't noticed, I'm a bit of a glitterholic, and very magpie (oooh SHINY!) about my nails.  Yes, I am that person sitting at the green light because I just caught a glimpse of holo in the sunlight and can't look away. Sorry not sorry!

Anyhow, this is Ken Doll from Liquid Afterglow Lacquer, mattefied with Essie's matte top coat, Matte About You.  I do like how you can see the different glitters easily in the matte state, it really adds another layer of complexity to this jelly sandwich!

Liquid Afterglow Lacquer can be purchased here, make sure to follow them on IG because recently there have been a lot of sales!
