Anyway what was I saying... oh yes I was deciding between just matter and matte/ shiny. At first I stuck with just matte, then the next morning I used some craft scissors with a squiggly (totally technical work BTW) edge to cut some tape. Let me tell you cutting tape with those scissors is not easy, they just do not want to cut, ugh. But finally I did get enough strips for all my nails. Then place tape on nail, paint shiny Seche Vite, pull up tape. That's it. Ok enough talk on to the pictures.
See the squiggly line in the middle of each nail... Hopefully anyway maybe not on the accent nail, it's there but hard to see. I think this would of worked better on a darker base, but oh well this is what I was working with.
Orly- Faint at heart (grey)
Ulta- Indigo-Go Girl (glitter over grey)
Ulta- Maine Attraction (teal)
China Glaze- Lorelei's Tiara (glitter over Teal)

Now on to the rest... first 4 in artificial light, last 4 in natural indirect sunlight.
The last pics were taken a few days after applying, So I think my matter was turning kinda shiny. Kills the effect, but enjoy the colors
