Good morning! Today I have a matte vs. glossy French manicure... and of course, as with most things on my blog right now, it is Valentine's themed! This is a simple look that is still festive for the holiday.
You might be thinking that this looks familiar. It is quite similar to a matte/glossy french that I did during the Christmas season! I was actually inspired by that one. I liked the outcome so much that I decided to recreate it!
The main color is Zoya Lolly, which was part of their Mod Matte collection. Lolly is hot pink and a true matte; it's not a suede like Zoya Veruschka or Zoya Savita. As a result, it is much harder to apply.
This is three coats of Lolly, and it is still kind of streaky. Up until the third coat, I also had trouble with bumps in the polish. Still though, it's pretty, yeah?
I freehanded on the tips in OPI Rumple's Wiggin', a super pale purple. I then sealed the Rumple's Wiggin' area with SV to make it extra shiny and protect it!
I really like this mani despite the trouble that Lolly gave me in application. The other two in the Zoya Mod Matte collection are Phoebe and Mitzi. Phoebe is a blue suede (again, similar to Veruschka and Savita), while Mitzi is a chartreuse true matte similar to Lolly. Hopefully I will have those up for you to see sooner or later. :)
