ASBMF Challenge: Day 8 - Matte Magic

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this challenge, other than the obvious, matte.  After a little digging in the Helmer I came up with an idea!

I started with 2 coats of NYC City Sweets Pink

I had a hard time adding "magic" to this design and then I remembered that I had a Faery stamp!  Faeries are magically!  Using RA112 and Revlon Hazy I added my Faeries.

Magic sparkles so of course I had to add glitter! I applied 2 coats of Spoiled Jewelry Heist.  This is such a pretty light pink glitter with hints of blue, green and gold.  It really is gorgeous in the bottle but hard to apply.  You don't get much on your nails. :( But it was perfect for this design.  It added the magic but didn't cover the Fairy.

To make sure everything was nice and smooth I added a coat of SV.

My last step was to turn it matte.  I used 2 coats of Essie Matte About You.

At first I didn't like the design, but it really grew on me.  I love the softness of the design and the glitter is just WOW!!


  1. Cute!! I LOVE mattified glitter :)

  2. I would die if you did my mani, this is just to die for!

  3. Great idea! Magic fairies and glitter is a great combo! :)

  4. This mani is beautiful, I love it! :)

  5. This is really pretty! I love it with the stamp on top!

  6. This mani is so cute! Fairies + glitter = lovely x :-)
