13 Days of January - Day 6 - Inspired by Pinterest - Matte/Shiny French

Hi everyone! Today is Day 6 of the 13 days of January Challenge and the prompt is Inspired by Pinterest.

I decided to do a manicure inspired by the manicure I think has to be the one I've seen repinned the most on Pinterest, this matte and shiny french manicure by Chloe's Nails. She used OPI Lincoln Park After Dark Matte and topcoat.

I decided to use a different colour but keep the idea of a matte polish then just topcoat for the tips, rather than using a shiny polish and then a matte topcoat. I chose Zoya Posh from the Matte Velvet collection, a gorgeous shimmery matte red. This is not your typical flat matte polish at all.

I used two coats of Posh and then freehanded the shiny french tips using my regular topcoat, Revlon Quick Dry.

I like how this turned out but I think the contrast between shiny and matte definitely shows better on really dark colours. If I redo this mani, I'll definitely go with a darker polish. But I think it's really classy with the red too. What do you think of it? Had you seen this mani on Pinterest? I know I definitely pinned it a loooong time ago!

Zoya polishes can be purchased from the Zoya site and various other retailers.
