Sometimes, I just can't decide whether to go with a shiny nail or a matte nail.
So last night I thought, why can't I do both?
After painting my full nail with a shiny red polish and armed with a quick drying top-coat, I placed a piece of tape down the center of each nail. I then applied Essie's, "matte about you" over the exposed half of the nail and pulled the tape off. Voilà! A classic nail with a modern matte twist.
They went fabulously with my striped mittens.
Essie's "a list" is a beautiful classic red.
