Here, I wanted to try my Orly Matte Top Coat, so I painted my nails a midnight blue, topped them with the matte coat and then painted on a french tip. Not bad, but I found the matte coat wore off as the day progressed and the "shiny" came back. Oddly enough, I tried a cheap matte coat I bought at Wal-mart on the other hand, and it lasted longer than the expensive Orly.
These Mickey nails were cute, from this YouTube video. I had a nail glue incident right before this, which is funny NOW, but a little panic-inducing when it happened. (stuck two fingers together. That stuff is NO JOKE.) Weirdly enough, I like my right hand better, and I drew that with my left hand (not left handed.)
