NOTD: OPI Teenage Dream + m63 +Matte Magic

My sleep cycle is so messed up on the weekends LOL.  I meant to post this last night, Friday, but here it is Saturday ... or really Sunday morning.  I've had this on for over 4 days, but it hasn't been exactly the same the entire time.  I started off with just OPI Teenage Dream, from the Katy Perry collection, on it's own.
 
 
Pics do not do the glitter justice.  I took a vid, which is a little better but still doesn't convey the full impact:
 
 
For the 2nd day I stamped with Black special polish & Konad plate m63, but didn't take too many pics:
 
 
And for the 3rd day I topped that with Matte Magic - it was really cool how the holo glitter still managed to shine though the matte-ifying, almost more like flakies than glitter, I think because they were larger than the rest of the glitter:


Thanks for reading =)

  6. How many coats of Teenage Dream did you have to do to get that kind of opacity? I typically put it on top of a baby pink to get full coverage with no VNL.

  10. How do you get your thumb nails so long girl? Mine always break after they get a certain length, which is long to most people, but not for me. I need talons like your thumbs, hehe.

  13. Gorgeous! What Konad plate/design did you use? I would like to know how to get that all over effect with each nail. My sister and I are considering a Konad, but it is daunting. lol

  18. OMG the polish alone with your skin tone looks great! Love the Konad on it too. You make Konad look so easy! Still can't get it to work for me. So I admire from afar :-). Gotta get that polish!

  20. Hi, I loved this look! Do you know if China Glaze still sells the Matte Magic top coat? I haven't been able to find it online when I looked recently. I wonder if any other brand out there makes one because I really want to get one to change up my manicures. Thanks to you I have started back to doing them more often! :)

  21. How did you stamp the entire nail so perfectly several times? The Kinad image couldn't possibly be large enough to cover your entire long nail... Please share!
