Blue and Silver Plaid




Hi everyone! Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is "Inspired by a Pattern." I decided to try using this plaid stamping image to create some blue plaid nails for fall. I saw this mani by Sara / The Call of Beauty and loved the look of the matte base with metallic stamping so I gave it a try too. 

I started with two coats of OPI Unfor-greta-bly Blue as my base (shown without top coat). Unfor-greta-bly Blue is a medium-dark shimmery inky blue. Formula was good. Not a particularly unique polish though in my opinion.


Next I added Deborah Lippmann Flat Top. I actually MUCH prefer Unfor-greta-bly Blue matte... I love how the shimmer creates a suede finish when matte... And also how it's darker at the edgesI'm really liking matte finishes this fall!


Then I stamped with Essie No Place Like Chrome and Born Pretty Store plate BP-L013. Use my code SL10K31 for 10% off!


What do you think of this mani? Do you prefer Unfor-greta-bly Blue shiny or matte?
