Another untried and ASBMF: Matte Magic

Well today I have a combined post, I decided to use 2 untried polishes for my ASBMF challenge # 8 matte magic. I was originally going to stamp something over a matte background but I decided why not use multi colored glitter and then matte it to try and get that "magic" aspect in there :) Plus i'm still a bit hung over from last night which I did my original Untried manicure but I was already drinking when I did it... it was sooo bad that I already removed it lol.

So I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Stone Cold from the capitol Colors collection. Its a matte slate grey, I found it was a bit thick but smoothed out pretty good on the second coat.

I then did 2 coats of 365 Days of Color Explosion, it was kind of hard to fish the glitter out but once i got good coverage and matted it with NYC Matte Top Coat it looked awesome!!!
