Sephora by OPI Metro Chic Matte with Sinful Fiodora

KittytoKaren this post is especially for you, since you wanted to see Metro Chic Matte =P This was my first request and I couldn't disappoint. 
This time I remembered to take pictures of the polish in the matte stage, so there are lots of pictures to come.
This was 2 coats over a Barielle Natural Nail Camouflage, I need all the help I can get with Matte polishes, they show every single imperfection your nails have!
Of course I had to put a top coat on it. Metro Chic is a very pretty color, very different from the colors that I tend to use. This was 2 coats, and I think my application improved over the one I had yesterday with Domestic Goddess. 
I took the first picture so you could tell the difference that the top coat makes on the color. I still don't like these mattes, they are too flat, and chalky.
I felt it needed something so I wanted to try Konading something, I used plate M63 with Sinful Fiodora (which I swatched for you last week)
The perfect title for my finished manicure is SUBTLE!!! This is an understatement. I must be getting good with Konad if I am showing you pictures of my right hand! The first picture is without a top coat on the design, so you can see it. Once I added the top coat the design melded into Metro Chic. Although it looks decent it was not what I was looking for. I must try this with a bright color, or even black!
There is a reason why I photograph my left hand... 
it looks so much better than THIS wreck!
I hope you all enjoyed this Misadventure =P
