Once you go matte . . .

Hi Everyone!! Happy Friday!!! And if you're in the states happy three day weekend woot!!!!  I'm going to be doing the faux camping this weekend.  Like every Memorial Day Weekend it's not supposed to be warm.  So instead of tent camping in the cold and damp we are driving to and from Saturday and Sunday to enjoy all the fun of camping without the misery LOL!  Call me a cheater I don't care, I'm old and just don't want to stay over in a cold tent!!

I can't wait though!  We are having tacos one night and pulled pork the other!!!  OOOOH yummy!  I'm in charge of guacamole and Auntie Laurie's noodle salad, and OF COURSE I'm bringing out some polish to do some mani's and pedi's.

Today I have a super lovely mani to show you if I do say so myself!  I mixed up some gorgeous matte with a gorgeous textured polish and move over Babs and Judy Garland because a STAR IS BORN!

I used my Kiko 646 from the Kiko Sugar Mat collection and the white is the gorgeous White Sensation from Soflajo!
I super love this white matte!!
I stamped using the lovely (and one of my all time faves) BM323 and DRK-A

I switched it up later with some topcoat!!  I love the Kiko with a topcoat almost as much as alone!
Look at all that sparkly goodness!

What do you think?  Do you like it better matte or shiny?

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you all have a fantastic day!!  AND Happy and Safe Memorial Day weekend to my US readers!


  1. I like the matte the best! And now I'm super happy that Wayne convinced me to get the black sugar mat... It looks fab on you!

  2. Pretty! I love the matte <3

  3. I am loving the matte and I am also loving your "faux camping" idea. I am going to have to suggest this next time someone asks me to go camping! I don't do cold, damp tents either! Love this idea though! LOL.

    1. Lol Kelly we must be kindred spirits! It's supposed to be sunny but only a high of 60 which means it really could be only 40! I'll be close to the campfire for sure!

  4. Very pretty, love the mani :D

  5. I can't choose shiny or matte. I love the look of both.

  6. Gorgeous! I love the black and white! :)
