Happy Monday, reader! Today’s look was an experiment in combining matte and glossy finishes to create some texture, and I think I did well. My polish here is Monster Polish‘s What’s Wrong With This Jumper?; I used Seche Vite for the glossy elements.
I swatched this polishes ages ago, and I swore that when I did a proper manicure with it, I would take advantage of its natural matte finish. It’s a beautiful polish either way, so I thought doing this would give it the best of both worlds; you get the most holo on the shiny parts, but the matte softens it. This is the kind of nail art this polish was meant for (though maybe not this execution).
Unfortunately, this has already started to chip. I should have used a coat of top coat before the last coat, and ultimately, before I added the nail art, but I’m running low and need to conserve what little I have. I definitely plan to try this again in the future with another beautiful matte polish.
Monster Polishes are for sale in their online shop.
This is a really cool looking mani!! Sorry it’s chipping already though 🙁
So cool! It’s like basket weaving! I love the effect you created.

Beats me how you made that gorgeous weave pattern so perfectly! Love it! I could wear the pattern on every polish forever!
The combination of finishes makes for pretty awesome nail art! It’s subtle but so pretty!

That’s an interesting texture. Have you tried this on polish without any glitter? I bet it would look fantastic!
That is so cool! I love the textured look.
I like the texture effect you gave it with the vinyl. Really cool concept.
