Quick and Easy Wish Fulfillment

This drive-by swatching is an addendum to my last post, for the reader (the blogger behind Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes) who requested to see Chi Love That Milky Way Shake with a matte topcoat. Great idea - thanks! After seeing the Chi matte, I also took it one better with a comp, because I was instantly reminded of the OPI Suedes finish.
OPI You Don't Know Jacques Suede on index, Chi Love That Milky Shake mattified on middle and ring. I used 3 coats of each, then one coat of Essie Matte About You on the Chi. The finish is the same, but the OPI has a bit more sparkle to it. Sometimes, the matte topcoats seem to add a veil to the sparkle. Still gorgeous, though! I love how delicate the Chi looks.
Your wish is my command! ☺
