Artsy Wednesday - Matte & Shiny

Hi lovelies! Today's Artsy Wednesday theme is Matte & Shiny nails! I didn't want to go for the popular shiny black with matte tip look, but now i'm thinking I probably should have as mine didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped for! I opted for a bit of an experimental side for this and chose two jellies to work with; China Glaze - Ride The Waves (from the new Neon 2012 Collection, swatched here) and OPI - Guy Meets Gal-Veston, a coral-orange jelly from the Texas Collection. I alternated fingers. I applied 2 coats of each on every finger and 1 coat of Essie's - Matte About You on every finger except my ring finger as an accent nail.

Don't forget to check out the other lovely ladies participating in this week's Artsy Wednesday!
