Lilac Half Matte Mani

Diagonal matte nail design

To be honest, this is a really good picture, because in reality it is really hard to notice that half of the nail is matte. So, if you decide to recreate this design, please, be aware that the result won’t be as noticeable as on the picture.

By the way, on the right hand I made the same diagonal design, but I swapped matte and glossy parts. Unluckily, it looked even less noticeable than the design on my left hand.

Here I used lilac nail polish Barbara Daly — Carousel, matte top coat Bourjois — So Matt, glossy top coat Sally Hansen: Insta-Dri — Anti-Chip Top Coat and nail striping tape to help myself paint straight diagonal lines.
