Today’s Artsy Wednesday theme is Matte and Glossy Combined. This is what I did:

The base is Ciate Paparazzi, another English polish that ilexica sent me. On its own it’s a deliciously vampy blood red translucent creme that looks like a blood bag, but when I matted it with Rimmel Lycra Pro Mattifying Topcoat, it looked like chocolate… yum! I stamped over it with a variety of BM and Mash patterns with a regular topcoat. It was subtle but funky – I think if I freehanded instead, it’d be a bit easier to see.

What would you have done with this theme? Let me know! 🙂
