Twinsie Tuesday- Missed Theme

Nothing to Disclose
Happy Twinsie Tuesday Polished Babes! Today the Twinsies are bringing you manicures from a previous Twinsie Tuesday theme that we had to miss. Well, a few weeks ago, my sister Twinsies posted Matte and Gloss combo nails, but I had so much going on at the time and did not participate that week. So today, I give you my matte and gloss combo nails.

For this mani, I began with two coats of a black creme polish. I added topcoat and waited for it to completely dry. Then, I went in with my designs. I decided to do stripes and dots, which are fairly simple. For the dots, I started by adding a matte topcoat to my ring and index fingers. I added the dots using a dotting tool and clear topcoat. 

For my pinky and middle fingers, I used striping tape and matte topcoat. I applied two coats of the matte topcoat and removed the tape while it was still wet.

I like the way this look came together, but it definitely wasn't what I initially envisioned.  I wish it would've come out a little neater, but at least it is still presentable! This is also an introduction to my newly filed nails! Those things were getting waaaay too long, so a chop down was needed. As always, I hope you like this look.
