Monday Quickie ~ Braided Matte Mani!

Hello Dahlings!
Have you ever 'misplaced' pics on your computer? Well I did! I was going to show you a new to me Indie brand, but I can't find da pics. They might still be in da gallery folder from my old phone that got transferred to my new phone, but I don't normally type up my notes until da pics are in my 'to be blogged' file & I do have da notes.
Oh well, if I ever find those pics I'll post 'em.
So instead, y'all are getting da mani I was going to post on Friday
& now my posting schedule list will have to be redone. So it goes...
 Da line up: Kleancolor Happy New Phase, Bright & Breezy,
Cosmic Blue & Madly Matte top coat
 1 coat each: p & t ~ Happy New Phase, r & m ~ Bright & Breezy, m ~ Cosmic Blue
All are 1 coaters that will stamp & went on smoothly.
 After applying da base colors, I went into a braiding frenzy.
This is before tc...
...and with 1 coat of Madly Matte.
Since da polishes all have a matte finish to start with, adding matte tc didn't make much difference visually (tho' Madly Matte does work very well over glossy polishes). However I strongly recommend using Seche Vite (or your fast dry tc of choice) 1st, then applying da matte tc cuz I had tip wear in less than 24 hours.
I got these polishes on Amazon for mega cheap with no s/h. I mean like around $1 a bottle cheap! Yeah, Kleancolor polishes tend to have a distinct aroma, but they do work well for nail art & when you buy them in lots on Amazon, you can save buku bucks.
Here's your Ciri spam:
 Bored, bored, bored...(he's staring at da door)
When will Paw get home...I'm BORED!
Sorry! I had to work this past weekend & was too pooped to post Does It Stamp?
...tho I did get some testing done.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the colours - and they go so well together too.

  2. Love this braided mani...beautiful colors. And now I want to see your hair, lol!

    1. Thanks! Alas, I didn't get any pics of the hair this mani went with...I just had too much else going on. Basically it was bright sapphire blue with random streaks ranging from blue violet to lavender due to left over color from last summer's My Lil Pony hair. The silver shows up as the dye colors fade. lol
