Excited to share this fiery 3:2 fall manicure!

On my thumb, index and pinky I used Zoya Ember, Ember is a beautiful liquid metal red.  I absolutely love metallic polishes with a matte top coat.

On my middle and ring fingers I made DIY nail decals using Ember and Mirajane.  Mirajane is an ultra neon new from Zoya this summer.  To make my decals I applied Ember to my Bundle Monster Lotus mat and then took both colors and swirled; like a water marble but without water.  I let those dry and then applied to my nail wet with clear top coat and did some clean up.

This is the end result.  In my head I envisioned FIRE and ICE.

Here it is comparing matte and shine top coat ❤

I personally like the matte better.

I had a lot of fun creating this look.  This is another 3:2 mani.  For my 3 I used Sinful Colors Demin n Bling KARGO.  This is a textured blue denim polish which dries matte ❤ I did use a clear top coat on my pinky for some shine.

For my 2 I created some dry marble decals on my bundle monster mat.  Used SC Kargo and SC Trend Matters Angel Buttercup.

Once my decals dried using a clear top coat I applied the decals to my nails, trimmed access and cleaned up with a small paint brush and acetone.  Love this technique; I have not mastered the water marble so this is an easy way to get that look without all the hassle and headache.

I really love the final result ❤  Still drool over matte textured polishes 🙂
