I bought my first matte polish from Nails Inc, Hanbury Street but I found the terracotta colour not really me so tried to tart it up a little by trying my first scotch tape mani.
I actually found it a little harder than I thought it would be as I couldn't get the tape to stick down at my cuticles, but found that by lining the edge of the tape with my cuticles I could get a straight line. My thumb's polish must have had an extra layer because the polish peeled off with the tape - oops! But I was really happy with how the lines turned out, even if I wasn't that fussed on the colours! The top coat was Leighton Denny Sex Kitten.
By the way, matte polishes really don't last!
