SoFlaJo - Black Beauty

Today's post is heavier then the usual because I really love this mani and I couldn't decide which of the photos to take off... So be prepared ;-)

It all started with Kim's V-Day idea of mixing matte and holo. So I started this mani with one amazing matte polish - Black Beauty by SoFlaJo. Black Beauty is part of the new Matte Love Collection. It is a gorgeous holographic shimmer in matte black base. It is very special in it's look, a dream to apply and I cannot think of anything less then perfect to say about this polish. This one is a MUST to any collection!
It needs two easy coats for full opacity. This polish is completely self leveled and as you can see - there are absolutely no brush strokes or any other issue except pure beauty. Since I wanted to keep the matte finish, I didn't use any top coat but as you can see in the close-up picture below, you can see the holographic shimmer even without any top coat!

I then used Amy - Nail Venturous's idea for the dots and I stamped them with white polish and Konad plate number m79. I'm sorry I forgot to take a picture of my stamped nails but I hope I do make up for it with all the other pictures... The stamping was only used as a template so I can see where to put the dots. So  then I used my loyal dotting tool and I covered the white dots with some holographic polish. The colors I used are Color Club Eternal Beauty (Purple), Color Club Over The Moon (Blue) and China Glaze L8R G8R (Green).
