I initially started off with China Glaze Midnight Run (deep purple) design and used Matte Magic to make some alternating lines. Unfortunately, that only lasts until you wash your hands and then it starts looking really bad. But, I took some pictures of it and then decided to keep it, paint some flowers on it, and just put a top coat over and call it a day. I actually used acrylic paint for the flowers which was a first time. Actually, it was way easier than using polish. So, for more detailed work, I might use that going forward.
