China Glaze Grape Juice (matte)

China Glaze Grape Juice matteIt’s no secret I’m a huge fan of China Glaze’s Summer 2009 Summer Days collection. Therefore, I find excuses to wear these polishes quite often. I’d been dying to do a matte mani since I got butter LONDON’s matte finish top coat, so I decided to try it over Grape Juice.

I think this polish looks great matte. It looks like an OPI Suede. I think this is a fun matte look for (the last bit of) Summer.

Because this is a jelly, you have to use more coats than you would just wearing it alone when you’re going to use a matte top coat. I used 4 coats of Grape Juice before adding the matte top coat. I did have some shrinkage problems. I’m assuming it was the matte top coat, but, I’ll have to test it over some other polishes before I say for sure 🙂
