Matte suede

Hey everyone! So I had a huge and ugly exam yesterday and I was planning to blog and do my nails afterwards. But I was so tired I ended up laying in bed all afternoon and watching TV shows (btw if you haven't checked out "Once Upon a Time" yet make sure you do cause it's awesome). Again I have to apologize for my absence and say that I do hope to post more this week, although I still have another exam coming up. Ok, now let's get to the nails!

One of the polish finishes that I long for and is so hard to find around here is suede. So one day I thought "What's suede anyway? It's a matte shimmer!". I stole borrowed this shimmery gold polish from my mom and popped it on. Then added two coats of my Color Club Matte-ified and there it was. Suede! 

The polish is actually H&M Golden Treasure, a gold shimmer from this year's fall collection. It's a color I wouldn't probably wear on it's own just because gold nails are not my style. But I was surprised by how much I liked this manicure. The polish applied very well, opaque in two coats and fast drying. 

Here's a close-up to better show you the finish I ended up with. I think this is the perfect fall manicure and it actually got me lemming even more for the Barry M foils, which I plan to use for stamping but also try as a full mani. 

So what do you think of my little combo? Do you know any other fun ways to use a matte top coat?
