silver shatter over matte

This is quite an old notd, I totally forgot about it.
This was my first time using a matte polish, Avon matte enamel in Violetta with a silver shatter from Icing over it.  I love this combo! It looked amazing all matte but I forgot to take pictures before the top coat.

Had a hard time pairing the silver shatter with other polishes but over a matte it works like a charm. The consistency of the shatter is very weird, almost like wet sand, on the thick side and dries quick. The consistency makes it glop a bit around the mouth of the bottle but you can gently push it all back inside with the brush, close it, roll the bottle and it mixes back with the rest of the polish.

Violetta is an amazing color. Its a vivid jewel-tone purple with very fine blue and fuchsia glitter. I like the fact that the formula is tick, there is no streaking and dries pretty fast too. I've heard that matte polishes chip quickly; specially this one; so if you want to preserve the original finish I would recommend using a matte topcoat.
