Teal Tuesdays...Glossy/Matte

Teal Tuesdays Challenge:  Glossy/Matte

I was stumped by this challenge fumbling around trying to come up with an idea.  For some reason when I think of a matte I think only black looks good matted.  I thought about mattifying my teal color but for some reason I didn't want to try that.  I'm pretty pleased kinda sorta but, it took me several tries to get it looking right.  I had bubbling issues, not applying neatly I guess ♪it's just one of them days♪  You know what I'm talking about.  Ha!

I wanted the matte to last so I layered on a coat of China Glaze Matte Magic for extra protection.
