Matte Glitter, Y U SO PRETTY?

One of my absolute favorite looks is matte glitter. I just think it is so pretty and so unique. I was feeling a bit uninspired looking at my stash, so I decided to go with a nice matte glitter look.

I used Orly Frolic, which is a bright purple/pink crème. It's also nearly impossible to photograph. Last time I swatched it, the pictures showed a creamy medium purple. However, it looks very fuchsia in these pictures, and on my hands. A chameleon, I'd say. The glitters are Sally Hansen Ice Queen. The Sally Hansen was pretty sheer, so I layered 3 thin coats on top of Frolic. Everything has been mattefied with Orly Matte Top.

So, what do you think? I really like this combo. Matte glitter always makes me happy :D
