I didn't think I had a thing for matte polishes, really. Then, the Leather collex from Sinful Colors came out, and I'm in love with them all.
This one is probably my fave: Strapped. Awesome sea-green jelly matte. Like, whoa.
It can be a little tricky doing nail art with mattes, because they dry really fast. I've used Sinful Colors Cold Leather in a wide stripe over Strapped, and you can see where some of the stripes get a little thick.
The magic of a nice, thick, glossy topcoat like Seche Vite is that it blends out some of the texture, and all you see now is a glossy blue stripe.
The white stripes around the blue just make me think of my 'preppy' days back in high school, with the popped collars on my polo shirts.

Matte, or glossy? Punk or Preppy?
