I decided no to give up on this mani. I just love the way it looks on me. I did a clean up with a brush (like MeganChair and Lacquerized do it) and I dare to say it looks way better now. =)
It's still far from perfection, but I think it's good enough.
With top coat. Look how sparkly Matte is Murder is with TC. Beautiful!
And two more photos without top coat (made in Crappy).
Thanks for looking!
