Obsessed with Matte nail polish at the moment! Essie matte top coat- makes any color matte. Great to do matte and gloss of same color without buying double the polish! This stuff is great. Also Essie base coat.
French tips using scotch tape. I have done it with circle stickers but this might be nice for straight cut nails. This person wore the base coat for a day or two and then did the french tips to extend out her manicure.
