First, Cleopatra is a yellower version of Medallion:
(sorry for the state of my cuticles!)
The glitters aren't *quite* as dense as Medallion so I think it would take 4 coats to create a thick enough coat to cover your nails. I had 3 coats on in the picture and there are some areas where you can see the nail bed still.
Fortune Teller took some getting used to, as I'm not accustomed to wearing black polish. Swatch below is without any topcoat. I think it would look gorgeous if I had used Seche Vite on top to give it a super glossy shine.
I didn't think of using Seche Vite because I wanted to use the Matte Magic top coat on top and test its wearability. Matte Magic goes on glossy but dries down matte. It doesn't protect the polish though, on the contrary I found that the polish was easily dented. The topcoat seemed to wear off easily too with just 1 coat - I would try 2 coats next time to see if it wears better. Or, maybe 1 coat Seche Vite (glossy) on top then 1 coat of Matte Magic on top...hmmm
Anyway, I prefer Fortune Teller matte more than glossy - the matte effect makes the black look more classy than regular shiny black.
Another shot to capture the matte finish:
I picked up Matte Magic at Sally's Beauty Supply for CDN$3.99 member price same as a regular China Glaze polish. However the bottle is much smaller than the regular polishes:
Still, its a nice product to have around to take advantage of the matte trend without buying a new set of matte colours! I doubt I would finish even this small bottle anyway since I don't get to wear polish that often.
Did you try any matte polishes yet? Or matte top coats? Which ones are you enjoying?
