Indian Lacquer Lovers Nail Challenge (#ILLnailChallenge) Week 10- Stripes/Lines

Hello guys!!! So this is the 10th week of the Indian Lacquer Challenge and the theme for this week was 'Stripes/Lines'. So here is the mani I created for the same-
It is a very simple design and the colors I have used are-
1. Kleancolor - #157 'Metallic White'
2. Colorbar- #15 'Exclusive'
3. Acrylic color- Turquoise Blue
4. Brown Color Glitters

After applying base coat I applied two coats of metallic white color and let it dry. After that I applied colorbar 'Exclusive' which a light teal in color. The color has been given to me as Diwali swap gift by a very sweet friend of mine- Rajani Bhatt. I applied the color in diagonal checkered style and let it dry, then with a a thin brush dipped in the turqouise blue acrylic color, I made thin lines between the checkered design. Applied a top coat and then put glitters (which I had bought form a local stationary shop) where the lines intersected while the top coat was still wet. I then again applied a top coat to seal in the design.

I also applied a matte top coat just to see which one looks best- matte or shiny and here is the pic with matte top coat. The matte top coat is of China glaze called 'Matte Magic'.

I can't decide which one looks best so you guys help me!!! Hope you liked the design, do let me know by commenting below.
