I used a design with thick lines, this would allow me maximum time to stamp without it drying too fast for me. The candy stripe design on Bundle Monster plate BM20 seemed to fit the bill. So I used Zoya's Harlow as its tones worked well with the base colour.
Success! You can use mattes if you work quick. It gives a great finish too, a shiny base with a textured matte finish, very pretty. I used a TC over it though, as I wanted to bring out the sparkle in Harlow that can be seen when shiny.
The thumb was a challenge as the BM full nail designs are too small for my thumbs, so creative use of the plate was needed, angling off the nail edge worked well enough for me.
Looks like I will be buying more mattes for stamping now :o)
