So I learned something today...you have to be careful when you use matte topcoat over stamping.
I started with a base of Spellbound Nails The Knight Bus, from her Harry Potter Book 3 collection (see my full review here):

Then I stamped using UberChic Beauty 10-02, and Messy Mansion Carbon:

Then I used a matte topcoat...and discovered that even if you're careful, a matte topcoat can smudge your manicure:

Yes, it only smudged a little, but still. So what I learned from this is, always use regular topcoat over your stamping before you use matte topcoat! Even so, I do love this design, it has a peaceful stained-glass feel that I love.
Happy stamping and careful matte-ing!
