Help Me Do Nail Art!

So I've decided that because my nails are long and gorgeous, I'm going to help keep them long and strong by putting on some nail polish. I have fallen in love with the half-moon manicure and would love to attempt it tonight. Here are ze questions:

1. What colors should I do? I don't actually have any nail polish at home save for a free copper glitter polish. People keep saying the half moon looks lumpy on the rest of the nail if you put glitter polish down first (as the half moon) and I don't want long glittery copper nails. So! I was thinking maybe shiny mint and matte black? Shiny mint and matte gold? But I am really open to suggestions because I'm not that great at coordinating colors :(

2. I've gotten instructions online and I'm already headed to Staples so I'm gonna grab some paper reinforcement stickers. What else can I do to make the manicure look more professional?

3. What brands (that I can get at a drugstore) are good? I hardly ever wear nail polish so something that covers well in as few coats as possible would be great! Also I've heard that there is a mattefying topcoat but also matte nail polishes. Which is better?
