The latest and most exciting trend in the nail polish fashion world is the new matte nail polish. Unlike your typical manicure finish, the matte finish means a polish that is completely devoid of shine.
You can buy color mattes, but I think the more cost-friendly option is to buy a matte top coat. It makes more sense to buy one bottle of top coat to use with every shade of nail polish, then to buy multiple colors.
Applying a Matte Top Coat:
The application of a matte top coat is a little different than a normal top coat. While a shiny top coat can camouflage most application mistakes, a matte top coat does the opposite, it will magnify mistakes. Put it on and then let it dry.
One of my favorite things to do, is to do a glitter polish and with a matte coat over it. This is an especially good look during the holidays.
