Beauty School: Matte Nails

We’ve been seeing a lot of matte-finish nails in both the runways and beauty editorials lately, and we think this trend definitely deserves the spotlight going into summer and into fall.

It’s a lot easier to achieve than you think! Just apply a matte top coat (like Butter London Matte Finish Top Coat ) over your favorite colors, and voila!---you’ve got a totally of-the-moment look!

A fun way to infuse matte nails is through pattern. Apply your nail polish as usual and let it dry completely. Then, apply clear tape in any desired pattern and paint on the matte top coat. When you peel off the tape, you’re left with a subtle but cool shiny/matte pattern!
