Hot for Fall: Matte Nail Tutorial

Matte finish has been a hot trend in beauty from lipstick to eye shadow.  A look we absolutely love this season is matte nail polish!  It's easy to transform any shade into a matte finish with OPI Matte Top Coat.

For our final Think Pink tutorial, we’ll help you create a matte pink manicure AND we’re giving you a bonus tutorial!

Think Pink: Matte Pink Manicure

Though it looks like it may be a little difficult, this look is actually really easy.  Just apply your base coat to clean nails as you would normally, followed by two applications of your color coat.  The base coat will keep the color from chipping.  For this vibrant pink look, we recommend OPI La Paz-itively Hot or I’m Indi-a Mood for Love.  For best application, apply the color to each nail in three strips, starting in the middle then painting each side.  Let your color coat dry, then apply your OPI Matte Top Coat.

And now, our bonus look:  Matte Black French Manicure

Matte Black French Manicure Tutorial

Again, start with your base coat on clean nails, then apply two coats of OPI Black Onyx.  Once it dries, apply one coat of Matte Top Coat over the whole nail.  Let that dry completely.  Using your Black Onyx again, apply a thin line across the tip of each nail.  Since it’s black on black, you won’t have to worry as much about being super precise.  But, if you’re like me, and know you’ll probably mess up somehow, you can simply put clear tape on the part of the nails that will stay matte, then apply the Black Onyx to the tips.  This technique would be beautiful and chic with other dark nail colors too.
                                                                                         
We hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial.  If there is a certain beauty look you need help creating, let us know!

Until next time… stay tuned and stay beautiful!
