FAQ: Matte Nail Polish
Can any nail polish be matte?
The majority of nail polishes will leave your nails shiny. Matte nail polishes are provided by some trademarks, but they can be pricey. Other methods, such as steam or cornstarch, can be used at home to achieve a matte finish on a budget.
Are matte nails better than glossy?
It’s a timeless classic. Many ladies, in fact, prefer a glossy nail to the matte trend. Glossy nails, as we all know, live longer than matte nails. If you’re searching for a new and exciting nail design this season, we recommend breaking away from the glossy nail every now and then.
Does matte nail polish need a top coat?
Since using a base and top coat for matte polishes – two guaranteed ways to make normal polish last longer, is not recommended, why not make your normal polish matte instead? Using a matte top coat is the best option in this case.
