For years now, Matte texture has been going strong as one of THE most used finishes in nail fashion today. From runway to realway, matte texture doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon. However…. does anyone else have a love/hate relationship with matte finishes or just us? Let us break down all the feelz….
We LOVE how matte takes darker polish and gives it a bit more toughness and how it blends lighter colors in with our own skin texture.
We HATE how matte ‘seems’ to take longer to dry and also how quickly it chips due to it’s chemical composition.
But alas, we have the Nail Streetz, tested & proven solution, to turn your love/hate to a love/love realtionship, immediately. Let’s do this!
Step 1. After applying your basecoat and 2 color coats, apply a shiny, quick drying top coat. We recommend this one here. It dries super fast and has great longevity.
Step 2. Let the shiny top coat dry for at least 5 minutes. It’s important to let the fast drying top coat dry, so don’t skip this step.
Step 3. Apply Matte Top Coat, thin and even, over the shiny top coat. This matte top coat here, seems to dry the fastest and gives even coverage.
Step 4. Let that dry for 15 minutes.
Viola! This #NSQuickTip will let you enjoy your smudge & chip free matte nail look, for a solid 5-7 days!
*NSQuickTip- Using oils and cremes can make the matte coat shiny. After using these products, soak a cotton pad in rubbing alcohol and wipe the creme/oil off your nails. The matte look will show it’s beauty, once again!
