A Very Cool Use for Mattte Top Coat

Are you a fan of the matte nail trend? I have to admit I struggle to appreciate it over a solid color of polish — so much of my joy in polish comes from the luster and shine.

The matte nail trend really didn’t click for me until I understood how to use it to create visual texture. Using a matte top coat over foil, glitter, or anything metallic adds a wicked dimension that makes your eye see a texture that you cannot feel. It’s so very cool!

In case you have been watching this trend from the sidelines like me, here is a tutorial video to get your #naileyes working so that we can keep our clients’ nails in the now!
