Are Matte Nails In Style

Matte nails are in style, especially in trending colors like red, navy, brown, and muted greens.

Matte nails are a unique and different take on the usual high-gloss finishes. It’s sleek, sophisticated, and can be more subtle, especially for the workplace. It also makes a nice contrast when using both glossy and matte paint in the same nail art, even when it’s the same shade.

All you need to do is tell your nail technician that you want a matte finish. To achieve this look with nail polish, you’ll need to either select specific matte formulas or add a matte topcoat. When it comes to gel or dip powder nails, you can still get the look with a matte topcoat that goes over the finished product. If in doubt, take along photos of the look you want.
