Sometimes you have to show the world a little attitude. This week I chose to do that with black matte nails. I usually keep my fingernails bare and leave the fancy stuff for my toe nails, but this time I thought, why not? I had just trimmed my nails short and they needed a little something.
Create Your Own Black Matte Nails
To get the look I started with a base coat of clear polish. Black nail polish is notorious for chipping – a clear base coat helps prevent that. Next I applied two coats of Maybelline Black Matte Polish. I then added a little embellishment from the Kiss Nail Art Collection to my thumbs to give it a little sparkle. Unfortunately, if you use a top coat you lose the matte finish. I’ll have to see if there is a top coat product out there that is suitable for matte finishes. If you know of one, comment and let me know! 🙂
