The Reverse Matte Manicure How-To







Nail art need not be intimidating. Here's a quick, simple way to get in on the trend that anyone can do. All you need is a bottle of nail polish and a clear matte topcoat. Here, Lindsey started with two coats of Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Particuliere. We love this shade of gray. Once dry, paint the top portion of each nail with a coat of clear matte polish. For contrast, leave the bottom of the nail alone, so it remains shiny. We like Essie Matte About You finisher, which was used here. You could also try reversing it, leaving the tips alone and painting the bottom portion matte. See our Instagram shot of Lindsey's nails done this way here.

Now, how easy is that?
Happy Wednesday!
