DIY Matte Nail Polish Tutorial

All you need are:

Clear Base Coat
Nail Polish Color
Pot of boiling water
Top Coat (optional)

Heat up water over your stovetop. While that is heating up, you can put your clear base coat. And your nail polish color. Let that dry, then apply a second coat of your color. By this time, your water should be boiling. Carefully hover you fingers over the water. Be very careful, because the steam is strong & can burn. You can also just turn off the stove top at this point & hover your nails over. You’ll immediately notice a matte hue to the color. You’re basically done! Make sure you let the color air dry.

You can see Matte & Shiny finger in the above picture. You can use a top coat to change your matte nail back to shiny. I used it to create a French manicure look with the matte & shiny.
