Mad about Matte Manicures

This fall, I'm temporarily ditching my shiny polishes for a matte manicure. Matte nails were strong on fall runways and I love the quiet, sophisticated vibe they give off. Let's get into a few gloss free nail ideas to promptly adopt this season!

One color matte: It's easy to strike a perfect 10 with a deep nail color sans shine. A host of polish lines offer matte varnishes, but thanks to topcoats like Essie's Matte About You, every color of the rainbow can be mattified. Start with the striking shades that we're currently falling for.

Matte and metallic: Dark colors with gold or glitter feels particularly opulent, but feel free to get creative! So many matte and metallic digit combos will do. For a total fall look, Pair up a next level matte and metallic mani with an upgraded ponytail.




Tonal Matte and shine:  Modernize your manicure with some tonal shine on matte action. It's the perfect way to freshen up nail art or a french manicure. Black on black tuxedo nails, a half moon mani or chevrons are great ideas for showing off the matte + shine treatment.

Matte nail art: We haven't forgotten about our true nail art fans! A matte base layer is a great canvas for awesome nail designs. Hello chalkboard! The dullness of matte can lend a bit of subtlety to even the most outlandish nail art.


The matte manicure is definitely a "do" for fall. Will you be holding the shine on your mani/pedi's this fall?


For the love of hair and nails,
