Hi everyone, my name is Joi, licensed manicurist, and today I’m going to show you all how to apply matte nail polish. So, I have my polish, and then I also have a matte top coat – you can actually get this at your local drugstore or beauty supply store. A couple of things: There are actually polishes out there that start off matte. If you don’t have one of those, then you could follow up with a topcoat, which is basically going to remove the shine from your nail polish. So, just to show you how this works, I’m applying a regular nail polish – has a little bit of shine in it. And then, I’m going to show you the effect of the matte top coat. So, you can see it’s still just a little bit shiny right now. I give that a second to dry, and then I will follow up here with this matte top coat. This is something that’s kind of cool and trendy right now for you to do, or, you know, it’s for people that don’t want to draw a lot of attention to their hands, so they want to kind of tone down that shine just a little bit. Okay. So, when you put it on at first, it’s still going to be just a little bit shiny. You give it just a few minutes, and it will start reducing the shine of the polish. Okay. So, give it just a couple of seconds. And, it starts taking that shine down. So, there you go, you have your matte nail. I hope this was helpful to everyone, and thank you for watching, my name is Joi.
