Glossy & Matte Nail Art Design

When you want to play with contrasts, try to make such an amazing manicure. A bit of glossy and matte polish and your fancy manicure is ready to rock.

You will need:
– nail base coat;
– nail top coat;
– nail matte polish;
– adhesive tape.

Directions: Start by applying the nail base coat. After drying, paint your nails using the matte polish. Wait for the paint to dry, then apply a strip of adhesive tape at an angle of 45 °, on each nail. Cover the tips of the nails with  nail top coat. Do not wait for the complete drying to remove the tape. Do it carefully at the middle of the time. Now, your glossy- matte manicure is ready. Enjoy!

  1. Brilliant idea! Thank you for sharing. I’m in love with the colors you used! What brands and color names did you use in the photo?


  2. Cool tutorial! So you did the whole nail with the matte THEN taped then went back with more polish or just a top coat and it returned it to shiny?

    I tried this and had less than great results but I just went off the picture but I came to the site to learn where I might have gone wrong!

    Do you ever have trouble with the matte coat diluting the base?
