Those beauty trends that look really, really cool, no matter who’s wearing them? (Lookin’ at you, hair cuffs, shaggy bangs, and red lipstick.) You can officially add matte nail polish to the list. The brilliance of matte polishes is that they manage to turn even the cutesiest of colors, like baby blue, into low-key, “what, this ol’ thing?” statements. To get an extra creamy shade, mix a few drops of white polish in with your blue polish, then seal the manicure with a matte top coat.
Soft, hazy, and definitively understated, matte polishes turn any basic manicure into a legit beauty lewk.
