There are four ways you can make matte nail polish at home using regular polish…
You can always purchase a matte top coat which quickly turns your regular polish into matte, but why spend money when you can do the same thing at home
Take a regular polish in a mixing dish. Take equal quantity of cornflour and mix it with the polish using a toothpick…Apply this mixture and you will see that it gives a matte finish!!
Apply your regular polish and while its still wet sprinkle some cornflour on it(Make sure you cover the entire nail with cornflour).This process is something similar with what we did in the salt nail art but here,instead of using salt we use cornflour. Allow the polish to dry and then hold your finger under running water. You will see that your polish looks matte now
Take an old bottle of top coat and add cornflour to the bottle with the help of a toothpick..Shake it well.
This can be used exactly like the matte top coat available in markets..
Apply one coat of your polish and let it dry..Apply another coat and while it’s still wet, hold it on top of boiling water for few minutes. Make sure you don’t burn yourself, so do this carefully
The steam makes your regular polish turn matte!!magical right? 😛
So if you are bored while boiling water for your tea, just grab your nail polish and start your matte manicure 😛 Saves a lot of time!
These are four simple techniques which can be done quickly!
