 Matte Nail Polish

For making a matte nail polish you will need:

  • Corn starch
  • Toothpick
  • Nail polish
  • Saucer

Follow these simple steps

1. On the saucer pour a little bit of the nail polish.

2. On the side of the saucer pour a little bit of the corn starch. Than start adding a little bit of the corn starch in the nail polish, but don’t add too much. Mix both ingredients until you get a nice texture. You got to do this real fast so the polish won’t get dry.

3. Then use the brush from the nail polish and apply the matte nail polish on your nails that you have just made.

4. Don’t forget to clean the brush with an acetone when you are done!

    Great hack! I do have few matte nail polishes for the winter season, but I easily get bored with the same color, so this is great trick to use when you really want to put some of your favourite nail polishes and turn them into matte version. Great. Do you like it?
