Backstage at NYFW: Matte Mani Tips at Band of Outsiders
Matte nails have taken center stage this fashion week. I totally love the muted look, but when I try doing it myself, it never seems to come out right. So when talking to Katie Jane Hughes the Color Ambassador for Butter London about the white matte nails at the Band of Outsiders show, I thought I'd see if she had any expert tips for us DIY ladies. Hughes painted each model's nails white and toped it with a matte top coatand sure enough she had some advice for getting ours looking (almost) as good as hers.
Expert tip: If you are using a matte top coat, always use more than you think you need, and be sure not to take off too much of the color underneath.
Do you like your nails shiny or matte?
