Anyway, here is the tutorial and enjoy my rather comical attempt at Matte nails!
You will need:
- Base Coat
- Top Coat (I like Black for this.)
- A Mug
- A Kettle
Paint your nails with a base coat. While this is drying switch on the kettle to boil.
Paint on the top coat.
Immediately after painting one hand pour the boiling hot water into a mug.
Hold you hand over the water. And for the love of god DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT PUT YOUR FINGERS IN THE WATER!!! Also, watch out for the steam, it can get pretty hot just holding your hand there. If you are not old enough please ask an adult for help. If you are having to ask yourself 'am i old enough?', you probably are not! - Sorry if this sounds patronising i just don't want someone complaining they have burnt themselves! :)
Now hold your hand there until the varnish turns matte. (You may have to pull your hand away and let the condensation drip away to see if it has turned matte yet.)
Wait a minute or so to make sure it is completely dry.
And finally, you'r nails have been transformed! There is your completed matte look. :)
Next time, well there wont be a next time... I think i am just going to purchase 'Matte Magic' by China Glaze!
If you try this let me know how it goes!
Have a nice day :)
