Most nail polishes will give your nails a glossy finish. It is very fashionable these days to have a matte or non-shiny nail color. Some nail polish companies make products with a matte finish, but these can be expensive. There are other methods you can use at home to create a matte finish cheaply, such as using steam or cornstarch.

     Get a piece of foil or wax paper. Put a few drops of nail polish on it.

    • Obtain a toothpick and a box of cornstarch.
    • Take a very small amount of cornstarch and mix it into the nail polish.
    • Do this quickly, as the nail polish will dry out.
    • The nail polish will be thicker than normal but this is ok.
    • Make sure the polish isn’t too thick or it won’t spread on the nail properly.
