What goes perfectly with a romantic date with your special someone? A sassy DIY Valentine’s manicure. Buuut — let’s kick it up a notch from your typical glitter/shimmer/accent finger manicure. Or, rather than kicking it up, let’s take it down a notch. Let’s go for subtlety. Let’s go matte.
Though I’m a sucker for a super glossy polish, sometimes I want something a little more understated. At those moments, a matte topcoat is my best friend. For this DIY Valentine’s manicure, I wanted to combine a gorgeous shiny red color with a matte topcoat, and add the bonus of a cutout shape: a sweet little heart.
This isn’t an in-your-face kind of manicure. At a quick glance, most people probably won’t catch how boss your nails look. But I kinda like it that way. Chic is all about being too cool to be flashy.
