Matte nail designs have been super popular lately, with people trying totally unique designs and ideas, so we've gathered some of the coolest designs to share with you! Although these designs are showcased on (very) long nails, it really doesn't matter if your nails are short or long – anyone can pull off these matte nail designs.
Stores are packed full of matte shades, but you can actually make any nail polish matte simply by boiling some water, and holding freshly painted nails over hot water steam. Or, purchase a matte top coat and simply add a coat or two once your nail polish has dried.

Matte nail polish unfortunately doesn’t last as long as regular nail polish.
