If you’re on the hunt for an unusual manicure for Christmas, just like I am, here’s a tip for you – try out matte nails!

In my opinion, Matte Christmas nails are a great way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your holiday look. And that’s exactly what I’m looking for an occasion like Christmas.

On top of that it tends to last longer than its glossy counterparts. It doesn’t reflect light as much, which means that any chips or imperfections are less noticeable.

Red Matte Nails

Red is a classic christmas holiday color and looks great in a matte finish. A deep, rich red shade is perfect for those who want a bold statement, while a lighter, more muted shade is a great option for a more understated look. Adding some red glitter or a Santa accent nail can also add some extra holiday cheer.

Why I love Matte Christmas Nails

Glitter and Sparkle in Matte Christmas Nails

While matte finishes are typically associated with a lack of shine, that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little sparkle to your holiday nails. One popular way to incorporate glitter and sparkle into my matte Christmas nails is by adding a glitter accent nail.

Another way to incorporate glitter into your matte Christmas nails is by using a glittery topcoat. This will give your nails a subtle sparkle while still maintaining the matte finish.

So matte doesn’t mean that the nails are boring.

Matte French Manicure for Christmas

How do you make your nails look matte?

To make your nails look matte, you can use a matte topcoat or apply cornstarch to your nails after painting them. Simply brush on the cornstarch and then dust it off for a matte finish. You can also try using a matte nail polish instead of a glossy one.

Is matte or glossy nails better?

It depends on personal preference and the occasion. Matte nails are more subtle and sophisticated, while glossy nails are more glamorous and eye-catching. Matte nails are great for everyday wear, while glossy nails are perfect for special occasions or when you want to make a statement.

What happens when you put matte over gitter?

When you put a matte topcoat over glitter nail polish, it will reduce the shine and sparkle of the glitter, giving it a more subdued and matte finish. This can create a unique and interesting texture on your nails, and is a fun way to switch up your nail look.
