 Nail polish trend isn't black, or pale pink nor even blue, it's matte black. Beauty insiders are all buzzing about matt blacknail polish as must have. I'm such a big fan of black nail polish it's so easy to maintain and usually tends to last longer than lighter nail polish colors. One of my favorite tricks when wearing matte nail polish is to paint the tips of my nails in glossysatin black nail polish to create the contrast from the matte polish.

And here’s an easy step-by-step guide to use while doing your manicure!
Step 1: Manicure your nails as you like. Push back the cuticle, buff them, shape them, etc.
Step 2: Paint your nails with your plain black nail polish.
Step 3: Once your black nail polish is dry paint the Hard Candy Matte Top Coat over it.
Step 4: Strip off the area of your nails that you want to be the black tip using clear tape. Tear off small pieces of tape and stick them to your nails leaving the tip exposed for painting. You can also buy “french manicure guides” at any variety store.
Step 5: Paint the tips of your nails black and you can even paint over the clear tape to make the line as defined as possible.
Step 6: Remove the tape when the nail tips appear to be dry.
Step 7: Paint on clear top coat nail polish.
