Crimson Satin

Whether it's a vampy red that matches your lips, or a work-appropriate nude that updates your look, a matte mani is as simple as choosing a color you like in a regular polish, then adding a matte topcoat. "Resist the urge to reapply the topcoat if you don't see instant results," warns manicurist Deborah Lippmann, who says that her own version [Flat Top Matte-Maker topcoat ($20)] needs to be completely dry before it turns flat.
