Beauty Trick: Make Your Own Matte Nail Polish

Matte nail polish is Fall's biggest nail trend, so chances are, you'll want to get your hands on a matte polish — or at least a top coat. If you don't have one on standby, there's an easy way to make your own at home. That's right: go to the kitchen, grab the cornstarch, and get ready to DIY. If you don't bake and there's no cornstarch to be found, don't fret. Eye shadow is a great option as well. Just mix it with your favorite top coat, and get ready to show off your shine-free nails this coming season. Even without the sheen, your manicure will shine.

I really do not care if matte is the "in" look. I prefer shine on my nails with the polish and maybe even a bit of sparkle.

I discovered by accident that aerosol dry shampoo also works to make regular nail polish matte. Just paint your nails as you usually would, and once they're dry, spray the dry shampoo over the nails from a foot or so away. Spray more if they don't end up matte enough. Easy!
