Looking for a way to flaunt stiletto nails in a bold, daring way? Matte polish has been sweeping the nail world because of its understated beauty. While many of us ladies tend to sport matte nail polish on short to medium nails, matte is a beautiful addition to stiletto nails.
The pointed shape of these nails is easily glammed up with a coat of matte no matter the color. Matte polish is the opposite of all other polishes in that it is not shiny. Choose to paint nails one solid color, include an accent nail, or add beautiful designs and 3D details.
