Matte Manicures From Instagram You’ll Want to Try This Spring
April 05, 2021
We all have our go-to nail polish colors, but if they’re starting to feel repetitive, consider switching up your manicure’s texture. Matte nails are powdery-smooth, work well with just about any nail length and can elevate even a simple nail art look. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite matte nail looks from Instagram, so you’ve got all the inspo you need to make the switch this spring.
Mix & Match
What better way to spring into the season than with this matte pastel look by @nails.bab? Between the mix and match detailing, the silky matte finish and the ultra-flattering almond shape, we’re instantly sold on these nails. If you are too, we recommend using the Essie Matte About You Top Coat to get the look.
Playing With Patterns
Earthy tones for spring? According to this look and the Essie Spring 2021 Collection, the answer is yes. Here, we love that @yodeebs incorporated paisley bandana patterns for a vibe that’s unmatched — literally.
To say we’re obsessed with these nails by @peninatautele is an understatement. With hand painted curves and the fact that each body appears to glisten, the attention to detail is impressive. To get the look on your own, we suggest using these nail art brushes available on Amazon.
If colorful polishes aren’t your thing, this is the matte nail look for you. Nail artist @nailartbyqueenie took a simple color palette of black and cream to new heights in this abstract design that’s perfect for a minimalist, maximalist or anyone in between.
If going all matte feels like a bold move, dip your toes — or should we say fingers — into the look with accent nails. Here, @thenailboxxchi breaks up her glossy mani with a few matte accent nails complete with cheetah spots.
We love this lava lamp-like look by @nails.bab for its bright colors and soft matte finish. For a jaw-droppingly smooth finish, the Pacifica Plant Magic Translucent Matte Topper can be used on your natural nails or on top of vibrant colors like these.
