A lot of the non-shiny (matte) stuff that I use is actually acrylic paint, not polish. I also really like Revlon’s matte nail polishes. I love the matte look, but it’s definitely easiest to achieve with paints. Another way to get the look is to use a matte top coat, I really like Kleancolor’s matte top coat. I hope that helps!
Thank you, Kristine! About half the time I use acrylic paint and half the time I use nail polish. Usually small details are done in acrylic paint, while bigger stuff is done with polish. Sometimes I only use polish though. The acrylic paints don’t last *quite* as long as polish. I find that if you top coat them, they last almost as long, but maybe a day shorter. If you don’t top coat them, then as soon as you wash your hands they will bleed together. I just use the cheapest brand of acrylic paint that is available at the craft store I go to. The brand is called “Craft Smart.” I have heard that if you buy the better acrylic paints, they work better, but I’m not sure how true that is. Hope that helps!
