Matte
To achieve this look, all you have to do is apply three coats of OPI "You Don't Know Jacques Matte," pictured here, or any other polish from the OPI matte collection. For this manicure, using a top coat would ruin the matte look and make your nails look shiny. You can, however, use a matte top coat, which can also be found at OPI.
