D.I.Y homemade MATTE NAIL Polish!!! | AndreasChoice

Sometimes I just don’t feel like
leaving my house to go buy things and that’s one of the reasons
why I love DIY so much. In today’s video, I’m actually going
to show you how to turn your standard, is that the right word,
nail polish into matte nail polish. It’s probably better to use something
that doesn’t have like any glitter in it. But I don’t know, I’ve never really tried
it with anything that has glitter in it. So I don’t really know
how it would turn out. Here is all that you need. A mixing palette of some sort, your nail
polish, and you need some corn starch. And a base coat is actually optional, but
I prefer to use a base coat when I’m gonna do like something really cool to my nails,
because I want it to last longer. Let it dry. And then afterwards, you’re gonna get your
nail, whatever nail polish you wanna use. My favorite nail polish like in
matte color or style is black. And then afterwards,
get your mixing palette. I’m just using an empty lid
to like an old container. Then get your nail polish and
put a little bit into your mixing palette. I recommend starting off with
a little bit at first so that the unused part doesn’t dry up too
quick and then you waste nail polish. And then I’m taking a stir stick and just a little bit of cornstarch at the end
of the stir stick like this much, and I’m mixing it into the nail
polish like you see me doing. Be sure to mix it together evenly, because you want the corn starch
not to be, you know, clumpy. Also you wanna hurry and apply because it is corn starch,
it will start to get really clumpy. So, make sure that, you know, you, you,
the process needs to move quickly. And you’ll notice
the texture is really weird. It’s probably really weird at first
to apply, but as it starts to dry and set, it actually, kind of,
like smooths itself out a bit. And the more cornstarch,
you use per nail polish drops, the more matte it’s gonna be. And here’s what it looks
like when it’s drying. It takes like five or ten minutes
to dry and to start turning matte. And then after it’s dry, this is what it
looks like and then I compare it actually. Two of my fingers, the top one is just
regular black nail polish with no clear coat, and then the bottom
has the corn starch in it, and that’s what it looks like
when it’s completely dry. Also, don’t forget to clean
off your bristles with, like, nail polish remover and like, a cotton
pad before putting it back into its home. And then afterwards, here is what my nails
look like when they’re completely done. Now, if you’re feeling really fancy and
frisky, a little tip, I guess, beauty tip, you can just take
a clear coat and do a little French mani. I love this look so much. I think it’s so freaking cute and
I’ve seen it around and so now I got to make my own without
going shopping or going to a salon. So this is what the finished
product looks like. Here is my attempt to paint my right hand
with my left hand cause I am right handed. It’s pretty scary. Then you’re done. The end. That is it for this video. So, I hope that you guys like it. I know it was really short, but, for what
it’s worth, I’ll be back in like a day or two with a new video. Comment down below. Let me know what you think. And I’ll see you guys soon. Okay.
Love you. Bye. [MUSIC]

  1. Omg that is so cool going to try it hope I don't messup when I put the top coat on 🙂 🙂 🙂 :-)! :-)! 😛 😛 B-) B-) B-) B-)

  2. You can just put the corn starch over the too right after it dries with a dry fan brush or any kind if brush instead of having to mix!

  3. omg andrea ur my savior it actually worked!!!!i luv u.<3 ive been trying to find matte nail polish for months now,ur my hero!!!!

  4. 🚨if you don't have corn starch, use baby powder instead. i'm currently letting my nail polish dry, and i can already see my nails turning matte🚨

  5. I would make this but where I come from matte nail polish is quiet cheap sooo yea and its is kinda easy for me to paint my right nails even if I'm right handed I did a French manicure to both or my handed and they look professional 🙂 (sorry if seems I'm bragging) and here's a tip and how to paint your nail if your right handed make sure both of your hand are rested on your work surface trust me it helps

  6. An easier way to do this is to paint on a coat of polish and then dip it in a the corn starch while its still wet and then brush it of once it dries it works much better

  7. Thanks so much ! It's a good feeling knowing I can do my nails the way I want instead of the nail salon saying to do something different !

  8. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that's miserable at painting my right hand with my left. 😛
    This is cool, though.  I definitely wanna try it out!

  9. I have a question I know this will work with nail polish, but will it work on acrylic paint? I'll give it a try and let you know. Thanks for the lovely tutorial.

  10. Some people do diy peel of base coat with elmer's glue and a little bit of water, and I found that putting the glue mixture on top of your regular nail polish manicure makes it dry matte. The glue does what a matte topcoat would do, except its cheaper.

  11. Cute look! Esp the shiny tips on matte polish!! I wonder if corn starch also works on lipstick to make it matte?

  12. I usually buy Pure Ice Matte finish and when I went to Walmart they were out. The only other brand that had it was Sally Hensen but it was over five bucks for it. So I Google and many tutorials had Cornstarch and I bought a box for a dollar. I used a clear top coat that I really didn't cared about and removed all of it into a clear mixing container and used maybe two tablespoons because I read the more cornstarch you put the more matte finish it becomes. And after mixing it well I was so excited to see the matte finish for a dollar and a already owned clear nail Polish (:

  13. I tried it …it works…my sister liked it too much..thnx..now we have a low cost matte nailpaint

  14. The all u have done is mind blowing keep it up and I luv Matte stuff matte lips 👄 matte nail polish but I don't need to make all I already have in London and I was just watching becoz I buy it was expensive so I tried making at home it doesn't work but still luv u haha like this comment coz today is my birthday 🎉
