Of all the many nail trends, matte is definitely one every beauty junkie just has to try.

No one is saying to abandon the gorgeous gloss of a fresh, clear top coat, but sometimes you gotta change it up a little. And with fall right around the corner, now is a great time to refresh your manicure methods for a dose of the fab and trendy. Now matte nails are definitely still in as autumn quickly approaches. The muted texture of this nail style is adored by women everywhere, including Kim Kardashian, who we spotted rocking the coolest black gloss on black matte French mani just this spring. Love!

With this trend in full-fledge gear after Kim K posted her homage to the fad, women were finding ways to make the look their own with cool DIY tricks they could use at home. Many opted to skip the expensive nail salon and create matte nails using steam. Check out the fun tutorial for this awesome technique, courtesy of Michelle Phan here.
