Best Matte Nail Polish Shades


1. MAC Wham, Bam, Glam:

MAC Wham, Bam, Glam

Wham, Bam, Glam is a dark taupe matte finish nail polish from MAC. The colour sort of reminds me of milk chocolate. This is a pretty shade that you can wear to work as a change from the regular peaches and creams. Requires three coats.

2. Zoya Lolly:

Zoya Lolly

My favourite of the lot. Of course you know why. Lolly is a bright pink matte. The shade would be any pink polish lovers’ delight. Mattes finishes normally end up dull. But this one is a blinder. Requires three coats.

3. Orly Blue Suede:

Orly Blue Suede

Blue Suede comes from Orly’s Matte Couture collection. It is a pretty denim blue matte. The finish is matte but still has a bit of gloss to it which I love. Looks like suede for sure. Requires two coats.

4. OPI Honey Ryder:

OPI Honey Ryder

Honey Ryder is a beautiful gold matte with gold shimmers in it. Made in OPI’s famous liquid sand finish, the polish looks like gold foil on nails. If you want a muted gold without going over the top, this one is for you. Requires two coats.

5. Avon Matte Violetta:

Avon Matte Violetta

Violetta is a dark royal purple matte. I love how the shade stays bright even with the matte finish. Dark matte shades are rare so it is good to stock up on this one. Requires two coats.

6. Orly Viridian Vinyl:

Orly Viridian Vinyl

Viridian Vinyl belongs to Orly’s Plastix collection. It is a beautiful blue-green teal matte. What I love about this polish is that you have a matte finish with ample of gloss. It is almost like having a layer of plastic on your nails. Requires two coats.

7.  Zoya Posh:

Zoya Posh

Posh comes from Zoya’s limited edition Matte Velvet collection. It is a matte velvet red with some shimmer in it. The shade is darker than regular reds and would look fabulous for an evening out. Truly resembles a luxurious velvet fabric. Requires three coats.

8. MAC Studded:

MAC Studded

When you think of silver mattes, all that comes to mind are grays. But not this one. Studded is a true blue silver matte with shimmer in it. Yes, shimmer in matte!! Very unique and a must have. Requires three coats.

9. Zoya Veruschka:

Zoya Veruschka

Veruschka is a dark forest green matte with loads of green shimmer to it. If you love greens, this one is a must have. The shimmer is quite prominent even on the matte background. And if you tire of the matte look, simply add a coat of topcoat and you end up end up with something even more beautiful. Requires two coats.

10. OPI Vesper:

OPI Vesper

Another liquid sand beauty. Vesper is a deep purple-black with loads of black glitter in it. A beautiful black matte nail polish to substitute your regular black polish with. Requires three coats
