Can anyone tell me how to do this effect with Gelish, please. I can't work out how to make it matt. Thanks

I use Shellac but I imagine the procedure would be the same.

When you are done topcoating and wiping off the sticky layer, you 'matte' the finish with a super fine file. Wipe off the dust then make a design in the matte finish with topcoat, cure, wipe, voila. HTH! :)

This has been covered previously, type in matte gelish in the search and I think it's explained how to do this :)

Thank you all. I just can't believe it's that simple. Doh! :|
