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.

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.
