To get these luxe-looking nails, apply two coats of a glossy black polish and follow up with a matte top coat. Then, paint two thin lines of the glossy lacquer -- from base to tip -- and two more lines diagonally across the nail to create the cross-hatch effect. Unlike other manicures, skip the top coat because it'll ruin the matte look.

Are you a fan of the matte look?
