They say three's a trend, and we've seen handfuls (heh!) of this look backstage during Fashion Week — can you guess?
"It is definitely a trend," Deborah Lippmann told us at Badgley Mischka, where she lacquered the models' tips with a rich ruby red matte color called Red Silk Boxers, which launches later this year. "We've done two collections that have a matte finish," she continued. "It's all about matte. Put your sheer pinks away for the fall, just put them away. Don't throw them away, but put them in the back. It's going to be color, color, color."
Lippman also has a "punk rock" popcorn-ceiling-like textured matte polish coming out this summer, which she used at both Zero + Maria Cornejo and Lela Rose.

As for other lacquer lines, Butter London designed these grungy-glam matte nails at ICB by Prabal Gurung:

And OPI unveiled its new "Matte Top Coat," which hits stores this April, at Karen Walker's fall 2013 show:
