Don’t like this polish - as a top coat, it shrinks on your nail. Which makes it look like the very tip of my nails have no colour because the polish recedes back. I’ve tried it with numerous colours and base coats, same effect.
Matte colour is great. Product is very thick.

LOVE this topcoat!! It dries really fast and is completely even... when I miss a spot I can put a dab on the spot and it's seamless. It wears great without chipping too, I change my polish about every week or so and it didn't budge whatsoever! Great stuff.

My bottle is five years old and still works perfectly. My polish is chalkboard matte in seconds. Dry time is also fantastic, since mattes dry fast. I particularly enjoy mattifying glitters for some reason. The effect only lasts for a couple days before becoming satin (which prompts reapplication), but that is typical of any matte I've used.

I really resisted the matte nail trend for years. I hated the look and never thought I’d ever want to try it. Years later I’m seeing so many amazing matte nail designs on Pinterest, so I relent and buy this top coat. Some reviews said it was very thick and slow to dry, but I found the exact opposite, it goes on smoothly and easily, dries as fast as a matte base coat and it can really blur …Read more

Effective, affordable, and easy to use. Just don't put too much pressure while applying or it'll move around the nail polish underneath and ruin your manicure.

Also, I read this tip online and - much to my surprise - it actually works: another handy use for matte topcoat is to make those impossible-to-work-with sheer polishes (a la Essie Ballet Slippers) usable. All you …

I Love this top coat! It leaves a nice satin/matte finish to your polish. It makes dark polishes a little easier to pull off during the day.

I'm not crazy about it for my toes.....that's just me.

Great mattifier! Does exactly what it is supposed to do! Does not look streaky and dries matte incredibly fast. The only reason I would not repurchase is because I would want to try a different mattifying polish, but regardless it is great. It cost me about $10 at Shoppers Drug Mart which is not bad.

I looked at a ton of reviews and comparisons of matte top coats before picking this one, and I am not disappointed. It makes my nails super matte, and I love the effect over shimmery and metallic polishes. I have been obsessed with trying all of my polishes in matte form ever since I bought it, and I get lots of compliments on the matte manicures.

It goes on very easily and dries …

I'm extremely torn about this product. On the one hand, it does a fantastic job mattifying my nails. It's very satisfying to see your boring old polishes turn into gorgeous matte colours. My nails look amazing, with no more hassle than my regular nail routine is. On the other hand, I'm severely disappointed in this as a top coat. I've used it with two different, good quality …Read more

This is a very good topcoat. I don't love the brush (it's the standard Essie brush, which I hate) but the product is great.

It goes on easily, dries very quickly, and is completely matte. I wasn't sure I liked the look at first, but I'm really getting into it.
