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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
