This matte finish top coat is totally awesome and looks really cool. It does kind of wear off quickly but it is so easy to just reapply the top coat after a few days because this stuff dries really really fast! What worked best for me was to do a regular manicure with the shiny clear top coat and then once that is completely dry I put the matte finish on. That way my nails don't chip as quickly!

I was looking for a way to take on the latest trend in matte nail polish without losing the colors I already owned and loved. Unfortunately, the frontrunners of this trend cost up to $[...]! Fortunately, Essie was right on their heels with this amazing product. It goes on right over my nail polish as a top coat, and really does turn any color to a matte finish! It dries fast, so put on smoothly or there will be bumps.

I couldn't wait for my essie matte finisher to come by the mail today & once I got it I used it with the essie real red polish. Well in seconds, before your eyes it turned completely matte. Good side was you just need one bottle of essie matte finisher to turn any bright color completely matte. The down side was that it chips easily & you need to do your manicure perfect so it won't look all messy. This polish is not forgiving.

I have had the matte nail polish for over a month now and I use it with every nail polish color I have. Works great! Make sure to use a base coat, top coat and then the matte. It seems to last longer that way! Enjoy :D

This does provide an instant matte finish, but when I used this on my nails and found that it was flaking off and chipping a day later. Try Nail Envy matte; a much more durable finish.

Looks amazing, and a way better deal than buying matte colors. Turns all colors to a great matte finish - - usually takes two coats, dries really fast. The matte finish lasts about four or five days, after that you should do another coat as the matte gets shiny after a while. But I am really happy with this product.

This Matte finisher works...ish.

1)as with any nail finish, it dries fast but you still need to give it plenty of time to really harden
2)the finish is only as good as the color beneath. Use a good color, such as OPI, or it will chip and break faster and not cover well.
3)if you get the finish soft or wet, it turns whiteish until it dries.
4)using lotion on your hands will remove--almost entirely--the matte effect.

I was really excited to try out this matte finish top coat. Upon application, it dried very quickly (a HUGE plus for me), instantly leaving a unique matte finish on my black nail polish.

I was a bit skeptical about this, as I noted that other reviews said the polish chips - well, it does. Within the first few hours, my nails were chipping, and it didn't look nearly as good as it did immediately after application.

All in all, I'm satisfied with this product, as it is a cheap, fun way to make nails look a little different. I'm extremely busy and used to polishes chipping fairly quickly, so I'm not too irked by this one in particular. I would recommend this to someone just looking to mix things up a little bit!
