For the best results, apply over a nail polish with a classic, creamy finish instead of a jelly, metallic, or glitter polish.

Amazing!!

Holy matte!!! I am in love with this matte top coat. I took an emerald green with glitter in it and painted this over it. Totally changes my nail polish game from super shimmer to a sleek and clean looking matte polish. You won't be disappointed!!

It was nice to have a different look while it lasted, it does chip within a couple of days though. Also if you miss even a tiny spot its really noticeable.

I'm actually amazed by the efficacy of this product! It took my super glittery shiny polish and made it the perfect matte and also was a great nail hardener as well!! Perfect!

Awesome Trick

This has revolutionized my nail polish routine. It's also saved me a small fortune on impulse buying NEW nail polish. All my boring old shades are brand new and eye catching again.

Changing up nail style
Purchased

I've been looking for a matte top coat and decided to try this one from Alessandro. I've seen some cool styles using the polish and wanted to try them. I have to say, the matte does not look good on brighter colors. Winter colors look best. I wish the top coat was a bit stronger too. The overall product delivers and it gives a new option to try new styles.

This is an excellent top coat. In general effectiveness and quality as well as Matte ability. Very essential if you are enthusiastic about nail polishes, super fun to experiment with. And again still a very effective top coat which is nice.

Love this stuff!

I love being able to use this top coat to transform my nails with a matte finish. It totally does the job and it's almost as if I have two different kinds of color in one bottle now with this top coat.

Happy with this purchase!

I've really loved the matte nail look and thought this seemed like a good option to try it out and overall I'm really happy that I decided to buy this.

I used it over an OPI nail polish and applied 2 coats. It takes a few minutes to begin looking matte after you apply and then it looks like it has dried all the way but be careful! I ruined a few fingers by letting them brush against a towel too soon after when they seemed totally dry but still smeared.

But as long as you don't smear them too horribly you can just add another matte coat to fix them without needing to start over with the colored polish, which is really nice.

This is also very affordable and I love how I can make any of my nail polishes matte or leave them shiny.

I'm a nurse at a hospital and I feel like matte nails look a little more toned down and professional than super shiny ones so I don't feel like I'm going to offend anyone even if I'm not wearing a boring color. I got lots of compliments from co-workers and patients and can't wait to try out the matte polish with other colors!

yes, it does work!!
Purchased

this is a great item. It does turn your glossy nailpolish into a flat matte which looks awesome. I expect, just like any topcoat finish, that I will have to touch up between nail polish changes, so that doesn't bother me

I will purchase again !
