Not really a fan of the matte look
Purchased

I bought this to try out the style but I wasn't a fan of how it looked and if you miss a spot along the edges then you will see the shiny polish underneath which looks odd. I thought this top coat went on heavy too which made my nails feel too thick.

Gives a good matte finish for a while
Purchased

I like this product and how it makes my nails look for the first two days but then they start to look shiny again in places which is really annoying. Not the best product out there.

Nice top coat...that's about it

I was disappointed in this product. I might have had too high expectations. It does "dull" the color and gives a nice protective top coat, but I wouldn't call it a matte effect. After a few days, my nails started to have a shiny finish.

An Interesting Effect

As soon as the polish dries, it transforms your shiny polish to a matte finish. However, the matte finish wears off after a few days of wear. I don't think that I will be buying another bottle.

nice

I've used this once so far. Not sure how I feel about the matte finish. I like the idea! Maybe using it as an accent would be better than the whole nail. Nice product. Lasts for a while without chipping!

Changing up nail style

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.

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!

Does exactly what I wanted it to do

I've only used this product to try the matte effect and I am very pleased with the result. I love that it basically doubled my choices of nail polish and I like to do a dark color and just use this product on the tips for a two-toned effect. You do have to make sure to put the color on very evenly, this won't hide imperfections.

Surprisingly cool with metallics...

I took away a star because the product chips a little sooner than I'd prefer, but it dries VERY fast, so it's easy to touch up or repaint. I've used this over all different colors (white, gold, pastels, multi-dimensional jeweltones), and it looks so cool with everything. I like having the option of a matte topcoat to change up my routine occasionally and this one is the best that I've tried thus far!

Solid Top Coat

Good product, it turns any color to a matte color and does not leave streaks behind in the process. It's a decently priced top coat and allows me to make my nail polish collection more versatile, without having to purchase completely new bottles of nail polish.
