Matte, but not perfect
Purchased

I like this stuff! I think the price is right and the size of the jar isn't terrible. I had dreams of perfect dark cranberry matte nails for this fall, and this made those dreams come mostly true! There are two main issues with it - it's really thick, and the finish is kind of plastic-looking. I used it over some Deborah Lippman polish that takes three coats, so by the time this stuff had dried it felt like I was wearing an inch of product on each nail. I think next time I use this it'll go on over a one- or two-coat polish. Perhaps the topcoat's thickness is what makes the finish seem kind of odd? But it could also be because I messed it up a few times. Overall, I love the matte look and I know that it's impossible to make nails reflect NO light, so I was happy with this purchase.

This matte top coat is great! I had been debating getting one for a while, so I decided to just take the plunge. Now I have twice as many polishes, plus the matte look is great!

The Ruffian matte top coat gave my at-home manicure extra oomph. The total effect was very chic and it made my nail polish last longer.

Ruffian Matte
Purchased

I already tried Ruffian nail polishes and loved them, so I tried the Matte Top Coat. This is the only matte I've ever tried. It was easy to use. It went on smooth and dried quickly.

Great Product

This matte top coat allows you to create-your-own matte nail polish! You just polish your nails as normal and apply this polish. As I applied, I thought it wasn't working because it was clear. But as it dries, it creates the matte look. I like this polish because it's easy to apply and has the ability to subdue bright colors! This is a must-have for your collection!!!

Instant results!
Purchased

Thanks to the reader who left a comment before me, I decided to purchase this matte coat since shipping was free this month and I could use my points. I'm really glad I did! The results are instantaneous and very pretty. It also helped my nails dry really fast, much faster than I am used to. As the commenter before me said, the bottle is the same size as the nail polish in this month's box. That is perfectly fine with me because I go through nail polishes so slowly. I love the bottle shape, I really do think it's easier to apply.
Overall, a great buy, and I recommend to everyone who is thinking of buying a matte coat.

I used my Birchbox points to get this because, hey, why not? I got the Fox Hunt colour in my September Birchbox which was the colour I did not want the most, but I tried it anyway and the formula was awesome so since I was in the hunting for a good matte top coat, I decided to get it from Ruffian.
The formula for the top coat dries really fast and goes on well just like the colour polish, the matte effect is instantaneous and lovely looking. I was surprised to find that the size I received was full size, because the bottle was so small I thought I got a sample! Despite that this top coat is flawless and if you're someone looking for a matte coat, I strongly recommend this one.
