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!
