Every time I paint my nails with this matte top coat, they feel amazing, and I love that they aren't reflecting light. However, it never lasts more than a day (two at most) before beginning to peel with the color I've coated. I've tried it with an OPI base coat + OPI color and still, it hasn't lasted more than 48 hours. That said, I do have a desk job typing all day, so perhaps if you aren't going to be doing much, the polish will last longer. Definitely recommend this for pictures, too.
