top: without matte top coat and bottom: with matte top coat
I was really excited to try this matte nail polish top coat sent to me by Mash Nails! There are several manicure inspirations pictures I’ve pinned on my Nails board involving matte nails, so I’m happy to now own this top coat that can make any color look matte!
For this initial review, I kept it simple by painting my nails a solid color so you can clearly see the difference. In the top picture you can see that the hot pink polish I chose is normally shiny and glossy, then in the second picture, I added the matte top coat and voilà, it went from shiny to matte just like that! Before I added the matte coat, I actually taped off the tips of my nails so that most of the nail would look matte while the tips would still be shiny. The matte top coat looks cloudy in the bottle, but it goes on clear and dries quite quickly. Overall I’m pretty pleased with this matte nail polish because it’s easy to use and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. I can’t wait to use it again with a fancier manicure!
