      Comments about Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher:

      Bought this a while back and wanted to give it a fair shot before I put in my opinion. Although it does the job, it dries extremely slow regardless if the nail polish color I use is already completely dry. This doesn't compare to the Essie quick dry top coat that I love so much. The quick dry dries instantly whereas this takes over an hour with just one coat on.

      The nail polish would have lasted by itself longer than with the top coat. It was pretty but did not last long at all.

      Comments about Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher:

      Dries super fast and looks very matte. Just be sure to let the polish underneath the matte topcoat dry completely first. The dried nail polish around the opening (the crusties) get inside the bottle which then transfer to the nail leaving white specs all over nails. Which is terrible if you used a dark color.

          Comments about Essie Matte About You Matte Finisher:

          Been wanting to try a matte nail look for awhile, but I hate getting manicures, so I was excited when I saw this in the store. Did my nails tonight, and I'm rather pleased with the result. Smooth, matte, and any flaws are because I'm kind of messy when I do my nails. My only complaint is that this dries EXTREMELY fast, so you have to have a near-flawless application. Looked pretty messy on my first few nails, so I actually went in with a second coat to make it look better once I got the hang of it, and they all look nice now. Will probably buy again when I run out, since this is a pretty nifty look that I intend to keep using.

            Does dry fairly quickly and creates a matte finish.
            However, color from the polish will come off and stain the brush and the entire bottle. I am not sure if this will give everything I use it on next a slight tinge. I have this issue with other Essie topcoat products, even after waiting 24 hours or even weeks to use it (used it in my toes since I rarely put top coat on them and it still stained.)

            A true matte top coat. I've tried other that haven't completely taken out the shininess but this one works perfectly! The only con was that it smeared my stamping design even though the design was completely dry.

                If I could give no stars, I would. I put this on at 1 pm this afternoon and it's now 5:42 pm. I can stick stick the edge of my fingernail into it and it is still denting. I used quick dry drops. And it's already chipped on 4 nails. I didn't even think something could chip if it wasn't fully dry but here we are. This is garbage.

                  My mom got me this product last Christmas and I loved it! I occasionally use it every now and then when I want to spice things up with my nail routine. the only downside to this product is that after the couple of uses, the nail polish dries in the top of the bottle and creates this white crusty substance that sticks to the brush and gets on your nails when putting the product on. Other than that, love this product.
