This is one product I am OBSESSED with from essie. The matte finish is really different and a nice change from the patent shine. Totally worth the change-up!
Typically use a different brand but decided to give Essie a shot since it's sold at the Walmart close to my house. I assumed that being one of the more expensive drug store brands, it would be good, but I have consistently gotten these white flecks on every single nail I paint! I have been a nail tech for over 5 years now and this is the worst matte top coat I've used.
Love the look this gives my nails! It's quick drying and has a great velvet feel. But, I did get some polish shrinkage at the tips from applying this. Nothing major, no one would even notice except I know it's there.
Some tips: 1. if your worried the white pieces it can cause, wipe your bottle neck clean with a cotton ball and polish remover before/after applying. 2. Applying a shiny top coat first before this matte one can make a huge difference to the lasting power and performance of your manicure.
I'm very impressed with this top coat. I have only had luck with one other top coat from Essie. I even threw one out due to the discoloration. This is a beautiful matte, I can't stop touching my nails it's so smooth. It dried so fast.
It works great with ColorSTREET.
After reading the reviews I was hesitant to buy but I have not had any issues with the polish. I stuck to my routine and they are on their second week. prepped, cleaned, applied a base (essie brand, nail polish (essie quick dry brand), and matte!
This is a very beautiful matte but it constantly chips and when it does, it brings my natural nail with it causing it them to thin. Doesn't last longer than a day.
