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.

I figured I'd try this with the polish I had before buying all new polish, and used it over opi polish to try matte. It lasted almost a week before chipping a lot, and when I used nail polish remover, the color was still on my nails. A month later with painting over with several different colors, my nails are still green underneath. Eventually my nails will have grown to the point the color is gone, but still sucks

I LOVED the first day of wearing this. However, as soon as I washed my hands a few times I noticed the polish starts to wrinkle. The matte effect lasts about that long as well.
So, not great for long time wear, but absolutely fantastic for a specific look/day/night. Just try to keep your hands out of water.
Morgan from Kentucky
Unfortunately, the matte portion of my polish only lasted about a day or two after applying. After that, I was left with my regular, shiny polish. Great price, but I wished it held up better.

The matte effect works great! Does not change the color of what's underneath. Doesn't add weird texture like some other brands. First Essie product I've seen that has a bigger brush that's more usable than all their polishes previously purchased...hopefully they are starting to do this for all their products going forward.

I've used it on all my polish and it's amazing!

I love this matte top coat! It dries fast and is not streaky at all. I would recommend using a normal topcoat underneath this though, because it's pretty thin and doesn't I feel like it does too much protecting. Also be careful of dried product falling in, sometimes I have little white spots on my nails because I've dried up product that got into the bottle. There are those two small inconveniences, but at the end of the day this is still the best Matte finisher I have tried

~ one coat provides matte finish over polish
~ does not chip easily
~ smooth finish

I used it with a Red Carpet gel color and so far no chips. It was easy to apply and has a fun matte finish. I used it to create a tone on tone French manicure. Love the effect.

this polish dries quickly and looks great... until you see all of the tiny white dots ruining your manicure. apparently it's a problem (see other reviews), so I don't know why this product is being sold as is. I love essie and am extremely disappointed.

I've used this product for a long time but every time I get halfway down the bottle, it just stops working! My thumb is now half matte, half glossy and the rest of my nails are glossy and completely dry! Probably won't be buying this top coat again - when it works its super good, but beware once you're halfway through it, you'll have to buy another one.

It can't get any matter than this. If extreme mat is what you are looking for, look no further. Way more matting than what I wanted or expected, but that's another story.
Dave from San Francisco
Super matte for the first day but then I noticed it got a little less but still really nice. Also drys pretty fast which was my problem with other matte top coats
Sam from Arlington,Wa
I bought this to use as a top coat over my already matte nails, it doesn't go on clear, it left like a yellowish film, and it didn't stay, within a day the top coat was cracking and falling off and warped the sticker decorations that were on my nails. I would not recommend it.
jordanst from Calgary
I bought this for a wedding and painted my nails the night before, I took extra care when painting them to make sure they were perfect. They were chipping by the next morning! I had to repaint my nails before the wedding they chipped so bad. I've tried it a few more times on different polish, but still saw the same results..
Sushi from South Africa
I bought this, and I am really happy I did. This gives an amazing matte effect, and it looks stunning. Although it doesn't bother me, it does change the colour slightly. This is really a great top coat to have...
Alexis from St. Louis, MO
I love matte nails and have been in the search for one for the LONGEST time. I use only Essie nail polish, so I wanted an Essie top coat since it'll work best with the nail polish. I'm glad ULTA sells it because I snatched this quickly! I tried it and it does make my nails indeed matte. It also dried super quickly which I LOVE!
Mikala from Illinois
I bought this item because I wanted a matte top coat. My fingernails were good for about two days, then started to chip, but that is typical for me. It has lasted longer on my toes! This product is easy to use and leaves a beautiful matte finish to any nail polish.
Martine from Tx
Does not give a soft satin finish to glossy nail polish as hoped
Johanna from Tennessee
I put a fast drying top coat down on my polish color first and then add this matte on top and it's perfect!!! I wish I could post pictures!
otter from undisclosed
I got this today and it looks lovely on! It gives a smooth finish and can make a rough manicure look professional. Super soft and gorgeous finish. I am relatively new to doing my own nails and this helps a lot.
mcounts from Prosser, WA
I wasnt expecting to much from this but i was hoping for a decent matte finish. It wasnt to bad, it only lasted a couple days. I would suggest putting it on over a clear top coat rather than the color directly that way the color polish lasts longer than the matte. it makes for easier touch ups.
Seuk from Los Angeles
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.
Liz from Pennsylvania
The nail polish would have lasted by itself longer than with the top coat. It was pretty but did not last long at all.
kay11 from Jonesboro AR
I have used all different type of matte top coats and I finally found my match. It looks flawless and is wonderful I would not use a different top coat. It looks amazing with nudes and light pastel colors and even deep like maroons.
Caitlin Caitlin from PA, United States
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.
