I never realized how much matte nails make you feel like a queen. I really only use it with dark colors, but I’m sure it’ll look good with anything! I’ve had it almost a year and it still is working great! I’m about to go paint my nails red with NARS nail polish and put this on top :) NARS Nail Polish Collection, shade=Jungle Red

Eeeekk!! No!! It even turned yellow after not too long! It didn’t work that well to begin with and leaves a weird tint to your nails and they don’t look equally matte. I would NOT recommend! I would not buy again- try Essie or OPI MatteSally Hansen® Big Matte Top Coat™ Nail Polish

I worked as a lab tech for almost two years and the company I worked for did not allow us to wear nail polish to work. Luckily, I found this clear matte nail polish. If applied by itself, it looks like your natural nail, but cleaner and tidier and protected. ;)

I really love Sally Hansen® Big Matte Top Coat™ Nail Polish! Most matte top coats fade after about 2 or so days and this one is no different. It's great for the price and doesn't take forever to dry. About $5 Amazon Prime and sometimes cheaper in stores, can't go wrong.

Love this top coat. Really neat idea. It turns a polished look into a completely different style. Worth the money. You'll never get tired of the new matte possibilities of your polish colors!

This is the first matte top coat I’ve ever tried and I loved it. I’m obsessed with matte nails and I can turn Any color into a matte finish! It applied very smooth and doesn’t take long to dry. The only negative thing I have to say is it does start to get very sticky and “dried out” quickly, probably half way through the bottle.

This matte top coat is perfect for the job. It gives a nice even matte look over each nail. It works on colors from black to white and every color in-between. I would definitely recommend this top coat to anyone who loves the matte look. 😆

For anyone who wants to do an at home matte coat, this is the one! I purchased this and it actually works! It keeps my nail polish matte for a long time and you don't need to add so much which is great. Definitely recommend.

I am in love with matte nails and I hate having to go to the nail salon to get what I want. I'm looking for opinions on this product and if its user friendly.

Do you need to put this on multiple times to be able to get that perfect matte look?

I know this matte top coat is inexpensive. but is it still worth the money? does it actually leave your polish matte?
