Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works for some polishes but not others I got this matte top coat in the 12 pack gift set of e.l.f. nail polishes. I was thinking about buying some more since the bottle I have is tiny and this is pretty inexpensive. But then something happened that made me reconsider. The first time it worked very well. I used it on a purple e.l.f. polish (can be seen in the pictures). The next time I tried to use it on a different brand. It didn't work out very well. In the second picture you can see that there are dents in the polish. They appeared after I applied the top coat.I waited a while to apply any more because I thought maybe the polish needs to be completely dry? Nope. I tried it again 30 minutes later and dents still appeared. It worked okay on another brand I tried (3rd picture- the messiness is from me trying to get my camera to work while the nail was still tacky). I also tried it on a different e.l.f. polish (pink one in first picture) to see if it worked on a separate kind.So yeah the top coat works for some polishes but not others. I liked the effect it had the first time I wore it, but the second time was disappointing. I would recommend it for e.l.f. polishes but I wouldn't risk it with others. I might buy it again if I run out, but only because I have 11 bottles of e.l.f. polishes I can use it with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very streaky The mattifying effect is okay. But it's incredibly streaky and has left like, pits in my nail polish. Not the look I wanted at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this nail polish and I was unfortunately disappointed . It can give a very good finish or leave stripes and it doesn't give a pretty look. I used this coat on a dark purple polish , maybe he will be prettier with a pale color...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I always wanted matte nails, but never wanted to pay $8 for one. I read the reviews on here and thought maybe it was too good to be true. I am a HUGE e.l.f lover, so it surprised me that a lot of people didn't like this product. But for Christmas I received the free gift, and this was inside. I had not used it at all until now. I went to get my nails done, and the salon didn't have a matte top coat. So when I got home, I remembered I had mines. I tried it, and absolutely loved my nails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT STREAKSSSSSS Terrible it streaks no matter how many coats. I bought wet n' wild for $1 and it works magically with no streaks! Why spend the extra $1

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth It I LOVE all things elf, but this was just a waste. I love matte nails and was really excited about getting this. When I finally decided to use it, I opened the bottle and the brush was broken in half and was just "swimming" in the polish. I had the fast dry polish from elf as well so I took the brush out of that, cleaned it off, and used it for the matte coat. When it dried it was VERY streaky and didn't even last a day before it started cracking. Even though it is only a couple dollars, I wouldn't waste you $$

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected I actually really like this. It does mattify the polish for me, but it's not as dull as I'd like it to look. It's not glossy by any means, but I'd just prefer it to be matter...er, more matte. I used the matte finisher over the Brights box polish set also offered by e.l.f. because why not. I think it turned out pretty well. What did bother me was the brush. Like, mine was at an angle so I have to hold the top at an angle or it just feels weird in my hand. But it doesn't take anything away from the finished product, just makes it awkward to use. The smell was also fairly strong. Not strong enough to stop me from using it, but strong enough to be uncomfortable. But since it's so easy to apply I didn't have to deal with the smell for that long. All in all, I think it was a good deal. Great price (especially since more matte finishers are expensive), easy to use (except for my wonky brush), and the end result is nice. I would get again, recommend, and highly praise.
