So I recently heard from a friend about OPI's Matte Finish top coat and was really excited about it. But I also heard it's pretty hard to get a hold of right now, so here's an alternative: NYX Matte Me Crazy. What's amazing about this polish line is that it's regular $1.99 but right now it's on sale at Walmart in Canada for 2 for $3.00! You can't beat that. I bought another colour with it but I haven't tried that out to see what the consistency is like. As far as the Matte Finish goes though, it's great. Goes on smooth and not goopy for how inexpensive it is. It also doesn't make your nails look hazy like you might think from the look of the bottle.
I also picked up Sally Hansens Smooth and Perfect in Sorbet and tried that with the Matte Finish. It's a very neutral peachy-pastel colour but I love it. This polish is definitely buildable and you may have to apply 3 or 4 coats if you want it to look more like it does in the bottle. I just applied 2 though because I didn't want to spent all night worrying about smudging it. I found it hard to capture the matte finish in a photo but have a look and see what you think!
So, there it is. Final verdict- I really like the matte finish and will definitely be trying it with lots of other colours.
Have you tried a matte finish top coat? What do you think?
