I have seen a ton of posts on other blogs about matte nail polishes but have not bought one myself. I decided to get a matte top coat so that I could make any color that I have matte. I wanted to buy Essie Matte About You because I have heard good things, but it was sold out. I settled for Seche Vite Matte Top Coat. I decided to try it out over China Glaze Frostbite a shiny blue.
I was very disappointed with the matte effect. It has almost no effect and was way too expensive for the product that you get.
Here is a zoomed in view of the nail, I only used two coats of the matte top coat over one of Frostbite. Next time I may try a few more coats or try mixing it into the color before I apply it to my nails.
