Barry M Matte Top Coat 10ml
Be my matte
This barry m mattifying top coat is some pretty good stuff.
It dries super quick, very helpful to those impatient people (like myself) and does what is says on the tin it gives your polish a matte top coat.
I can only describe it as looking at your nail through cloudy water, but you can still see any design underneath and makes the paint seem more 2 dimensional as it covers over any lumps on your base paint.
The matte coat, i think looks better on block coloured nails, rather than nails with intricate designs or patterns.
The polish is long lasting- probably for about a week or until your base polish begins to break down.
I don't think this top coat does as good a job as a specialised matte colour, but you can still achieve successful results.
Overall this matte top coat is useful to have, a good price (and will probably end up cheaper than buying just all matte colours,) quick drying and produces a really nice effect.
I definitely recommend it.

Bought this to use over the Barry M matte polishes, as they seem to chip very quickly when used alone. This reinforces the smooth matte look and protects the polish, giving me days of perfect wear, which is what you want really!

Barry M is superb - but..............
I had a Christmas gift of 4 Barry M sparkly and 2 pearly colours and 1 Matte top coat. I love the former nail paints but was not impressed with this top coat unfortunately. Although I admit it is a Matte, when I should have asked for one with more shine, when it is put over the usual pearl colours and sparkle, it is too heavy and spoils it.
