Born Pretty Store Matte Top Coat Review

Do you have a matte top coat?

Do you want a matte top coat?

Do you know where to find a matte top coat?

Well, here's one from Born Pretty Store you will enjoy! It does exactly what you turns the mani into a matte mani. It's pretty great. Nothing special, but I don't think any matte top coat would be. It works, dries quickly, and you can get it for under $5 (plus 10% off with the code C10X31).

Here's the mani I did with the matte top coat:

And here is the same mani with a shiny top coat:

See the difference? I really like the effect on glitter and shimmers! I used Bending Over Backward from China Glaze as the base, and Set the Stage from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear.

This product was sent to me by Born Pretty Store. The review is based entirely on my experience with the product and was in no way influenced by anyone.


  1. Do you know if Essie is still producing their matte top coat?

    1. They are :) I can't imagine they'll stop any time soon - they've been very successful with it.

    2. After using Essie for a while and having my manicures chip a lot faster than they should I switched to NYC and I LOVE it! I get much less chippage and it's only $1.89! Their quick dry top coat is also fantastic!

  2. This is pretty good. Was the formula thick/thin?

  3. This sounds handy, and such good value! Do you know if it's as matte as the other popular top coats?

  4. Any idea how long the matte effect lasts? I got the ELF one ages ago and it's fine but I feel it starts to un-mattify quite quickly (even without using hand cream, blah, blah, blah).

  5. I second Stacy, I've been using the NYC one and love it. Seems to work just as well as any other brand, for much less!

  6. I've Always Wanted A Matte Top Coat :( Do You Know Any Brands That Have It For A Reasonable Price? :)

  7. I use this too and it works quite well and its affordably priced.
