More Like Semi-Gloss
This claims to give a matte finish to nail polish but when I painted this over a metallic base color and a solid/cream cracked polish, the results were actually more semi-glossy than matte, as if the first two colors had freshly dried and did not have a top coat over them yet. This certainly is a top coat if you don't want a high-shine gloss over your nail design, because it will preserve your nail polish longer than without any top coat, but it's not truly matte in finish. I wanted to like it, since it's very inexpensive, but it's not quite what I was looking for.
