Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT STREAKSSSSSS Terrible it streaks no matter how many coats. I bought wet n' wild for $1 and it works magically with no streaks! Why spend the extra $1

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth It I LOVE all things elf, but this was just a waste. I love matte nails and was really excited about getting this. When I finally decided to use it, I opened the bottle and the brush was broken in half and was just "swimming" in the polish. I had the fast dry polish from elf as well so I took the brush out of that, cleaned it off, and used it for the matte coat. When it dried it was VERY streaky and didn't even last a day before it started cracking. Even though it is only a couple dollars, I wouldn't waste you $$

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected I actually really like this. It does mattify the polish for me, but it's not as dull as I'd like it to look. It's not glossy by any means, but I'd just prefer it to be, more matte. I used the matte finisher over the Brights box polish set also offered by e.l.f. because why not. I think it turned out pretty well. What did bother me was the brush. Like, mine was at an angle so I have to hold the top at an angle or it just feels weird in my hand. But it doesn't take anything away from the finished product, just makes it awkward to use. The smell was also fairly strong. Not strong enough to stop me from using it, but strong enough to be uncomfortable. But since it's so easy to apply I didn't have to deal with the smell for that long. All in all, I think it was a good deal. Great price (especially since more matte finishers are expensive), easy to use (except for my wonky brush), and the end result is nice. I would get again, recommend, and highly praise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cracks/streaks everytime I bought this last week and was so excited to use it! The first time I put it on it dried with streaks/cracks over the nail polish color, similar to a crackle coat. I thought that was just because I hadn't let the color dry enough. The next time I tried it I let the color dry over night and the matte coat still cracked. I should have put the $2 towards the Sally Hansen matte coat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I have wanted a matte top coat for a very long time now, but could never find one in stock in any stores around me, plus they are $10+ in the stores. When I saw this on here I was so excited, and it did not disappoint! Turns my shiny polish into matte within seconds and dries almost as quickly. I'm not sure how quickly it chips compared to other matte polish because I change it all the time, but I know other mattes chip fast too. As for the smell, I have read that people think it smells terrible, I don't really agree. All polish stinks but some of my expensive polish smells FAR worse than this one. And $2, absolutely cannot go wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price for the Quality! I purchased this before my friend told me that she purchased and it was cracking on her. I just received mine, and I love it! No cracks or anything!!! Its definitely worth it for the price! I hope this helps!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this online recently and used only one coat and it does what it says. I did this in this in dim lighting so it doesn't look great like it could have. I would recommend this product to other people.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Clumpy It has a yellowish tint, and cracks when I use it. However, it is a lovely matte shade, and I have learned to apply thin coats. It also takes a while to dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No idea why people are complaining! This does exactly what it claims to, it makes your nails matte. Yes, with that it's going to show imperfections and it's maybe not the longest waring, but it's amazing stuff! And come on, bad smell is all nail polish really, so that's not a complaint to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dupe for Essie's This does not streak. I have the Revlon one which at first I thought was a dupe for Essie's matte topcoat but sometimes I have to apply three coats for my nails to be matte. With Elf's I can apply it once with little product on the brush and it works lovely. Only problem I can say is that sometimes its hard to close.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it for the Price I bought this during the last half off site-wide sale to try it, and it does matte out any nail color, any shine. I like it, though I wish it were more matte (though I haven't tried two coats).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says I brought this after reading the iffy reviews because it is so much cheaper than other brands and it hasn't streaked or crackled for me at all, maybe a change in formula? This dries quickly, looks best with two coats, and may require an additional coat after  a few days. I've tried this on top of everything, love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal! This is a great matte polish. It applied very easily and the bottle is easy to store. I applied my pure ice nail polish in first time(nail polish name), which is a very metallic like color and the polish still looked matte! I can't wait to try it with my elf  polish in nude! I'm sure the results will be perfection. I will be repurchasing or buying this as a gift for other nail polish lovers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite pleased This is a good matte top coat, and definitely worthwhile at this price. I've found it takes two coats to achieve a true matte finish, but since it dries very quickly, especially over a day-old manicure, I don't see that as a problem. I've not noticed any crackling, streaking, or other serious issues-- however, this does have a strong, unusual chemical smell to it. I'm not bothered by it, but if you are sensitive to bad odors I might give this a miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! people who keep giving this product a bad review clearly aren't using it over a proper nail polish! i used it over an O.P.I nail polish and mine came out perfect! love it! don't let the bad reviews scare you away!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spend the extra money I was so excited for this to come! BUT once I got it and used it I was not happy with the results. It dries streaky, doesn't work well. Some parts look matte, others do not, I would say spend the extra money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. This did make my nails matte, but it cracked the polish almost beyond recognition. It looked so gross and was near impossible to remove.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from matte does not last long! The matte probably lasts a maximum of 3 days before wearing off and giving your nails a dull finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is it Weird that I LOVE this? I love love love this nail polish! It works great for me. It doesn't leave a weird crackle pattern. The only downside is it has a strong smell, which, let's be honest, most nail polishes have. But yes, I love this mattifying nail polish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mani-ruining, crackled disappointment I bought this matte finisher in January 2013, and was very excited about it, especially for the price. However, I really regret not looking more thoroughly through the reviews first. It is very apparent that there has been a change in formula for this product. I have tried the finisher on nail polish ranging from metallic to creamy; from freshly-painted, not-quite-dry to several days old; and from cheap NYC brand polish to OPI. With all of these variable tested, my results have always been the same: clumpy, streaky, and crackled matte polish that takes ages to dry and actually pulls apart the lower layers of polish in places so that the actual nail is showing. This polish is definitely not up the standard I've come to expect from e.l.f. prducts. I understand that it's inexpensive, and that's great, but that doesn't matter if the finisher doesn't work. I hope the formula gets fixed up soon to match the standard of other e.l.f. products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dries as a Crackle. Absolutely Useless. If I could rate this 0 stars I would! This polish is terrible. I've now purchased it on two occasions; I will not be suckered in for a third bottle. The first time I purchased this I applied over completely dry nail polish. It applied like any other top coat and then instantly began to dry like a crackle polish. I thought I received a bad batch so I repurchased it. The same thing happened with the 2nd bottle. Baffled, I thought that maybe the issue wasn't the polish; maybe the issue was my own user error so I began to experiment. I normally use OPI polish, maybe that was the issue? I tried this with e.l.f. and the same thing happened. Eager to make this work I pulled out my nail swatch wheel and tried it with Wet & Wild, Julep, China Glaze, several Sally Hansen formulas, Revlon, butter LONDON, and finally Chanel. Every single attempt was met with the same crackle result. This product is garbage, do not waste your money. To be fair to e.l.f. nail products in general I want to add that I am happy with them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected... I was so excited to get this polish and my excitement quickly turned to disappointment once I applied it. It is definitely matte but it crackles. This is so not what I was looking for. e.l.f, please change the description to: "Clear Matte Crackle" polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I definitely should've read the reviews before wasting my money on this nail polish. To quote Janie from another post, as she said exactly what I wanted to: "This is supposed to be matte. I normally LOVE e.l.f products so I was excited about this one. But it's terrible. It is matte however, it crackles. I expected it to be smooth. I didn't order a crackle top coat. So beyond disappointed"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work This top coat left a very odd crackle finish. It simply doesn't work like it's supposed to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money! I was super excited to purchase this product but I'm so disappointed that it turned out how it did. Obviously, we're all here for the same reason, to find a matte overcoat at a great price. This isn't it. I'd heard so many great things about this product. Sadly, the first few times I tried to buy this, it was sold out. Finally, after waiting for a while, it came back in stock. I was so sure I would love it I bough two! However, upon applying this on my nails, which were FULLY DRIED, they turned cloudy, streaky, and above all problems, crackled! If you're looking for a clear crackle, you'll like this. Unfortunately, I payed for a matte finish. SIDE NOTE: After reviewing the bottle, I noticed the little sticker on the cap that said it was a new formula. PLEASE go back to the previous one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope This is my first order from elf, I bought several new things to try and really loved them all, except for this one. It came out white-ish and streaky and wore off in one evening. I've never used a matte polish before and was excited to try it out, big fail....but 1 miss out of 20 isn't bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I was very excited about this nail polish because I wanted a matte top coat for awhile and this one was very inexpensive. However, when I put it on and it started to dry it gave the nail polish a crackle effect. I didn't pay for a crackle nail polish. Guess if you want good quality you have to buy a more expensive brand.
