MASH Matte Top Coat Swatch and Review!

In MASH, Milani, Nails, Sonoma Nail Art by Jacki8 Comments

Hello readers! I have an exciting new review for you today! MASH just released a matte top coat and I received it in the mail today!

If you are unfamiliar with matte top coats, I’ll explain a bit. It’s a clear top coat that can be applied over any polish to take away the shine and make it look like a matte polish! Instead of buying a ton of matte polishes, you can always get a matte top coat and make any polish look matte!

My favorite thing to apply a matte top coat over is glitter! That’s what I decided to do for today’s post. I have done 2 fingers with a shiny top coat and 2 fingers with this MASH Matte Top Coat so you can see the difference!

Index and Ring fingers have a normal shiny top coat. Middle and Pinky nails have the MASH Matte Top Coat.

I used:
Orly Nail Defense
2 coats of Milani Black Swift
1 coat of Sonoma Nail Art Sonoma Sunset
1 coat of MASH Matte Top Coat or 1 coat of NYC Quick Dry Top Coat
As you can see, using a matte top coat gives a neat look to an already gorgeous mani! I love how it adds versatility!
The MASH Matte Top Coat applied so easily and dried quickly to a nice matte finish! It’s not so thick that it makes your mani look cloudy, which is a big plus in my book! I’ve had that issue with other matte top coats before. It comes in a 0.50 fl oz bottle and is 3-free. You can get your own from the MASH Nails website here. It retails for $7.99 USD. 
What do you think? Will you be purchasing this new matte top coat? Thanks for reading!

    Gorgeous! And yes, I will look into this top coat!!
    I love matte and I have 3 different top coats and looking at your picture make me realize they all have the cloudy issue!

    i reallllly like this one – i love the slightly satiny finish as opposed to the usual totally FLAT finish of a matte top coat. i have been wanting to get the orly satin topcoat but maybe i will give this one a try instead! 🙂

    lol very unique idea. i got me a matte topcoat yesterday since my favorite finish right now is matte. so i can transform all my favorite polishes into matte ones…yaaay
