Happy Saturday! Today I have a matte top coat from MASH Nails to show you. I haven't often used matte polish because it doesn't last as long as a shiny manicure for me, but this one faired very well! I tried it over my Hello Kitty mani and then also tried stamping over it in black for a subtle look. I wore each one for a whole day, was pretty rough on them, and had no chipping, only minimal tip wear. This matte topcoat makes any polish, even with a shiny topcoat, flat and gives it a slight sheen. Having a matte topcoat is way cheaper than buying a bunch of different matte polishes on their own, plus it's nice for anyone who wants a change from the common shiny topcoat or create an edgy monochrome look with stamping.

|I didn't use any topcoat on this after stamping because it will make everything shiny and the image will fade away.|
This polish was really easy to use and it works right away. If you decide to use it over a stamped image like what I did over Hello Kitty, make sure you use a regular topcoat first. I tried doing a new stamping mani with the MASH matte topcoat and the image smeared like crazy.
MASH Matte Top Coat is available at www.mashnails.com for $7.99 and right now there's free shipping (for a limited time).
