Review: Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love

So about a month ago I went to Walmart and decided that I wanted a matte top coat. Reason being was that I have been really into matte nails lately and don't want to go on the hunt for a matte nail polish, they can get pretty expensive. I knew Hard Candy had a matte nail polish, but I couldn't remember how much it was. So off to Walmart I went! Now, I know some people HATE Walmart because theirs are shoddy and gross, but the ones near me are really nice actually. So I dare to brave them, even at 3am :P.

Anyhoodles. So, this nail polish is only $6! I know it may seem like a lot, but if you think about it, its really not. Considering the price of some actual nail polishes by themselves, or even a regular shiny top coat can be more than $6, its crazy. Thats beyond the point.  This bottle had a little cardboard box on the top of it and it just says NEW Matte Top Coat. Give any color a matte finish. The top coat itself its cloudy and not clear, so when I first bought it, I thought it was going to mess up my nail polish. Needless to say, I was a bit uneasy about it.

Boy oh boy was I surprised! This is an amazing top coat! Holy crap, I am not even going to lie! When I use a regular shiny top coat, my nail polish can chip WITHIN HOURS, but using this my nails take DAYS to chip! You better believe I will always have a bottle of this in my nail polish arsenal! Now just  as a warning, I did find a nail polish that was still shiny looking under the top coat, so that was a bummer. Then again its not a big deal to me. 1 or 2 nail polishes not look 100% matte, I can deal with that. Its not like I bought the nail polish itself to me matte. Pft no. =^_^=

For $6 you get 10.3 mL or .35 fl. oz. The bottle itself reminds me of an Essie nail polish, but that is another blog post.  All in all, I give this Matte Top Coat a 10/10. I really do love it and I love how it makes me nail polish last more than a few hours. Its definitely worth the $6.

Now, for those of you who do not have a Walmart near you, you are kind of out of luck with this unfortunately because it is exclusive to Walmart only. Unless you can find it on Amazon or eBay. That is the one thing that does kind of stink about it.

The nail polishes that I used along with Matte-ly In Love were Rimmel London Lasting Finish Pro in Violet Metal & Sally Hansel Xtreme Wear in Crushed.
