Review: Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love Top Coat

It always amazes me how a "glossy" nail polish can instantly transform into a matte finish. As far as matte top coats go, I only own the China Glaze Matte Magic.

I am a HUGE fan of Hard Candy! I own the Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer, Face Primer, and a few of their polishes. I've always wanted to try the Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love Top Coat, but every Wal-Mart I went to, always seemed to be sold out! So I was extremely excited to receive a bottle from Hard Candy!

$4.00 at Walmart &

I decided to go ahead and apply the matte topcoat directly onto my current manicure, since it already had a glossy top coat to it. I wanted to see if in fact the Matte top coat would still be able to transform my ultra glossy Sally Hansen top coat.
Sure enough, it did!

1 coat was all I needed to achieve this matte finish. I had no trouble applying the polish; the formula was smooth and streak-free . It dried rather quickly (which is another thing I love about this polish) to a soft matte finish. What's even more amazing is that I was actually able to see the transform in action!

 I also did my "water test". Water test?! This means that I observe how well polishes work under different circumstances; showers, washing dishes, etc! I wore this the entire day yesterday and didn't experience any chipping!

Overall, if matte nail polishes are something you like, I think you may LOVE this! For those who have never tried matte top coats or are curious, I encourage you to head out to your nearest Wal-Mart ASAP and try to find these little gems! The name really does speak for itself! This is a definite keeper in my book! Hope this helps!
