I got a bottle of Essie's mattifying (is that a word?) top coat, Matte About You, after playing with some of Zoya's matte polishes and really liking them. (OMG Posh is gorgeous.) Last night, I did my nails with Sally Hansen's Deep Blue Sea, a new color in their Xtreme Wear line. DBS is a pretty foil-y polish, sort of a light steel blue. I tried one nail with the matte top coat just to see the difference. This particular polish looks better shiny, but with the matte it's still pretty, looking kind of like crushed velvet. I tried to get a picture, but in the picture the difference isn't really apparent. I can see this top coat adding a nice texture to a plain color.

I applied it on top of Seche Vite and the matte effect came through just fine, by the way. So if you like your fast-dry top coats, you can throw this on top and still have it turn matte.

I was in Walgreens today - the Sally Hansen shatters are in. I'm not a shatter wearer myself, but they've got some great colors, and the display was almost empty already! They also had a ton of Hard As Nails for $1.99 each. It's technically Big-3 free, but has formaldehyde resin, which from what I've been reading isn't considered the same as formaldehyde?

Still intend to post my mani pics, just been lazy. :D
