Ever feel like there are some days where you just don’t want to shine? This matte top coat made by BK will help keep your nail polish looking perfectly finished and chic.
The product is labeled as a “surface oil,” which I think is a bad translation from Chinese for top coat. Indeed, the contents look and smell like a clear lacquer rather than an oil based product.
The brush is a medium width and easy to control. The top coat itself has an almost frosted look to it and has a good viscosity that is a little on the thin side, making it easy to apply.
15 mL are contained in the bottle which is a lot! This is the same size as bottles from OPI, so you can expect to get a lot of use out of this product. Do shake the bottle well prior to using it to ensure that the formula is evenly mixed.
As for how it performs, you can see the results below!
This top coat provides a velvety matte finish that smooths over imperfections well to create an even surface. I liked the relatively short drying time for the formula and thought it did a very good job of doing what it’s supposed to do.
I would suggest that when using this, apply a generous bead to your nail and smooth it over the surface with a gentle touch so that the brush doesn’t cause any streaking with the polish underneath it. This is not a huge concern for those using the top coat over a basic single color manicure, but the brush combined with the top coat formula can mess up delicate nail art if one is not careful.
The general public will love how sophisticated matte nails look, and nail bloggers will love how much easier it is to take photos of their nail art because it cuts down on the amount of reflections you can see on the surface of your nails. If you try it, you won’t be disappointed!
