This product is interesting. I purchased it on sale to try it out and tried it that night. I painted my nails a dark blue (After School Boy Blazer also by Essie) and with one coat my nails were this awesome matte texture. It dried so quickly and looked really cool. I tried it later with a lighter colour and it still worked but the effect was a bit different, not as good as the dark. I then tried it with a metallic polish and my nails looked weeeeiiiiird. They ended up pretty streaky and blotchy. I would recommend sticking with darker colours when using Matte About You.
