These 2 polishes are meant to be worn alone, however they can be worn with shiny top coat, they would look beautiful either way. I used 3 coats for each color since I tend to have more VNL with the length of my nails but if you have shorter nails you can definitely get away with 2. Application of these were nice and smooth, no flooding or pooling. The glitters are suspended well so there is no need to fish. Dry time was excellent! I didn't have much of a chance to test the wear of them but I did wear Hot Pink Floyd for about 24 hours, I showered, washed dishes did some house work and I had no chipping or wear. Jen tested them longer and this is what she had to say about it "This matte polish holds up much better than most and is the same great quality brand base as my other polishes. Tested this matte base for a week and held fine in normal wear and tear. Showed no signs of wear for a couple of days."

I want to point point out that the photos above are not very color accurate, STYLE is a deep dark rich teal. I had a hell of a time getting this to photograph with the correct color, the photo below is fairly accurate, (though the quality leaves something to be desired.) This is a gorgeous polish, it has such a lovely shimmer and the glitters really put off a nice glow, this really needs to be seen in person to truly appreciate it's beauty.

Hot Pink Floyd...
...a matte, velvet bright hot pink jelly with bits of real silver, iridescent glitters in blue, purple & green.
All photos of Hot Pink Floyd are shown as 3 coats.
I have a life long love for pink and this one is just super gorgeous, so of course it is my favorite of the two! I want to note that these do dry with a little bit of texture but it isn't abrasive or catching. I wore it while doing a lot of things around the house and didn't have any issues or feel the need to pick like some glitter polishes make me want to do!
So what are your thoughts? Do you like matte polishes or would you top coat these beauties?
