Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat - Review

Press Sample

Hi everyone! Today I have something a little different to show you. 

Wax On Topcoat by Pretty & Polished is top coat with a wax finish. 

Here is Pretty & Polished's description of the product:
'Wax on Top Coat works over any nail polish to give you that wax finish as if you dipped your nails into hot candle wax! This wax effect topper can also be described as a "satin finish".'

I was excited to try this product and decided to try it over a glitter polish because I love matte topcoat with glitter and this is similar. 
I used Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker (which was actually my first indie polish and still one of my favourites!) and then one coat of Wax On Top Coat.

Application was a breeze and the formula was very nice to work with. I found this to be quick drying too. 

Now lets talk about the result! It's definitely as described, not shiny but not matte either. There is some sheen left and it is gorgeous! 

To show you the effect, here is a comparison over a regular black creme polish (I used Kiko 275). I used one coat of each topcoat. 
I am wearing my go-to regular topcoat, Revlon Quick Dry, on my pointer finger.
On my middle and ring fingers is Wax On. 

On my little finger is Butter London Matte topcoat.

As you can see, here the difference is striking. Wax On Topcoat is far from shiny but not flat matte either.

I think this is a great way to change up polishes and wear them a little differently.
