I was surprised to discover it had a matte finish. As you can see in the picture, it actually looks sparkly in the bottle. It dries very quickly and it can be a little challenging to spread across the nail evenly.
After it dries, it comes out as a deep gray/charcoal with silver shimmer.

This polish is so different from my usual color choices. I also don't normally pick matte shades, but this is a cool color! I think it would look good with a shiny top coat too.
Side note: it's not so much fun to remove!
