So this was part of my haul from Models Own 50% off sale. The polish itself was the same as the others I found, when it dried it did look matte. I had to do three coats of the polish to make sure it wasn't patchy. The photo above was taken a day after painting and as you can see the polish doesn't look very matte. It did for about 12 hours and then seemed to loose its matte finish. Admittedly it isn't as shiny as a typical black polish but certainly not matte.
