Special note... If you are new to matte formulations, the issue of drying times and basecoats was addressed in ALU's original Zoya MatteVelvet posting by Leo Reyzis, Art of Beauty VP.

"The film properties of matte formulas are not consistent with the properties of regular polish therefore when one gets applied over the other there is a different rate of drying which causes distortions in the surface tensions of both films, best seen as ridges and valleys that will form on the polish surface (as well infinitely endless drying time). If a basecoat is still desired you must wait for base to dry completely for matte formulas to be applied on top. This may help extend wear however the surface must be completely dry and residue free prior to applying matte formula."  

Zoya GetEven - Ridge Filling BaseCoat is a good choice for use as a matte nail polish base coat.
