Like all the other South American polishes I've tried, this one also has quite a big brush. It's kind of bushy, but not too hard to handle and control. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out this one dries to a matte finish. The great thing about it is the smooth surface after it dries. It reminds me of ManGlaze Fuggen Ugly, but I don't think that one was as smooth.

Another thing I have to mention about this polish is it's staying power. I've never had a matte polish that would survive dishwashing. This one did. Amazing, right? When I think about it, all Brazilian polishes last longer on me than other polishes. If you're not a fan of matte finish, you can always cover it up with top coat and make it glossy. You can see Congo by itself on the left and with Essence Nail Art Sealing Top Coat on the right.
