Great topcoat that lasts forever and doesn't cost a fortune!
I LOVE this top coat! It does exactly what it says on the bottle - it dries VERY quickly to a gorgeous shine, and it actually does reduce chipping! I use this every time I do my nails no matter what polish I'm using because this top coat always makes it look so much nicer, and it makes my manicure last longer too. The large-ish size of the brush makes it easy to cover your whole nail without missing little spots.
I've had a bottle of this for over a year and it's still super smooth and easy to apply. It hasn't turned all gooey like other clear nail polishes and top coats I've used in the past. You definitely don't have to worry about not getting your money's worth out of this stuff!
Omg... I cannot imagine doing my manicure with out this! My friend recommended this to me and the next day I went to get it and Wow! My manicure lasts longer and so does my pedicure! I'm all about doing my nails at home but its difficult with my hectic life to get really nice nails. This has cut my drying time to 70%. I love it!
I swear by this topcoat!
It is AMAZING!! I have just started my second bottle and love it! My first bottle was my mom's, and was around 1-2 years old before I got it. I never got goopy, that is untill I left it open over night by mistake, even then though it was not full on goop and was still useable. I love that is a drugstore product and in my opion is worth every penny. A must have in your collection.
Inexpensive and dries quickly
I usually use Seche Vite fast dry top coat but picked this one up last week on a trip to Target. It dries in less than a minute; however, you really should wait the full 2 minutes after you apply your polish before using this. What I like most is that there was no polish "shrinkage" once it dried, like I get with Seche Vite. (have you ever noticed that the tips of your polish seem to disappear after using Seche Vite? it's that super duper fast dry process that shrinks the polish). I think I will repurchase this in the near future.
Lasts Less Than 10 Days for Me
Like someone had said, this has a gel consistency so it can get really thick, really quick. Whenever I do a manicure with this topcoat, for the first 3 days, it's quite strong and resilient, but then it seems like the gel makes the polish peel right off if there's even a slight chip. Reminds me of peeling a sticker, the polish tends to just come clean off my nail after the 4th day. So this product is great only if your nail polish doesn't chip. Once I get a slight chip, it's all down hill from there.
Finally a top-coat that does what it says on the bottle
I've never really brought into this whole top-coat business as I have had so many in the past that does not work, so for years I've been going without and unfortunately constantly chipping my nail polish. I was reluctant when I tried this, but after reading an article on Beautylish on how to protect my manicure (http://www.beautylish.com/a/vcgzy/nail-polish-that-wont-chip) I thought I would give it a go and boy does this product work! My nail polish did not chip and lasted for 5 days looking as good as it did on day 1. Inexpensive and does job - what more can you want in a top coat? I would definitively recommend this.
Best topcoat... *manicured* hands down! ^_^
I freaking LOVE this topcoat! For being a drugstore brand I wasn't expecting miracles but it honestly impressed me. It wears forever, until I'm beyond sick of my nail colour lol Plus, it stays shiny! Right now, I've been wearing the same np for 6 days and even tho it's finally chipped the shine has remained.
One thing to keep in mind is the quality of the np underneath, but even then it will wear better than w/o this topcoat!
