Doesn’t dry, does bubble

This top coat is the worst! I don’t know if there’s a secret to getting it to dry, but three hours later I put my hair back and my nails were all marked. It also is by far the bubbliest top coat I’ve ever used - completely ruined the look of my mani. Finally, it’s freaking impossible to remove. Bonus points for how well it stays on I guess, but the amount of acetone I went through was ridiculous. The only perk is that it’s quite thick, so although they looked terrible my nails felt protected.

Monika - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
So this will sound like a contradictory statement but just bare with me. It did make my nail polish last and it barely chipped. However, it almost acted like a peel off base coat. On the side of the nail, I noticed the edges I could flip up. Not just the top coat, but the two layers of polish underneath. It was almost like the top layer penetrated the color layers. As long as I didn't mess with it, it was fine. But if the corner snagged, the whole nail was coming off. I could peel all the polish off in one stroke if I wanted to. So it made for easy removal, but I don't want something that will pool in the edges and potentially won't make the nail polish last which is what I want a top coat to do. Also the brush was HUGE so it made it hard to do nice even layers.

Hi Monika, thank you for your review. For best results, please use defy & Inspire base coat, All About the Base, followed by 2 coats of your favorite nail lacquer finishing with one coat of the defy & Inspire top coat, Over the Top. If you continue to have issues please DM us on Facebook or Instagram to discuss more.

I'm on my second bottle of Over The Top. I was very happy with the first bottle, and used it up. My second bottle is very thick and I get many bubbles every time. I never got bubbles with the first bottle. Ugh. I would recommend this product IF it were more consistent.

Hi Karen, sorry about that! We'd love to replace Over The Top with a new bottle. Please reach out to us on Facebook or Instagram @defyandinspire. Have a great day! -D&I

Tons of bubbles in the bottle and on the nails, and it came off in huge pieces less than 12 hours later. Go for Orly instead if you want a cruelty free nail polish.

Hi there! Thanks for giving Over The Top a try. We're sorry you didn't have a great experience. We recommend applying the top coat once your nail lacquer has fully dried, to avoid any bubble formations. Follow us on Instagram @defyandinspire for more tips & tricks! Have a great day -D&I

I brought the set of base, polish and top from this line to the salon and had my nails done. I sat for an hour and they were still sticky when I left. A few hours later I put nail oil on them, hoping it would help dry the polish. I went to bed and woke up with them all textured. What is the secret to getting this polish to dry?! LOVE having less chemicals, but if it never hardens, what’s the point?

Hi Cindy! We're so sorry you didn't have a great experience with our polish, we'd love to get to the bottom of this. Would you mind letting us know which shade you used?

Most reviews state this never dries, which I agree. However, I use a quick dry top coat over this top coat and my polish ALWAYS lasts a week + with no chips! I love it, best I’ve ever used and I paint my nails weekly!

Amazing product and keeps my nail polish from peeling and chipping for a week now. A week of harsh usages of my hands, including dishwashing, gardening and I even use my finger nails to scrape some hard to remove strove stains. It dries just fine for me. For people have drying issue, the only reason i can think of is probably the nail polish you use. In my case, I also use plant based, natural and healthy (at least what they claims) polish. My guess is water based too coat does not dry well on top of traditional polish. Chemistry is hard :) It’s hard to find healthier nail polish that both looks good and stays on. Give this a try and good luck!

Candice - 2 years ago
I came here to see the reviews to see if I was doing something wrong. I made sure to wait at least 10 minutes before coats and wanted to make it work and it still didn’t dry. I thought extra time and a thin coat would work. I’ve knicked my nails and am able to put my finger print on it after an hour. I’m going to have to start over another day with new polish. I don’t understand the 5 star reviews. . Super disappointed in this top coat.

I am honestly not sure why I continue to use this top coat whenever paint my nails? It never dries fully even after 30 mins....I love the idea of a less toxic polish but this unfortunately is just a waste.

Hi there! Thank you for your feedback. We recommend waiting 2-3 minutes in between applying layers of nail polish to allow for drying time. We also recommend to apply the nail polish in thin layers, this will help with drying too. For more information and tips, please follow us on Instagram @defyandinspire! Thank you, have a great day!

It never dries. An hour after using this top coat I messed up nails on both of my hands but trying to get something out of my purse. It doesn’t say it’s fast drying so I wasn’t expecting that at all, but you figure it’d dry EVENTUALLY. But it doesn’t. Now it’s been four hours and I can still make indents in the polish that remains on my nails. It’s ridiculous.

It went on without clumps, dried pretty quick, and made my polish look smooth. It only lasted a day, though. I didn't do anything during the day that should have made this happen. I wasn't expecting gel quality, but it definitely wasn't what I expected.

dawnray - 3 years ago
I purchased one of the 2 Makes 3 Defy & Inspire polish sets at Target hoping for a less toxic option for some color on my nails and LOVED IT. It was quick drying and it seemed that I could get away with one coat when in a hurry. It wasn't super long-wearing for me, but that was no big deal because I could just refresh it with another coat over the next few days. I thought I would give the top coat a try, just to see if it made the polish last longer and noticed a big difference. Not sure how long it would wear without a touch-up, but the fact that my fingernails don't hurt and the smell isn't overwhelming or too long-lasting is awesome. And again, the fact that it's so quick to dry means I can slap a coat on whenever I need some quick color. Easy to remove as well! I'm sold. <3
