Disclaimer: I've never used an Essie topcoat before. BUT I have used several other regular topcoats including the most popular fast-drying one (and the only one I've been using for years) SV. AND I have only had this Essie one for a couple of hours. So far, I am super impressed because unlike the o...see moreof the reviewer's review

My all time hesitation to even doing my own manicures is how short they last on my nails. I do A LOT of chores. Cooking, lots of washing of the dishes, laundry, you name it! My manicures would last 1-2 days tops before they begin to peel. I am on day 3 and there are no chips other than the ones I p...see moreof the reviewer's review

I was pretty skeptical about this product, but wanted to try it anyways. I workout hard, do dishes by hand, cook, clean, and obvi shower daily. These activities always result in my nails chipping within 24 hours of my painting them. I am proudly announcing that I painted my nails this past Saturday ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this after disliking the harsh removal process for shellac nails. Regular manicures normally chip the next day for me, and this has gone five days chip free. (Including packing a moving truck) Make sure not to apply it while outside or under a fan, as it starts to gel up quickly, and will g...see moreof the reviewer's review

I WAS having trouble with bubbles in my gel-setter

This product is fanatic! About halfway through the bottle I started getting bubbles on my nails. I found the best solution for this. Don’t let the brush hit the sides of the bottle on the way out. Just put a big glob on your nail and cover the nail with that and don’t reapply! No bubbles!see moreof the reviewer's review

This is the best top coat I have found. It gives nails a shiny glossy chip resistant shield. Totally worth the money!

I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Easy to use and dries very quickly! I did this dishes/laundry 30mins after applying and my nails were still perfect. However, it does not last very long. I usually get 3-5 days before it starts to peel off. It’s great for a quick manicure, but they do say it last...see moreof the reviewer's review
