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 Kooks'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 Danceélot'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 Christinerm561'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 Ballet slippers's review

        Going strong on day 5! I've washed dishes, typed a lot, washed my hair several times, worked out... My nail polish hasn't chipped at all. I can see the slightest signs of wear at the very edges of my nails if I look reaaaally closely, and it's more like erosion than chipping. I could probably add a ...  see moreof MarissaR's review

          This top-coat is amazing! I'm just using it with any old nail polish and it dries faster and lasts longer than ANY other top-coat I have EVER used! I LOVE IT!  see moreof sfgutman's review

            Bought 2 weeks ago. I used it with Essie base coat, opi base coat and sinful top coat and the co!ors of all those brands. It chipped and peeled after 3 hrs. All I did each time was wash my hands and put dishes away. Zoo very ticked off. None of your products last on my dehydrated or fresh filed nail...  see moreof Auntie Gingy's review

              I’ve been using this topcoat for the last two years and it’s my favourite! It keeps your nails looking glossy, as well as making them last 5-7 days!  see moreof Eleanor's review
