Q: Can this be used with other nail polishes?

submitted by Kat - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Kat! This Top Coat is formulated to work best with the essie Gel Couture Nail Polishes, but can definitely be used with other nail polishes as well. Hope this helps!

  • A: Hey there Kat! We agree, the Gel Couture Top Coat was made to give the Gel Couture nail enamels a tough, long lasting finish with loads of shine, but it can be use over any nail enamel.

Q: Is this fast drying?

submitted by L - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi there L! The Gel Couture Top Coat is part of the long wear Gel Couture collection. This long wear top coat may actually take an extra minute longer to dry compared to other top coats. As a rule, the longer the wear, the longer a nail product takes to set.

  • A: Hi L! Yes! This is a fast drying top coat that is easily removed with regular nail polish remover. Hope this helps!

This is the only top coat I can trust to not chip on my nails. I have purchased about 3 times. I do my own mani/pedis- might get them done professionally 1-2 times per year. This gel system lasts just as long as when my nail lady uses her polishes. If I need the color to last for vacations, I use this gel system. I’m really hard on my hands, and this doesn’t chip. My pedicure will last till I remove the color (3-4 weeks). I do take care to prep the nail bed, making sure there is not oily residue. The shine from the top coat is awesome, evens out the polish nicely and really resists chipping. I would say it takes 8-10 mins to dry over the Essie gel polishes.

I haven’t found a top coat that gives better staying power than this. After one coat, it makes my nail polish look perfect, even when it was not applied perfectly. It’s as close to a diy at home gel nail that you can give yourself.

Best top coat I've ever had! It's very hard and protective. I was in a hurry to try it and didn't follow the detailed instructions, but was still amazed at how great it was. Now I want the other products!

I love this top coat. It is so shiny and lasts a long time. The only thing to be aware of is how quickly it dries (which is overall a huge perk) but if you don’t put an even coat on during the first application it is tricky to even out afterwards.

I looked up white nail polish and this popped up so I bought it, I didn’t realize it was a clear top coat! This is very misleading… they should’ve made the bottle clear!
1 reply from Essie Team team - 3 months ago
Hi there Nessa! We would be upset too if we were expecting a color instead of a top coat. Frankly, we are surprised the gel couture top coat Would come up in a search for white nailcolor. This quick drying top coat was made to seal and protect the gel couture nail enamels, but it keeps best in an opaque bottle vs. clear. To help consumers with their selection, the words ‘Top Coat’ appear on the cap. For a great, opaque, crème finish white, try the color ‘blanc’.

I’ve had gel nails done a couple of times but I prefer to do my nails myself. I’ve used this top coat with the Essie gel colors, Olive & June polish, and even cheap Sally Hansen polish. It works well with all and I don’t see chips for about a week. It does seem to cause a little shrinkage but nothing too bad.

I am on my fourth bottle & although I have two more, I have been unable to locate any more. I have seen reviews that said nails were stained. I use Essie base coat & have NOT had a staining problem. I highly recommend this product. I must also add that I am not a professional but have used Essie products since they came on the market.

Looks shiny & smooth but doesn’t last long .. chipped polish with a few days .. bummer
1 reply from Essie Team team - 6 months ago
Hi there Desi! We can see this wouldn’t be the result you were hoping for…the gel couture top coat is a quick drying top coat that seals, helps protect, and adds an ultra-glossy flawless finish. Applied to 2 coats of gel couture nail color, your mani should last for well over a week. If you would like to speak to us directly about your recent purchase, give us a call @ 866-313-7845

I absolutely love this!! I’m so happy I found this product. I was going to spend a lot of money on gel machines until I found this Essie product. It dried my nails within minutes and it has this perfect gel like shine with it. I love it!! Can’t wait to get more colors to put on my nails. It’s day 4 and so far it’s been great no chips and still so shiny.

As a homemaker, I need a polish that can hold up to constant abuse and this polish is a winner. Lasted almost a week which is pretty impressive to me! I’m sure it’d last a bit longer if your hands aren’t repeatedly being submerged in hot soapy water! Stays shiny which makes it feel high end. Def worth the price tag.
