My favorite top coat ever, but hard to use the 2nd half of bottle

4 out of 5 stars
Would recommend
JenhikesMT - 7 days ago
I really love this top coat. I have tried others but this really is a standout product. It dries quickly, gives a thick, high-gloss shine that definitely looks gel-like, and really keeps chipping at bay. But like others have said, the 2nd half of the bottle is much trickier to use. It becomes thick, gloppy and very stringy. You can still use it for awhile and it will look alright if you are really patient, but it gets so frustrating and hard to work with that it's honestly just worth it to me at this point to repurchase. I will be interested to see how my next bottle fares, as I do paint my nails a lot more now so perhaps I will go through this next bottle faster and negate that issue? However, if it happens again I might not repurchase because it's irritating to spend all that time on your nails and then have a stringy topcoat that takes a lot of effort to perfect.

The only thing this did was make my nails very shiny. My big toe nail polish chipped 5 days after using this and two other nails chipped 8 days later. I always use OPI Top & Base Coat and can go almost a month before my bail polish chips. I do not recommend this!

Hi there Miss B! We can see why these results would be disappointing for you...The gel-setter top coat should give your nails plenty of shine and help to make your manicure look its best longer. To reduce the chance of chipping, skip the cocktails. Use the full essie nail care and color system for optimal wear. “Cocktailing” with products from other brands can result in shorter wear time as these formulas are not developed to work together and may not get along. And to keep your mani looking great longer, reapply your top coat every few days.

this is a great top coat. It is very reasonably priced and is very durable. I can't afford gel mani's but this a great substitute.

Best top coat ever!

5 out of 5 stars

Melissa A - 8 months ago
I use CND Sticky base coat, followed by 2-3 coats of either OPI or Essie polish, and then I seal it on with a coat of Essie Gel Setter top coat. My nails last an entire week with no chips. I reapply the top coat in three days to reseal everything in. I’ve tried many top coats including Seche Vite and this one is by far the best!

Thick, quick drying, blurring (great for nails with ridges)

bbievqz - 9 months ago
Definitely repurchasing! - - It's a thick formula and I feel as it gets thicker the more you use it so you have to work fast when you apply it. - When i apply this topcoat at night and go to sleep soon after, there are no smudges! - I also love how if there are smudges or bumps before i apply the top coat (or you have textured nails), the top coat is thick enough to blur all those little imperfections! - top coat does not create bubbles! (which is so great bc i used to use OPI's top coat and that one bubbled up so bad) - also very glossy and i love that - side note, ive used a little more than half of the top coat now (i dont do my nails without it)

Thick, Shiny Top Coat!

ErinD - 10 months ago, Verified purchaser
This polish is the best top coat I have ever used. It's thick, shiny, and looks like I went to the nail salon. It even survived a day of rock climbing. Once my nails eventually started to chip (on day 5), I just touched up my nails and put on another layer of this top coat and they looked almost good as new!
