      This topcoat has professional shine, it dries quickly and I love the unique brush. A little pricey though. :(

          So happy to finally have a gel top coat that actually works! Usually nail polish chips off within a day on my nails. This top coat keeps my nails chip free for around a week.

              Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

              Easy to apply and a nice smooth finish. I normally do my own gel manicure (with the light) or get it done at the salon. This won't give your nails the strength a gel manicure will, but for about 5 minutes worth of effort, it's definitely worth it! I can see using this system between gel manicures or to try colors I normally wouldn't commit to. I had some minor chipping on my index finger after an hour. I just did another coat of the color and top coat, and it covered the chip nicely. I'm on day three of my manicure, and so far, it still looks good. This is not usual for me with non-gel polish, as I'm very hard on my hands. And with it being so easy to apply, I don't mind if it chips before my shower, as I can just remove it and re-apply.

                      This is the best topcoat I've used. When used with the Gel Couture polish, it lasts a minimum of 14 days. Very shiny and dries quickly.

                        I found that if I reapply this top coat a few days after my initial application, it really does last me about a week!
