        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!

                barely made it two day, not the advertised two weeks. Better off with regular polish, base and top coat.

                Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

                This is my first experience with Essie Gel Couture line. I have been a loyal CND Shellac user for 3 years. Prior to that, no brand of traditional nail polish would stay on my nails longer than 24 hours. I decided to give this a try since Shellac is pricey and time consuming. It definitely stays on the nails. I am on day 7 and only have very minor chipping/wear along the tips of my nails. That includes some dishwashing and hairwashing, too! However, the shine has worn off a bit and the finish isn't nearly as crystal clear and glossy as with a shellac manicure. So it is definitely better than any regular polish (I'll never use those again!), but not as long-lasting and shiny as a Shellac manicure.

                        This is a great top coat for any nail polish. My nail polish has lasted at least a week and a half. I do retouch weekly.
