    Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

    I was contemplating at-home gel and dip kits before I gave this a try - a last ditch effort before I sunk more money into developing a DIY manicure process that actually lasted. While I do not get the two weeks as Essie advertises, I get a solid week of wear - far longer lasting and more resilient than a typical nail polish. I use it as instructed - no base coat, just two coats of the color and one of the top coat. Great results.

      Essie's Couture Top Coat is a favorite. It goes on smoothly, easily and dries quickly. My polish lasts up to two weeks. My nails look fresh and shiny.
      I highly recommend this product.

        Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

        I really wanted this system to work. However, it did not. The system itself was easy to use. The polish went on smooth. The color was beautiful. The next day I went to church served food at a reception. When I came home the tips of two were chipped. Very disappointed.

            Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

            I have horribly thin nails. Nail polish used to always chip within 24 hours of application. That is, until I discovered this top coat! I don't even use it with the rest of the Essie gel couture product line; it works wonders over regular polishes, too! I hope Essie never stops making this product. I would be lost without it!

                Best top coat ever! Lasts longer than any top coat I've previously used. Leaves a lush shine. Have had admiring comments on how brilliant my nails look. I attribute this to the Essie Top Coat!

                    I have had this applied by a professional, but have applied it myself. Love the brush! Love that it dries in less than 10 minutes without having to be baked under a lamp.
