    I'm not sure if this product really works, I used it only once and it chiped the next day.
    I will try it again and see.

                Will get at least Five days wear with little to no chipping. Amazing for a home product. I do not yet know how well this will come off. I have not tried yet.

                  This top coat goes on smoothly but takes forever to dry. It did not prolong the life of my polish like I thought it would. It is not worth the extra cost. I'll go pack to regular Essie Top Coat polish.

                    Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

                    I'm taking a break from getting gel manicures. I am simply painting my own nails and using this as the top coat. It covered all the ridges left from the removal of the gel polish. Not quick drying (took about 45 minutes), but definitely made the regular nail polish shine and made my nails appear smooth despite the ridges I know are underneath.
