          Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

          I bought this to go with the Essie nail polish of same category but I applied it over my OPI Infinity topcoat and it made that last longer. OPI infinity isn't long lasting at al (disappointing for the increased price)l but when I put this topcoat over it, the wear was at least a couple of days longer. Essie Gel Couture Topcoat is also glossier than OPI.

              Prevents chips for so long! I've used OPI top coats for years, but decided to give this a try and it's so much better and keeps my manicures fresh so much longer!

                This is absolutely the best gel polish 2 step at home system I've ever tried and I've tried MANY!! This product lasts a minimum of 7-10 days without chipping and for ME that's great as I am a flight attendant and rough with my hands! LOVE this stuff! It's the BEST!

                      The new gell polish from Essie is my new favorite polish to buy cause even a beginner can make their nails look professional with this polish. It's last a heck of a long time and doesn't chips... doe it get better then that?! I do not think so. A+++ from me

                      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.
