    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.

                Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

                I read five reviews about this top coat. I decided to buy it. I LOVE this product. I am on my second bottle. It is only top coat that keeps my nail polish on for at least ten days. I couldn't wear nail polish because it would peel within days. Trust me I tried every brand and nothing worked. This is so easy to use with no lamps to use and it is quick drying. I just got a compliment on my nails yesterday.

                  Liked how easily it went on and the top coat gave it great shine....but it chipped by the next day. Very disappointed especially after reading several reviews of long lasting wear.

                      Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

                      This topcoat is pretty good, one of the better "no light gel topcoats." It's very shiny and thick, and dries quickly to a hard finish. I usually reapply every 2 or 3 days over my mani. This is very similar to Essie gel setter topcoat. I think Essie gel couture is better than OPI infinite Shine.

                      Good for extra protection.
