    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.

        This is a great product and extends the life of your manicure. It is best used with the Essie products, but I've used with other polishes and works well too. Worth the money!

        Comments about Essie Gel Couture Top Coat:

        Honestly i dont see how this got bad reviews. The only con i personally noticed was the very very tip/edge of your nail will show wear about 3 days or so into after application. Other than that this has been a great product for me. I have had terrible trouble with other polishes/topcoats before and by far this is the best one. I do have to say make sure you use the essie GEL color with this product. Otherwise i do not see this working correctly for it is made to pair with the essie brand GEL COLOR.

                  I have been using the regular Essie polish as it stays on for a week, This really does extend the wear time. It lasts for 10 to 11 days for me.
