Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

If you can't find time or make it for your typical gel mani, this is good in a pinch! It doesn't last too long, - couple days max. But the price is amazing and it does the trick! And it does look glazed and Thick like a gel manicure.

          Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

          Doesn't do what it claims. I think if I could get 3 coats of it to dry then it would kind of have that plump-gel look, but the most I could get was 2 coats and even then it was semi tacky after an hour. It does have a great shine though, which I love. I just used it over top of an Essence polish yesterday (I have used this over top of some OPI polishes as well and it still chipped) and today after some light housework and washing dishes it is already chipping on my left hand... which is not my dominant hand either. I wouldn't buy this for anything but the shine.

            Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

            To me, this is the exact same stuff as the gel-coat top coat, which I am totally ok with since it works just the same. I thing they plump equally. The good thing is when they are out of stock of one, I can pick up the other and get the same effect. I love this product because I can paint my nails, and get a whole week out of my polish without any chipping! The price of this is amazing!

              Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

              This is the BEST top coat that I've ever used! I work as a pet groomer, and my polish (with a different brand's top coat) would start chipping badly within a day or two. I used 1 coat of this product and my nails look absolutely flawless 5 days later.

                To get the plumpy look I would suggest two coats. I actually did three coats and was very pleased, just took a while to dry and has lasted me almost two weeks!
