      Most "gel like" polishes tend to bubble when they dry no matter what I did. This goes on smoothly.

          Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

          This product is ineffective. Within a few days I would get these weird lines on the majority of my nails. This happened every time i used the top coat - no matter the polish. And I would wait for it to completely dry. Also it looks smaller than other top coats so just spend the extra $4-7 and get one from Essie or Orly, etc.

            Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

            I've tried different techniques to make this work. It leaves bubbles, too thick, has gel hair like strings everywhere. It's like a cobweb

              Comments about Essence Gel-Look Plumping Top Coat:

              This is the best top coat I've ever used; better than the most expensive brands. I use it with every manicure. The best part is the low price. This is not a product that falls in the "get what you pay for" category.

              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.
