    Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

    still on fence as i have said about the base coat and the color.. but i will probably keep for quick appications and nights out.. not sure yet.. if it chips in one day like it has been the last two times, it may go back because that is just no bueno. but the top coat dries super fast and doesnt fade itself out from my sanitizer at work. hopefully third times a charm.. running out of ways to apply it to make it last..

          Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

          I LOVE this. I had a Sally Hansen one before, and that was good, but this Essence one is just as good (if not a little better) and it's cheaper! The reason I think this is a bit better than the SH one is because it really makes my nails dry faster. My nailpolish always takes a while to dry on me for some reason (doesn't matter the brand, all of them take a while) and this top coat really speeds it up. My nails are also nice, shiny, and very classy looking! Will definitely repurchase.

            This product is decent for the price. It dries fairly quickly and has a nice glossy finish.

              Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

              I never do my own nails bc I can't make them look professionally done and I don't go to the salon bc I can't justify spending that much money on a manicure. I bought the base, color, and top coat from this brand and I am shocked. The quality is amazing and it does look like a professional gel manicure. I will be stocking up on all the colors and will even be trying the plumper. Try it! Can't beat the price either!!! Bought them on buy two get one free.

                  TOO thick and lacks fluidity to be truly versatile. Their "puffy" gell top coat is top drawer, this is basement.

                    i didn't think this lasted any longer than any other basic clear polish. to be fair, i only used it over regular polish, not over actual gel polish, but it chipped the next day. i have much better luck with seche vite as a top coat

                    I usually have problems with polish chipping after a day or two. This top coat makes it last longer and keeps a great shine for days.
