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

        Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

        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.

            I´ve tried other brands that really do not work for me.This one is inexpensive and really in a non LED top coat makes home manicure last longer

                Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

                This top coat along with the base coat is seriously legit. It is by far the best inexpensive product I've used. I've used many products and this one tops them all. My manicures last a full week. Usually with other products they would only last about 3 many 4 days if I was lucky. I highly recommend this product ladies.

                  Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

                  So good!!!! this is the best top coat i have ever used. it gives your nails a gel appearance and helps prevent chipping. this top coat helps me get 7-10 days out of my polishes. my nails chip very easily, unless i am using this as the top coat. it is kinda a pain to remove. it almost reminds me of taking off glitter, it takes a little while. but thats because it lasts so long, so I'm okay with that! choose this over that gel-like plumping coat by essence, this works better and helps the polish last, whereas the other just gives the nails an appearance of gel nails but no lasting power. hope this helps!

                    I would buy this by the gallon if I could! I swear by this gel top coat, I have turned all of my friends onto it. It works great. When I paint my nails my polish would chip off almost immediately. When I use this and take my time doing it, I get a week minumum out of my polish. I have learned the trick to using this is to paint a cap on the end of your nails, and then my paint will stay on beautifully for a week or more. Such a good buy!
