Comments about Essie Gel Setter Top Coat:

While it goes on smoothly and lasts, when applying it on normal nail laquer (I used a Pacifica and a Debrah Lipman) I could see the nail color on the brush. First time I assumed I simply didn't wait enough time. Second time I waited 20 minutes to apply the top coat and got the same results.

        Great Top Coat Compared To Others

        Comments about Essie Gel Setter Top Coat:

        I've tried so many different top coats but this is the best that I've tried so far. I have thinner nails that tend to peel and I've actually been able to grow my nails out a bit and have them become stronger as a result. Yes I did have 2 nails chip though but it was closer to the end of the week but that was much better than others I've tried. Removing the nail polish isn't any worse than any other top coat either.

        Comments about Essie Gel Setter Top Coat:

        I didn't expect to love this top coat as much as I do!! My all time favorite for a while has been seche vite. Buuuut that top coat gets so thick and bubbly toward the last third of the bottle. So I searched around to find another good top coat and decided to try this one out. I love how this top coat is super shiny, dries relatively fast, makes my nail polish last sooo long, and it's not too thin or too thick of a coat that goes on. Overall this is probably my favorite top coat I've ever used!!

        Comments about Essie Gel Setter Top Coat:

        I was so over buying top coats that did nothing. every polish top coat combo my nails would chip within a day. sometimes hours. I used this over a non essie polish and it's been a whole week with no chips. My nails are super strong to boot. love

              Worth every penny!! I am HARD on my polish but this stuff has made it 11 days and counting with no chips (yes... I ate some potato chips) and still nothing!!! Truthfully, I am getting tired of the color before I get a chip (which has never happened) so I don't want to take it off. But I know what to put on top of my next color.

                I used this with a Essie nail polish. It went on smooth and dried quickly. My polish on my fingers lasted without chipping about 4 days. My toes still look great after 2 weeks

                Comments about Essie Gel Setter Top Coat:

                The best top coat I have used so far. I paint my nails every two weeks and they never chip. It also makes my nails thicker so they don't break as often. The only down side is that the older the nail polish gets, the thicker it becomes and then it becomes messy.
