Comments about Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat:

This nail polish is advertised to be just like when you get gel nails done at the salon- which of course is not true at all. It's not thick, and I feel like even though I applied a thin layer of it and waited forever for it to dry, that I could potentially still smudge it! I wouldn't classify this as any better than any other top coat on the market.

    Comments about Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat:

    Does not shine that well at all compared to other topcoats I have used and it dries sort of bumpy. I tried using different nail polishes with same results. I do not know why they call it 3-D shine because it is the complete opposite. This is just a mediocre run-of-the-mill topcoat that they added some fancy words to it so they can charge closed 10 bucks for it. Save your money and anything else I think would be better. I have been using the Revlon color stay topcoat forever and after trying several other brands, it is still my favorite. The main reason I love it is because it does something that they do not advertise for, which is dries your nail polish superfast. And on top of that, it makes your manicure last so long, almost as good is a gel manicure. With natural nails, the color stay topcoat would make my nail polish last up to 10-12 days before it would start to chip.

      Comments about Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat:

      Applied great, really shiny and smooth, thought I was going to love it! BUT I painted my nails at 2 pm or maybe earlier, and the next morning, I woke up with lines on my nails from sleeping! My nails felt dry but were still tacky I guess. You could definitely get a much better top coat like the Seche vite for this price and it dries in under 30 mins!

      Comments about Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat:

      I bought this because a friend recommended it, but I have not had the same experience. It definitely helped the polish stay on, but it BUBBLES like crazy (and yes, I waited until my polish was dry before applying). And it takes forever to dry. So disappointing. I saw someone said that refrigerating it will help with the bubbling so I'm going to try that just because I don't want it to be a complete waste of money. Ugh.

        I tried this product for the first time. I won't be without it now. The shine is still there, made my polish look better, and last longer. I is a must have now.

                    I'm an active, busy Mother who washes dishes, does chores, etc- without gloves(dont judge me..lol). I polished my nails last Saturday (today is Friday) using SH base coat, SH Complete Manicure is a red color(cant remember the name), and this 3D top coat, and I'm just today experiencing chips. I am super surprised at the lasting power of this top coat. I followed the instructions and had a beautiful finish. Now, in full disclosure, I added an additional coat on Monday night (i really wanted the red to last through the week...nothing tackier than chipped red polish!). I did not have any bubbles, although it takes longer than "regular" top coat to fry, but nothing too crazy. I cant speak on the removal of the top coat since Ill be doing that tonight.
