      Worst Top Coat I've Ever Used

      Pros

        • Does Not Work
        • Messy
        • Never Dries
        • Strong Odor

        Best Uses

          Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

          This is easily the worst top coat I've ever used. It dries pretty slowly, but takes 12+ hours to fully cure. I've used it twice now, and it's nearly impossible to avoid getting impressions from fabrics or dents from making contact with stuff while it's curing. For example, I painted my nails at 9AM the other day and went through my whole day without any damage. But when I woke up THE NEXT MORNING, I had imprints from my sheets all over my nails. This is a freaking terrible product.

            This top coat chips very easily. I painted my nails before work the other morning and they were all chipped by dinner time that night... I have an office job and don't do much that could contribute to the chipping.

                Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

                I tried Essie products first in a blind study I am an RN and nail polish usually just comes right off a a day or two/chips/peels away
                Essie products stay on and look great for a lot longer-my right hand is my dominant hand and right now the nail polish I applied on Sunday is still looking great
                I did add the top coat this time so I think that added to the length of time for the look

                    This polish was very thin. It took forever to dry and still was prone to indents over 8 hours after application.

                    Horrible

                    Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

                    So very upset with how the top coat dried. Every application I've put on has left my nails with bumpy bubbles on the top coat. It looks disgusting and I refuse to let it ruin any more of my manicures.
