    Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

    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.

                        I was very disappointed in the display. I could not find the products I use so I am trying this.
                        There is a small cabinet like display on the left hand side, it was empty. Everything was so
                        below eyelevel that I practically had to kneel on the floor. Next time I will have a salesperson
                        do that.

                        Does not dry

                        Literally doesn't dry. I've used it multiple times and found my nails dull and imprinted. I have used it HOURS before bed and still would wake up the next day with imprints in my nails from my bedsheets. Don't buy!
