              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

              Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

              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!

              Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

              It leaves bubbles in the top coat even with the thinnest layer. My nail polish now looks bumpy and gross instead of smooth and shiny. I will never waste my money on Essie products again.

              This made my nail polish last a week+ through washing the dishes, daily workouts, and general daily life. No chips, and still stayed shiny and fresh looking!

                Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

                I was shocked this has so many not so good reviews. I always wished I could do my own nails but they chip the very next day. I bought this along with an Essie color used it and it didn't chip the slightest for four days at least. Now to say that's not great is just crazy. Maybe the people who reviewed badly expected more but I realize we use our hands a lot and no matter how good a top coat is chipping will eventually happen after numerous handwashings ect. Now this did seem a bit more tacking then others but I don't mind it dries just fine. I am trying it today with a non Essie nail polish and see what that does. I am hopeful. Is buy this again and again.
