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.

          This topcoat was thin, chipped easily and lost it's shine in under a day. Do not buy this. Purchase the 'Good to go' topcoat or the Gel one.

            Does not dry

            Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

            I have had much success with Essie's colored polishes so decided to try no chips ahead. It took a long time to dry and would still smudge hours later, I would wake up in the morning with sheet prints on my nails. I tried using it in the morning, I tried using it after the colored polish had dried, I tried blowdrying my nails with a cool dryer. Very disappointing product for a company that has such excellent colored polishes.

                My nail polish still only lasted one day before it started chipping. I also like a nice shiny finish with a top coat, this one does not offer that.

                    This polish took FOREVER to dry. After several hours of wear, I would still get smudges and bumps in my polish. I would sometimes even wake up in the morning with marks in my polish! Once this finally did dry, it would bubble up like crazy, no matter what polish I wore. Get the Essie Good To Go topcoat instead.
