hardly what I would call clear

By dissatisfied

from Spokane

Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Clear Topcoat:

I used first as a top coat over a nail color, noticing when applied that it slightly changed the color of the polish I had applied underneath. I waited for it to dry, hoping the color would lighten back up, but no such luck. It appeared more dull and dark, like dust had settled over the polish color. So I took it all off and decided to put ONLY the top coat on. It was transparent, yes, but not what I would call clear. It appeared a very light grey almost. Made my nails look dirty. I left it on the rest of the day and, upon inspection before going to bed, more than 50% of the polish had chipped away during normal wear and tear of my day. I was very disappointed. I've gotten better quality for cheaper at Sally Hansen.

                        Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Clear Topcoat:

                        Honestly, if this works well for you please let us know what the trick is to make it set properly. It must require an additional product to harden. I will continue to read the comments & reviews to see if anyone has already listed their secret weapon here. I tried ice water, olive oil, and the cool setting on my blow dryer. It technically dries but it stays sticky and does not set properly. I have used this several times now, and waited hours to see if it would harden properly as to not dent or smudge. My polish alone with a base coat dries and hardens better than it does with this top coat. I like the nail lacquer from Ulta thus far, but will not be using their top coat again. I would not repurchase, nor would I recommend anyone to do so.

                            The time it would take to dry would depend on how many coats of lacquer were used prior to the applying the topcoat. If you do not give adequate time to dry in between coats, then it will take much longer for the Clear Topcoat to also dry. We suggest allowing 5 minutes to dry in between coats. Then when you apply the topcoat, allow another 15-20 minutes for it to completely dry.
