    This polish is so sticky even after it dries! I wonder if it's just this one bottle I bought, but I don't want to buy another to find out.

      Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Clear Topcoat:

      I had to reapply several times because it is just a dull top coat. It also takes a very long time to completely dry. I applied at 6 PM and went to bed hours later, but still woke up to sheet marks on the top coat itself. Disappointing, considering its value with BOGO. Will definitely stick with Essie Good to Go instead.

          NEVER DRIES!! No shine at all, nail Polish underneath chips and globs, smudges and smears even HOURS later. Would not recommend. My $2 wet & wild blows this out of the water.

              Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Clear Topcoat:

              I've used the ulta brand base coat and nail color before and was impressed. I bought the top coat on sale and have been very disappointed. It does not go on very smooth, takes FOREVER to dry, and even when you think it is finally dry will continue to smudge. I applied this in the afternoon, went to sleep later that night (thinking my nails were dry) and woke up to smudged nails. Another thing-there is no shine at all with this product. My nails looked better before adding this. I won't even finish the bottle-going to invest in something better. I even prefer Sally Hansen to this by miles.

                  I ordered online, and I wish I had looked at the reviews first. Literally let set for 3 hours and it STILL wasn't dry! Returned it the first chance I had!!

                    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.

                          A:

                          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.
