                  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.

                    I do NOT recommend this product. My daughter was using it and at first she thought, man this stuff is great! Strengthened her nails, lasted a long time. But then she started noticing white spots developing on one of her nails, then it began to thin and now looks like it's dead, and about to fall off. At first we did not contribute it to this polish, then one of her friends asked her about polish and she recommended this top coat to her. Same thing happened to her friend, we still had not connected the dots, I not knowing about the friend, and hadn't given the polish a thought as being the cause, started putting it on my nails, and boom. Same thing happened to me! Only difference was, I didn't use any other polish under the top coat. I do not recommend this product at all!!!!

                            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.
