Does not dry.

Comments about ULTA Salon Nail X-Dry:

Used as a top coat, over dry polish. It did not dry - it just stayed tacky and soft. I had to take all of my polish off and start my manicure over.

        Comments about ULTA Salon Nail X-Dry:

        I try to look past negative reviews and give things a try, but this was the biggest waste of time EVER! My nails basically never dried as there was a tacky texture to the polish. I even applied a thin layer and tried this product twice. Waste of precious time. Don't buy.

          After the top coat I use this to seal my nail design (jewelry on nails) it helps that rhis speeds up the drying process. It helps my design last until my next appointment

                Comments about ULTA Salon Nail X-Dry:

                It dries quickly and makes my 99c nail polish last for days! I've tried other topcoats before that will literally start chipping and peeling after a day but this stuff got a single coat of polish through the week until I could find the time to do my nail art. It worked okay for putting on designs but I think I was applying the coats too quickly on top of each other so I still ended up with that weird textured feeling on my nails after sleeping in them. Works great for making polish last and helps cure it faster too!

                  I am not the one that leaves reviews, but the top coat was HORRIBLE. I agree that it worked better as a base coat and sped up the dry time, but completely horrible as a top coat!

                      This product should be applied over nail lacquer to speed drying, prevent chipping/peeling, and provide UV protection against color fading.
