          Will buy again. It does make your nail polish last longer and I love it so far. You do not need a thick coat the thinner coat the better or it will produce bubbles.

            Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat:

            The Gel Nail Top Coat works surprisingly well and better then the higher priced gel products. This entire brand continues to deliver and the Nail Gel Coats (Top and Base) go on smoothly, covers like glass, with a shine that would be the envy of every nail salon. The price is around $3.. The jury is still out on exactly HOW long these last....your nails will eventually begin chipping around 2 weeks after application and this depends upon how you handle those 10 fingers!!

                For the price it worked pretty good. It dried quickly and gave me a shiny coat.

                It is a basic top coat, it doesn't really last super long.

                All essence nail polishes have great brushes that make it easy to apply. The nail polish is also super shinny if that's what you're into. But it isn't as long lasting as it claims it is. It helped me keep my nail polish on one or two days extra. I say it's a good top coat.

                  I use this as a topcoat with any nail polish combination, it drys quickly, so you can apply and be out the door in a few minutes, only Con is it does shrink just a tad at the edges, if I touch up my color after a few days of ware, I slap a coat of this on and it shines them back up again and blends the touched up edges. Great Value for the cost!
