    Comments about ULTA Salon Nail X-Dry:

    One of the worst "fast drying" polishes I have ever used. Well over an hour of dry time and it was still tacky. Chipped on the first day. I suggest you don't waste your time with this product.

        Comments about ULTA Salon Nail X-Dry:

        I have thin weak nails and this formula, used as a thin base coat with a quality polish and then as top coat, really works! Even through showering, washing dishes, typing, etc. my nails have held a manicure for over a week. This NEVER happens for me. Thank you Ulta!
        Make sure you are using a fresh bottle as it does tend to get sticky and tacky and not dry as well or quickly when the product has aged.

        Pros

        • Can Apply To Wet Nails
        • Easy To Use
        • Good Value

        Cons

        • Dries slow

        Best Uses

          Comments about ULTA Salon Nail X-Dry:

          Works great as a protective top coat- once it dries. Says it is "quick dry" but ot takes at least 30-45 mins to really dry. You can apply it to wet nails which is awesome, but it smudges easily when not fully dry.

                  I wasn't crazy about this product...for extremely fast drying, I would expect my nails to dry quickly, and to not be tacky. This left my nails tacky for 5 minutes!!! I ended up coating them again with a "known good" top coat.

                      Good product, I needed something to dry faster and stop some of my polishes from chipping so quickly. This worked pretty good.

                          I'm not too picky when it comes to clear polish, and when you can get this on sale, it's a good deal. Goes on easy, does seem to dry quickly. Not too thick. Can be used as a base or top coat. Maybe not as shiny as some, but I'll probably always keep some around.

                            it did not set up. This was with all Ulta products.

                              Do you apply it to wet nail enamel or is it a quick drying topcoat?

                                X-Dry is a quick drying topcoat. Allow color to dry completely, then follow with X-Dry topcoat.

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