          A top coat that works. I wouldn't say you actually get a result that would fool people into thinking you've got gel nails, but it's a decent top coat, and the price is nice!

                  Comments about Essence Gel-Look Top Coat:

                  I have tried hundreds of top coats and this one is hands down the best I've ever used. My wonderful and beloved stylist @ Ulta in Kendall recommended this to me while she was removing my gel manicure. This top coat makes your nails feel, look, and act like you have gel polish on but without the expense, the damage, or the limitations. I did my nails 10 days ago using KISS nail stickers (which usually start to peel off within a few days) and I applied this over it, and I've reapplied it once and my nails still look absolutely perfect. I'm in awe of how amazing this stuff is and how inexpensive it is. My nails are harder and stronger with this top coat on than ANY nail strengthening / hardening formula that exists - my nails are very thin and flexible and break super easily so I have literally tried everything. I have at least 15 different types of top coats and strengtheners, of all prices, and nothing works better than this. It doesn't bubble, it stays shiny, it makes colors pop and look brighter. It's absolutely phenomenal. Others mentioned in their reviews that this takes a long time to dry but I haven't noticed that this takes any longer to dry than any other non-fast drying top coat. I always let my nails set for a good 30 minutes to an hour before I do anything that could damage them.

                  I like that it applies smoothly with no bubbles and dries pretty fast with a shiny topcoat to the likes of more expensive brands like Seche Vite. Love the affordability, definite go-to brand for the price and look!
