Comments about Essence Gel-Look Top Coat:

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!

        Comments about Essence Gel-Look Top Coat:

        I manage a nail blog so I experiment with a lot of top coats and polishes and this (with the exception of 1 that I can think of) is the absolute WORST. It's super thin which makes it difficult and messy to apply. It takes forever to dry and the "gel-look" is no better than a fast dry top coat like Seche Vite. The only good thing about it is that it costs hardly any money. I'll never use this again.

          It definitely creates a gel manicure look, however the dry time is incredibly long. I would recommend this product because of it's price & effectiveness.

                This goes on well, but be prepared to wait for it to dry naturally. Or option 2 dry your nails with a hair dryer.
