    Does not dry

    By Shess

    Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

    I have had much success with Essie's colored polishes so decided to try no chips ahead. It took a long time to dry and would still smudge hours later, I would wake up in the morning with sheet prints on my nails. I tried using it in the morning, I tried using it after the colored polish had dried, I tried blowdrying my nails with a cool dryer. Very disappointing product for a company that has such excellent colored polishes.

        My nail polish still only lasted one day before it started chipping. I also like a nice shiny finish with a top coat, this one does not offer that.

            This polish took FOREVER to dry. After several hours of wear, I would still get smudges and bumps in my polish. I would sometimes even wake up in the morning with marks in my polish! Once this finally did dry, it would bubble up like crazy, no matter what polish I wore. Get the Essie Good To Go topcoat instead.

              I won't say I had no chips at all, but the color polish underneath held up much better with the top coat than it does without. Still looks pretty good one week later.
