      Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

      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.

                          I saw this advertised on TV to keep a manicure looking great longer. So, I tried it. I am now sporting a week old manicure (regular, not gel) and it looks 2 days old. I used the product right over the new manicure and have applied it once since. In the future, I will apply No Chips every other day. Can't wait to see how long this manicure lasts! Great value to prolong a professional manicure.

                                  As with other reviewers, I found that this top coat has consistently bubbled as it 'dries.' It also takes well over an hour to fully dry, which means that smudges and scuffs are inevitable if you need to use your hands for basically anything.
