                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.

                          If I do a quick coat every morning, my standard manicure can last up to 10 days looking flawless.

                              I bought this top coat mainly because it's an Essie product, and I prefer Essie polish to most other brands (after trying many others). It was also purported to be even better as a top coat, well, because, hey look, it's not supposed to chip. Well, after applying an Essie base coat (which I've used for years, it's their fill the gap line), then applying Essie polish, finally ending with the top coat, I noticed my nails starting to chip after just 3 days. By four days I couldn't stand looking at them, then they all chipped. I don't think it was user error, then I removed it all.

                                  I had been using OPIs quick dry topcoat and eventually that started to clump. I tried this and was pleased when it didn't do that. However, after letting it dry there was a build up of bubbles all over my nails. I tried many different techniques but no matter what the bubbles appeared.
