        Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

        Please do not buy this. It doesn't dry completely even after waiting for it to dry for hours. It is the worst top coat I have ever used. I am completely baffled why it is being sold. I woke up the next morning with sheet marks on my nails even though I went to bed at least 5 hours after I put this on. I even wrote Ulta to tell them they need to stop selling this. I took it back for a refund.

          Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

          I bought this because my local Ulta was sold out of the Good To Go top coat. The drying time was ridiculous. It took at least 24 full hours for it to completely dry. Once it was dry, I started noticing chips on several of my nails. I returned it and will never give it a second chance. Horrible product.

          Essie makes a lot of nail polishes, top coats, etc. that are just okay. They're better than drugstore brands, but not as great as brands like OPI, Butter, etc.

          If you love their colors I suggest pairing them with a better base coat (ORLY Bonder is my favorite! It works amazingly!) and an intense top coat and it'll do as well as any other brand.

          With their top coats, base coats, etc. I would spend the extra few dollars on OPI and ORLY. You get way better results and more product.

          An overpriced top coat

          I used this along with an Essie polish and was not impressed with the outcome. My polish chipped the next day.

                The top coat took forever to dry and was not worth the wait. My nail polish chipped just as quickly as the generic brand I usually buy.

                Comments about Essie No Chips Ahead Top Coat:

                I really like this product. It has worked very well at preventing chips for up to about a week on average. I have used it overy various brands of polish and it never takes more than one coat. I would have rated this item with 5 stars, but it does take a bit longer to dry than I feel like it should.

                    The topcoat worked really well, it even made my cheaper polishes last longer!

                            I combined this with an Essie rubberized base coat, and my nail polish stays put for about 5-6 days. It just starts to chip at about day 5 and a half. Glides on smoothly. Doesn't dry particularly fast, but I'm okay with that given how long it makes my nails last.
