              Completely uselss product. A sales associate assisted me in picking this out, because I asked for help finding a good top coat. At $10 per bottle, I expected better. It was such a waste. I returned it to Ulta, for a refund.

              My favorite top coat

              This is my favorite top coat. It makes your nail polish last for a long time. It is not fast drying though, so keep that in mind. Sometimes I use this and then top it with Good To Go.

                    I love the colors Essie offers! Great for spring and fall. It last for at least 4 days without chipping. I just wish it wouldn't clump up after a few weeks of non use.

                      This was by far the worst gift I've ever received. I truly hope the person who gave it to me never sees this review. It's a horrible investment if you are looking for a good top coat. This was a runny mess, took forever to dry, didn't shine, AND IT CHIPPED LIKE CRAZY BY DAY 2!! For $1 less, get Posh. It lasts 5 days and nice, thick shine like salon.

                      Using this top coat on any nail polish results in smearing, chips and cracks. I had never seen nail polish crack (without using that crackle top coat) prior to this. Very disappointing and now having only used 1/3 the bottle is this gross grey hazy color from picking up all my other polish colors... it also takes forever to dry, and two days later still gets imprints if I hit something hard.

                            This top coat does not give your nails any shine and doesn't dry quickly enough. Makes my polish streak, even if I wait for it to dry before applying the topcoat. Essie's good-to-go topcoat is much better.

                                I use this right after a manicure to keep the polish longer.

                                  I had high hopes for this polish but it fell short. It takes a long, long time to dry. I know it isn't fast drying, but it's slower to dry than any polish I have used. I hoped that maybe I hadn't let everything else dry enough before putting it on, but putting it on a totally dry polish had the same effect. The finish also isn't what I was hoping for. I was hoping for a nice glossy finish but it's somewhere between glossy and matte. Not quite what I was going for. It did hold up well and lasted several days before chips started happening ( I work retail, chips usually happen quickly. ) But that's really the only good thing about this polish. I'll be going back to my regular top coat.
