Most Helpful Positive Review A nurse's best friend
I am a nurse in a busy hospital. I use hand sanitizer/wash my hands over a hundred times per shift (I've counted) and this is the only top coat out there that will take that sort of beating for almost two weeks and actually keep the color on my nails without chipping. I use it with Orly's rubberized base coat. Sure, there's some wearing around the nail tips after a week or two, but it's only noticeable if you look closely and frankly, I couldn't care less about a little bit of wear because of the general longevity of this top coat. My hands dry out and crack before this polish does. Nurses can finally have great nails, y'all!
Most Helpful Critical Review Dries very fast, doesn't last long
I have been using this top coat for about six months. It is probably the best fast drying top coat out there - within 10 minutes, my nails are dry to the touch, and after 30 minutes, I can comfortably go about my day.
When I first started using this top coat, it was nearly perfect. Sometimes it would leave lines or globs of the top coat (since the formula is thick), but I was able to overlook it because it wasn't that bad. But over time, it became increasingly more difficult to use. The formula seems to have thickened to the point where it's become impossible to have a smooth application. Now when I apply the top coat, it drags and leaves an extremely streaky finish, and after a few minutes my polish will shrink. I've found that the only solution is to simply replace it once it gets goopy and ruins your nail polish.
Overall, this top coat does its job amazingly, but it quickly becomes frustrating to use. It's probably only good to use for about 2-3 months. I don't want to have to replace it every couple of months, especially when it's nowhere near finished.

...SECHE VITE WOULD BE ONE OF THEM! I've been using this stuff for 15+ years and it's beyond incredible. I highly recommend this to anyone who does their own nails. Yes, it gets gooey towards the end of the bottle, but just stock up and always have a new bottle on hand!
Comes highly recommended

Have used by itself as "clear polish" or top coat over my favorite polish.
Blallyvally3 from Oswego, Illinois
Love this. When it becomes time consuming to do your nails, just know you won't be disappointed with drying time! With 3 kids, this helps so much and use it often. This is the second bottle I've purchased and will continue to.
My Holy Grail top coat!
flyingha from TN
This top coat cut my mani time in half! It's best applied over wet/tacky polish and dries within seconds (though I do allow time to cure).
Holy grail of regular nail polish!
Trish from Huntington Beach, Ca
I haven't had regular nail polish on my nails in 10 plus years. Since quarantine I've been doing my own gel Mani's but hate removing it myself. Decided to use reg again & used orly as the base coat, nailtopia color & this as the top coat. Literally dried in 3 mins! I folded my laundry from the dryer 10 mins after & no smudges or marks. Holy amazing!! Definitely recommend.
Lizlaz from Ontario, OH
Wow, I'm absolutely floored by this top coat. I've had my nail polish on for 6 days and it looks great. Small areas of the nail polish has peeled, but I'd say 90-95% of the polish is still in place! Something I noticed with this nail polish is that the nail polish doesn't chip, instead it kinda peels off. I highly recommend this!
The absolute best topcoat
Alexis from Indiana
Dries incredibly quickly, looks so glossy, and lasts forever. Only topcoat I'll use
How am I just finding this?!
Traci from Ohio
This stuff is AMAZING! It dries and sets nail polish in just minutes. Has a nice gloss to it. No more having to be careful of what I do for hours after painting my nails.

I love this top coat
Sams Gram from Orem Utah
this is the best top coat I have found. It dries fast and wears well. It always gives my nails a nice shine.
This is an absolute staple for doing my nails.
Emily from Alabama
My sister in law turned me on to this and doing my nails will never be the same. I used to never do my nails because I was incredibly frustrated by the dry time... I would do my nails and 5 hours later take a nap and they would somehow have impressions on them. This makes nails 90% dry in legit minutes making it possible to continue about your day without fear. I don't know that it has any part in protecting against chipping, but I have been able to make longer without chips (could be polish quality though).
Alicia from Alabama
This is the best topcoat I've ever used! It dries super quick, and my polish lasted almost 2 weeks!
Best I've ever used!!
Ally from Kent
I can't say enough good things about this. Prevents chipping and dries super fast. Love this!
Simply the Best
Twinkie from Pennsylvania
Always come back to use this top coat after every mani. It is so fast that by the time I finish the last nail the first one is dry to the touch. Nice brush too.

Devi from St. Petersburg, FL
I love love love this top coat! I tend to do my nails before I go to bed and always wake up with lines and creases all over my fresh mani :( But after I purchased this top coat that's just not a problem anymore! My mani stays smooth all week and I just can't stop staring at my nails. lol 10/10!
gabs from davenport, FL
I have been doing nail art for about 6 years. I have used A LOT of different brands of top coats yet this one is the worst by far. My manis last up to 2 weeks but with this top coat they chip and peel withing like 3 days of doing my nails. This had never happened to me and I have used the top coat with different brands and it ALWAYS peels. I wish I could give it 0 stars
I only buy this dry fast top coat
Sabrina from Long Island, NY
This is my favorite dry fast top coat. I feel this brand works the best.
Dries so fast & shiny!!
Kath from FL
Love it! I normally do my nails before bed & I can never stay up late enough to wait them dry to the point where they wont get like mushy on top. But when I use this stuff I have no issue! Looks great the next day and is so shiny! Highly recommend!
I would buy this again
Gina from Houston
I love this top coat! I think it definitely helps my nails dry quicker. It does have a strong smell to it. I would definitely buy this again.
Salon nails at home
Kaeley from Seattle, Washington
If you always bump your nails while drying this is for you it cures in seconds for salon looking nails at home! I've used this product for a long time and have tried others but this is my go to everytime!
Doesn't Smear Polish. Long Lasting
Furikake from WA
The smell is on the stronger side, but doesn't linger. Doesn't smear polish together while making simple nail art (Unlike the OPI top coat). Edge of polish doesn't chip for more than one week.
A New Staple!
Chris from Webster, NY
I polish my nails frequently, "post acrylics". I found this product at ULTA, and I soon knew that it would be a staple in my nail recovery routine. It dries my polish so quickly, and it gives a shiny boost to my color. Within 10 minutes, I can go about my routine without worrying about smudges. Yes, the smell is a bit strong, but it is in no way a deterrent for me. I absolutely LOVE this product!
