Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
When I found this product I was really impressed. I will and only use this as my top coat to matter what nail polish I use. I just love the way my nails look. I am always getting complimented. I am on my 6th bottle. Obsessed!!!
Product is useful when you need a quick nail job and out the door... NOT for a weekly mani or anything you need to last long. Every time I use this, I chip within the day. Never lasts more than 2-3 days, and that's if I don't mind chipping.
However... it does dry your nails fast, so if you need to do your nails and run out the door for a solo event, this will be useful. Just be prepared to re-do them soon.

I really like how this top coat helps your polish dry quickly and shine, but today is the second day in a row I have painted my nails only to find chips hours later. I applied a base coat- let it dry, one coat- let it dry, second coat- let it dry, then top coat. Same results different polish colors so I can't even blame the lacquer. I feel like the polish would have lasted longer without this product.

I have now used this product twice with two lighter blush colors and each time by the second day, the tips of my nails seems to be taking on an orange tint. I'm really confused what is causing this. The first time, I had washed dishes with tomato sauce so even though that didn't make sense, I assumed maybe the sauce stained them. The second time, they haven't been exposed to anything that could have caused this. it started within 24 hours. I think I'm going to have to try a new top coat. Bummer!

I just bought and I'm amazed by how incredible this top coat is. Shines like glass. Looks wet. I love this.

I love this top coat — it goes on very smoothly and dries quickly. I haven't had any issues with it chipping or smudging! BUT I will say that you need to make sure your color coats are COMPLETELY dry before you paint this on top. If not, my nails never seemed to dry and set properly. I like to add additional coats to my nails throughout the week to help them last, and this polish does the trick! 10/10 would recommend.

After so many years of always trying a different top coat - I finally found this gem! It dries quickly enough I'm not always smudging and it remains glossy for days!
Best top coat ever. Dries fast not less chance of smudging. Very glossy for days.

This product made me actually not dred painting my nails. I could throw a quick coat on and the fast drying clear coat and be out the door which is the best part for me!

Almost didn't purchase this when I saw reviews of chipping and peeling; however, I have inexperienced that. There have been one or two times where I did experience fast chipping or peeling, but I think that had to do with my polish color, as that was the only changing variable that led this to not work.

This product dries fast, but that's about it. I used it on top of Essie's base coat "Here to Stay", and the next day the top coat was peeling off of the base coat. Yes, it's that terrible. I also used it on top of Essie's gel colors instead of the gel top coat, and it was cracking in a day. This is only good for drying fast and if you need it for a last-minute event. After 1 day, it's going to start chipping, cracking, or peeling off.

So glad I bought this. The reason for the four stars is it does not have the new brush head which covers more nail surface. I love the new brushes and find that my nails look professionally done now. This definitely dries my nails faster and leaves a beautiful shine.
Klynn87 from Virgina
Great top coat for anything. My nails don't keep ANY polish on, but this makes them feel like they have gel and don't chip at all. It dries fast leaves a nice finish, and protects your polish. HIGHLY recommend!

I bring good to go with me to the salon when I get my pedicure, they always ask if I want disposable flip flops & I hand them this & say nope, just give me a couple top coats of this & I will put my sneakers back on. It blows their minds lol
Disappointing from Usa
Used an OPI polish and this on top. It peeled the next day!
josiecol from Pittsburgh, PA
Since doing my nails is a pretty recent obsession of mine, I've yet to invest in a UV/LED light. Without a top coat, I noticed my nail polish would quickly become dull and would show any smudges. After reading just a few reviews of this top coat, I decided to try it out and it did not disappoint! It completely dries in less than 5 minutes, and flawlessly self-evens to look smooth and shiny. If you're impatient like me and need a no-cure top coat, this is the one for you!
BoysMamma2 from New Haven CT
It does what it says...it dries fast. But it also chips super fast. My manicure was all chipped the next day. It applies nicely with the tapered brush though. Wouldn't buy it again. I was using OPI top and base coat with Essie color. So I thought using the same brand would help the color last and not chip. Disappointed.
Low-Maintenance Glamour from Anaheim, CA
I bought this top coat after having tried OPI's regular one, and having a lot of long wear designer nail colors that take at least an hour to dry, I wanted a nice addition to my manicures that wouldn't result in me walking around the house with crooked fingers and toes praying that I wouldn't bump into something. Yes, this truly does set nail color within about ten minutes. It's slightly thin, but goes on easily and leaves nails shiny, with a gel-like finish. The brush is thin and delicately tapered, so it's easy to pull the top coat over your color. It is also pretty forgiving, spreading easily without too much shrinkage. It fuses with your polish, filling in imperfections to give the nail a nice, cushioned look and masking imperfections. However, as it's fast drying, it isn't the strongest top coat in the world. I noticed it does chip slightly faster than others I've tried. I still like it, but if you're the type of person who likes to get the maximum wear out of your manicure, just consider that you may need to reapply it every other day to extend your manicure. It's also easier to remove than OPI, which was a pain to take off even with acetone.

This is a really good top coat. They discontinued the one I used to use so I'm glad I found this. It dries shiny and quick and makes polish last days longer. I had tried the Orly one before finding Essie and the Orly one was terrible.
KatieD from Boston, MA
Love love love this product. I've tried many other top coats or quick drys and hands down Essie Good To Go is the best. Dries super quick, hardens my nails, doesn't chip and is long lasting! I can put this on 10 minutes before bed, when I wake up my nails are flawless. High recommend!!
rmb76 from Columbus, OH
This top coat was fast drying and seemed to work well over polish, but definitely not on bare nails when used as a clear coat. Just one day after applying to bare nails, the polish started lifting and peeling off in layers. Maybe this is meant to only go over polish?
Lydiamg from Sweden
If I make more than 1-2 strokes the top coat removes the nail polish. I have to make sure to get it even with one stroke or otherwise it messes up my nail polish. Really disappointed.
Top Coat sent from Heaven! from Atlanta, GA
I was looking for the fastest drying top coat. I look at OPI and Orly products and reviews kept saying use this item instead. I took it with a grain of salt until I kept repeatedly seeing it by different reviewers. I decided to take a chance and order this based on the referral reviews and I am so glad I did! I now actually do my nails. The biggest reason I didn't before was because they never dried fast enough and I would just give up and remove the polish (note: I am a little bit of a perfectionist and impatient, so any little blemish on any nails, I would automatically give up and remove all nail polish). BUT, this is a gamer changer! I use the Orly bonder base coat, any type of nail polish (2 coats) and then top it with Essie. It is amazing! Dries so fast! It is just one of those products that makes doing something that would usually not work out an easy task. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! Highly recommend! Thank you so much Essie for allowing me to enjoy doing my nails.

Way to expense and it doesn't stay on, very disappointed 😞

I will never buy this brand of top coat again. Ever since the change of formula, this product got a lot 'cheaper' in quality for the same price. When applied, it chips within a day! It removes all the day polish and peels in pieces. It even peels the nail polish that has glitter sparkles on it, that takes forever to remove with acetone. I decided to put it to the test and use Essie top coat on my left hand and sally hensen top coat on my right hand. Of course, the one on my left hand peeled within a day. Im 5 days in, and the polish to my right is still intact. Never wasting my money on this polish again.

I use all Essie products! This produces a beautiful shiny top coat!
