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!
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.
Using this for many years!
Fast drying and beautiful shiny finish. I wouldn't buy any other product for top coat.
Used it for years.
The ONLY topcoat I will use.
I don't know what kind of magic is in this bottle, but whatever it is I'm to the point where I literally cannot paint my nails without it. You can apply this to even still-tacky polish and it will be dry enough to continue on with your day within minutes, it's seriously amazing. The number of manicures this has single-handedly saved and the amount of time this topcoat has saved me is honestly insane. The only (slight) gripe I have with this is how fast the bottle dries up and gets too thick to use, but that's a small downside I'm more than willing to accept when a product is as good as this.
The best. Except the bottom of the bottle.
The bottom gets goopy and I can't ever use a full tube. But the best top coat!
Used to love it
Used to be my go to but now find it too thick. It's great when you first use it but it begins to get very thick almost like rubber cement after a few uses. It also shrinks your polish. Also instead of chipping the whole polish will come off like a sticker. I prefer other brands now over this.
Thick and peels
This top coat is so thick. It's almost like it's already old. My manicure clipped the next day and by day 5 this literally peeled off my nails leaving the color behind. I don't see how this gets so much hype
