I have never being fan of Essie nail polishes, I love the color selection but the formula always chips on me the next day. So when I got this as a preset from my friend, I was really skeptical and never used it.
However a couple of weeks ago I found myself at my parents home and without a top coat and there it was the forgotten Essie bottle. I decided to give it a try and I was amazed.
The formula is really watery and as people say it takes forever to dry, so if you are not a patient person, this is not for you. However if you don't mind the wait, this is a great top coat. My manicure used to last me a week with my precious topcoat, with this it last me up to 2 1/2 weeks without chipping or with minor chipping.
I love this top coat but I just wish it could dry faster.
I buy a ton of Essie nail polish and I love it! So when I saw this top coat I had to have it. I just used it and it's AWFUL! I now have to do my nails over again because it smudged my polish! It also transferred polish all over my Uggs. So my nails and my boots are ruined!!! Glad I kept the package because I'm returning this! I let my nails dry for TWO HOURS before I even touched anything.
I love the wide brush! After 4 days, my nails are still shiny and chip free.
I love Essie products and was very surprised with this top coat. It never dries. Reading the reviews I realize this is a common problem.
I'm disappointed with this product. On the fourth day of my mani, Chips Away.
On my toes...Still going Strong.
This was OK. It went on easily and dried relatively quick. It made my manicure look polished and sharp. However it doesn't really live up to its name. My manicure chipped before the week was out each time I used it. I prefer to get a week out of my Manis.
Essie top coats typically don't work for me. My nails chipped so bad with this one. I'd paint my nails with Essie polish, no base coat and have chips in 1-2 days. The magic formula I've learned is the Orly top coat (it has a rubber purple cap and the liquid looks yellowish) and the Essie GEL COUTURE top coat in the all white bottle!!' My regular Essie polishes last really well with that combo. The Expressies chip faster tho. But try that combo out!
