Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
I am beyond amazed with this top coat. It is super-fast drying and has a gel-look quality to it. I was pricing actual gel UV LED lamp and polishes to start doing gel at home. I wasn't excited about the removal process, so I was hesitant to get into it. I saw this top coat at Ulta and was intrigued! How the heck does a polish plump? I have no idea, but my nails look absolutely amazing! I have not touched up in 7 days. I do dishes, wash hair, you name it! I found my new top coat!
I tried the plumping topcoat and was very disappointed. It chipped the morning after I applied, and continued to chip daily. I didn't find that the topcoat was volumizing at all. I'm only rating it 2 stars because of the shine. Will not buy this again and I will stick to the OPI Infinite Shine Prostay Gloss 3 since that produces more durable results.

Truly plumping. Fast drying. Glossy. Protecting. Nothing compares. I buy this over and over and over and over and I don't even care that it gets a little gloopy and I can't use the whole bottle. It's that good.

This is one of my favorite products since '19! I've tried other brands that say the same and I ALWAYS come back to this one cause it does what it says!! Don't use the imitators use the OG,OPI plumping trust me you won't regret it.

I apply 2 coats of this on top of my lacquer and then a couple drops of Drip Dry. I love how it plumps my nails making it look gel like without having to get gel. 1 coat is not enough to notice a big difference so try 2.

The plumping Polish lives up to its name! It goes on smooth, dries fast, and lasts at least a week. I'm tough on my nails so it may last longer if you take better care of them. It has a gorgeous plumping effect that makes it look like you got a gel manicure!

This not only makes my manicure look like a pro did it, not just me, but also lasts and lasts.

I typically do not write reviews, however I had to write a review about this product. This product is great. It gives you the gel/ shellac look. This is the best polish ever. I will not do shellac/ gel again. I will go to my manicurasist and take this product with me. The way I use it is I use my opi strengthner as my base, then use the opi regular polish I use 3 coats, then I use my strengthner again then use the volumizing on top. I know it seems like a lot but it doesn't look thick at all and it dries quickly. My nails come out beautifully. My nails have not chipped at all either. It's been 3 days and no chip. I absolutely love this product. I recommend this product to anybody that loves to do their nails and likes their nails to shine.

Bought this last night and used it for the first time. My nails look like I used a gel polish instead of the regular nail lacquer. I highly recommend this product.

I use this in between SNS manicures which lengthens the life of my manicure

Very thick to apply, didn't seem to "plump" nails at all - save your money!!

I had been using the NailAid "like gel" top coat for the last few years, prior to that it was the OuttheDoor one. Got tired of the NailAid one, while very affordable the shine is no where near gel-like and the longevity was mediocre - about 4 days on the average. Felt it was time to try something new. Picked this one up and am quite pleased. I do get longer mani life - 5-6 days and the plumping effect is pretty nice. It is not exactly like a true gel volume or shine but pretty good for a non-gel product. Does dry pretty fast, it is very thick in consistency so initially I thought it would take forever to dry but surprisingly doesn't. I always keep a bottle of drying drops around but I am yet to use it with this product. Side note regarding the dry time - the very top layer dries fast, so if you lightly touch your nails against something or carefully put on a sweater for e.g. it won't budge. But the total layer of the product takes a little longer, so don't be fooled by that, i.e. if you push something against it will make a dent. Hope this makes sense. I have used it about 5 times already and have never had a smudge, and I am very impatient, always trying to do something obviously mani-hazardous without properly waiting. As I mentioned it's pretty thick so I feel it works best if you apply a really generous amount, i.e. pick up a lot on the brush when you apply. Otherwise it can get sort of tacky and not apply smoothly/evenly. Which in turn makes it a little messy, as you get some overflow on the cuticle, but I always use a thin, slanted eye liner brush to do clean ups. I guess this just adds up another 5 mins to the entire process. Overall very happy with the product and do recommend trying it.

It is not exactly gel look but better than the usual top coats with high shine

I have brittle, thin nails. I usually just wear a nail strengthener and it chips in 1 or 2 days. I started using this topcoat & I can now also use color and it lasts 4+ days plus my nails are getting stronger!!

This product provides great shine and the finish on my nail looks professionally done! For me, it's worth the price!

IT dried fast and it's very long lasting

I wouldn't say it's think enough to complete smooth the nail and give it that acrylic/ gel look. It's incredibly hard to describe to other people, it supposed to make your nails look polished and not like there's a nail filled with ridges but a perfectly rounded top smoothed by a good coat of polish.

Today is Day 2 with my manicure using this top coat, and it is still beautifully flawless. I received compliments all day yesterday from my girlfriends about how beautiful my manicure looked, and they thought my nails were done with gel polish! The dry time with top coat wasn't that long either! It definitely gives a plumping gel-like appeal. I used this with an OPI color, but an Orly base coat, and it still looked beautiful! I would definitely recommend this product!
