Rated 4.13 out of 5 stars
My nail polish stayed on 2 weeks
I think this is good product to minimize chipping and get longer ware out of your polish.....
But.............. and this is a BIG But....
It takes forever to dry -- I waited hours to let let it dry before I went to bed... and still woke up with sheet marks. Therefor the shine just doesn't last.

This thick top coat takes so long to dry, remaining tacky for hours after application. Then, forget about going to sleep. You'll wake up with sheet marks no matter when you polished your nails that day. The sheet marks dull the shine and that's that. I bought a Wet and Wild top coat for less than $2 that's better than this one.

I've run into the same issues both times purchased. It doesn't dry well. I do thin coats of all (base, color and top) and still... Forget about sleeping on it, even hours later. And within a quarter of the bottle down, bubbling starts each use.

It's shiny, dries very fast and doesn't shrink. Love the wide brush. I prefer a top coat that adds a gel-like finish to the nails, which this does not, hence the four stars. It's great for what it is, just not my 100% perfect top coat.

This does not dry even after hours of waiting. This may be more of a clear coat than a top coat because it does not dry down at all and leaves nails dented

Great quality. My nail technician loves using my OPI products!
Mac from USA
It is a great top coat. Dries fast and isn't tacky.

It brings a nice shine to my manicure, plus it helps keep the nail polish from chipping.

I do my own nails weekly and this top coat ruined my polish every time until I finally replaced it. I lightly buff my nails, use alcohol, and apply the thinnest of coats and this still bubbled even after hours was patient waiting. Horrible. I narrowed the issue to this top coat by process of elimination and discovered it simply didn't work and it's too pricey to under perform.

I applied one coat of nail polish and ended with one coat of the top coat. My polish lasted 3 days longer than usual without chipping at the tip. I must mention that I constant wash the dishes by hand several times during the day and yet the polish lasted longer with this top coat.

i normally really love OPI but this top coat was not easy to work with. i have bubbles in my manicure and it took hours to fully dry down and even now it feels tacky like i just applied it. i can deal with the long wait for it to fully dry and set my manicure but the bubbles really ruined it for me, thats my biggest pet peeve!
Molly from Maryland
Hard to use! It absorbs color from my nails every time I use it and sometimes pushes the polish around even when already dried. Not great, especially for the price

This topcoat is disgusting. It was thick and never dried. The thickness of it is so confusing.. how did they even making a top coat so thick? Gross.
Gisselle from Knoxville
While I did not experience the drying issues others have complained about (I used Essie drying drops and after an hour went to bed--no sheet marks) I've got chipping already after one day. No reason to spend this much money and time if it's going to do that.

this is by far the best top coat that I have ever used and I have tried almost every top coat offered at ulta. does it take a little longer to dry than most? maybe, if you slather it on way too much and have the attention span of a goldfish. all you need is a very thin coat, wait 15 minutes, and you're set for over a week of perfect nails. it DOES dry and once it does you will have smooth, shiny perfection atop your phalanges (and thumbs!). its the only top coat that actually works for me. it works beautifully if you give it time to work it's magic. TRUST ME. I'm a professional :)

I absolutely love how long my nail polish lasts when I use this top coat. However, I knocked off a star because the formula takes forever to dry. It takes hours to dry! Sometimes I will have air-dried my nails for several hours before going to sleep, and wake up with my polish slightly smudged and unsightly to look at. Because of how long the polish makes my manicure last, I ended up giving it 4 stars. The staying power is incredible, and worth the extra long wait.

I've tried with many brands and colors, this top coat destroys the nail polish underneath it and doesn't dry. It honestly doesn't even look shiny. Wouldn't recommend.
Brit from South bend, IN
I can't believe OPI would sell this. I love their polish, both regular and gel, but this top coat is ridiculous. Takes forever to dry, and does not leave your nails smooth and shiny. I'm honestly confused. I tried it twice and both times it was terrible!
Jenn from Lompoc
This top coat created almost a tacky feeling on my nails which I'm not a big fan of. But only on certain nails
Monica from Massachusetts
Does not dry even an hour later my nails where still sticky, definitely do not recommend. I tried the sally Hansen 60 second insta dry top coat and it dried in 1 minute and left my nails so glossy!!
Tammyw from San Diego CA
Two hours after application, I was able to scrub everything off with a wash cloth in the shower. So frustrating!
Laura from Buffalo
This is awful. I assumed this would be nice, without checking it out, because OPI is a good nail polish brand, but it's the worst. It is super slow drying - it took hours. It stayed sticky. When it finally dried, it was almost matte, with pitting and smudges. I was just sitting watching TV, and I applied to dry polish. I have to return this.
Itscyndo from Los Angeles,California
I have a hard time finding a top coat I like. This was pretty good. I didn't coat two fingers and in days I noticed the difference. On those two fingers it wasn't as shiny as the rest and the polish looked different too. I also experienced chipping on those fingers first. I didn't notice a difference in drying time either.
AEHEPLER from Pittsburgh
Horrible. I'm wondering if this is a bad batch, it took over 3 hours to dry down (I mean, it was STICKY for hours!!) I'm returning it!
Get the Essie top coat instead, the twisty bottle one.
Sheila from Pittsford NY
This top coat has a terrible smell and dies not leave nails shiny - very dull. Will be returning.
