This is about $5 on Amazon so I decided to give it a shot. Well, here's what it does:
You put it on and you love it because it's so shiny and makes your nails look fake- in a good way!
But within an hour you'll start to see tiny bubbles. And they get bigger and more will surface.
It takes quite long to dry but I'm totally fine with that. For a couple hours, I won't do much with my hands so I can't really comment on smudging.
The worst thing that happens is on the day after. You'll see chips and scratches and your manicure will start falling off on the third- if not second- day!
So this top coat is terrible and I plan on trying the Seche Vite one and maybe the Deborah Lippmann one too.
And yes, I did wear a base coat and waited a long time to let each of the three layers of OPI's Samoan Sand to dry before applying this top coat.
However, I must say that this does not smudge my nail art. But that must be due to the fact that I barely touch my nails with the brush when applying it. And I apply a medium-ish layer of top coat. I've used it countless times and it's always the same- bubbles, scratches and chips.
Bottom line is, I really, really dislike this topcoat and would not recommend it to anyone. I'd go as far as to say that you're better off not wearing top coat at all if this is the one you're planing to wear.

Every time I do a manicure and use this topcoat, the polish chips within a day. Not only that, but I get a noticeable shrinkage along my cuticles and a weird crackling across my nails.

Bottom line: skip this topcoat.

DON'T GET THIS TOP COAT!!!!!!! EVER! It doesn't work and it chips your polish instead of sealing it. This product doesn't worth the $$. Hate it and never getting it again. I used it twice and it didn't give out any effects at all. I'm using it as a base now (still got loads to waste). ://

This stuff is awful! I am prone to chipped polish immediately with this product. It should be called Get Chip. This is ridiculous. Their Mega Shine top coat is much better.

Chipped badly within less than 12 hours. Huge chips started forming from the center of my nails. I'm glad this was a gift and not a purchase. Terrible product.

Went right into the trash. Made my nail polish dry out and crack, and chipped by the second day. Spent the extra on the Salon Manicure top coat, which I should have done from the start.

This is just ridiculous. One hour after painting, my nails are chipped and cracked. Looks 2-3 days old. No chip? Yeah right. Worst thing ever. I prefer Sally Hansen's Double Duty - at least gives you a few good days. Do not waste your money.

I bought this without checking reviews first, used it the same day, enjoyed the shine and fact that it did dry quickly, but hours later noticed the weird cracks and "shattered" effect. I checked reviews here and sure enough, same thing seems to happen to everyone!

Sucky but I'm glad I'm not having a unique bad experience with this stuff! I want to return it, it is horrible!

I wanted to love this. I mean, Pinterest told me I would. All I had to do was sandwich it with my nail color of choice and Sally Hansen Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel. Tried the whole Pinterest tip and the finished product was great. The problems occurred after the top coat had time to completely and truly dry. Like others mentioned the top coat starts to shatter and chips, giving your nails that "days old" nails look. NOT pretty. I even tried the top coat by itself on multiple nail colors with identical outcomes. Hard As Wraps Powerful Acrylic Gel works better on its own. Don't waste your money...look elsewhere, and when you find a good top coat do share with me. :D
