Eventhough this is my first nail polish drying oil, I've used drying topcoats. This is the fastest dying product I've ever used. With seche vite after a while the bottle starts to gunk up but this is amazing same quaility with every drop and insanely cheap. I had to pay like $15 for seche vite with shipping since they don't sell it in Turkey and I am paying $3 to $4 to essence. Still if you are not careful with it you can get finger prints on it. You need to cover all of your fingers. I haven't use it with matte finishing polishes I'll update this when I do.
I bought these because I've heard of more expensive drying drops but these were 2.99, & I've had good luck with the essence products I've tried. I like these. I used these after painting my nails right before bed (normally the worst idea ever) and I only had minor "sheet marks" on my nails when I woke up.. usually they're totally destroyed. While you obviously can't go around banging your nails on things (they will get dents in them), they certainly speed up the process. & you can't beat the price.
En un principio lo odie, porque era grasiento y no era realmente lo que esperaba, pero ahora aprendí a utilizar lo mínimo de cantidad, y esperar a que se seque, y realmente acelera el proceso! siempre me pinto las uñas en la noche, y eran un problema, por la espera, ahora con el, ya no lo tengo, excelente producto!
I love these drops. So cheap, and 100% effective. I use these over a basecoat, 2-3 coats of colour and a THICK coat of Sally Hansen Mega Shine topcoat, and I wait 10 minutes before washing my hands and going about my normal activities. By one hour later I am comfortably using my nails to peel off stickers, scratch things etc. - which I could otherwise never do with 5 coats of nail polish!
I have found a problem with 'tip retraction' that I think might be due to these drops, but it's very minor.
This product is so cheap that I basically douse my nails in in,2-4 drops per nail. I will definitely be repurchasing.
I have a love-hate relationship with this product. It really makes polishes dry faster but also makes my fingertips feel oily. Hmm. Still, I couldn't do without it and stock it whenever I go shopping.
Great product. People ard me always ask how I manage to find time to paint my nails. My secret is this express drops. :) just repurchased this yesterday.
Solid basic drops. It speeds up the drying the process - it takes 1 minute for surface and about 5 to 10 for deeper layers. Oily and a bit messy to apply, but otherwise good.
Especially with regard to the very low price, seems like a good product. It noticeably shortens drying time, in 60 secons polish seems much more dry than without these drops! With regard to INCIs, it's almost identical with Zoya fast drops, which are much more expensive!
It's a good product and does make your nail polish dry in 60 seconds, but only on the surface, so if you are layering 2 or 3 coats f nail polish, you have to be carefull with contac. There are better products, but this wins for the price, under $5 USD.
