This didn't work for me at all. I just kept getting bubbles to each and every one of the manicures that I did and used this on top. Won't be buying this again!
This leaves a really nice shine and makes my nails feel stronger. Very fast drying, but doesn't last very long. Peels after a couple of days.
This is a pretty good top coat but I wouldn't buy it again because I think the sally hansen insta-dry (in the red bottle) is better. I picked this up because I was intrigued by it being a strengthener but as I said I prefer the insta-dry.
I bought this because the store was out of Sally Hansen Insta-dri (red bottle). I liked it more than most but not more than the Insta-Dri and it was more $$
This works, and that's all it does. It's not great, it doesn't suck, it just pretty much fulfills the absolute minimum to live up to the product claims. It dries a manicure fairly quickly (provided you follow the instructions and wait a couple of minutes for the polish to dry before adding this top coat), it doesn't cause shrinkage or bubbling that I've seen, and it provides generally adequate protection from chipping (how long I can't say; I rarely go more than five days with the same manicure because I get bored and remove it).
Things I do not like about this top coat include the brush, which is scrawny and makes getting the polish on in three strokes very difficult (and I don't have particularly wide nail beds, other than my thumbs), and the bottle is completely opaque, so you have no idea how much polish might be left. Why does Sally Hansen do this? I've never been able to work it out (they've done it with other polishes, too, most notably the original "Chrome" line).
Basically, I grabbed this on a discount because I wanted to compare it to my favourite quick-drying top coat, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, and I'm not too terribly disappointed or anything, but I won't be buying it again, even if I find it on sale. Sally Hansen can still have my money, just not for this product. It's okay, and has really stupid packaging, and that's about the best that can be said for it.
First time using it today, but I am impressed!! Nails look very shiny and dried very quickly! I also didn't do the best paint job, but this top coat smoothed everything out and made my mani look very nice. Love it without even knowing how long it'll make my paint last.
This top coat is AWESOME! I work in an office, so I type all day long. I don't typcially paint my finger nails because they chip so quickly, but not with this stuff! Today I unloaded 4 boxes of copy paper reems and there is not even a scratch on my nails!
I love this product it glides on great not bubbly and stringy. This really does dry fast if you wait between coats and not apply to thick. The only thing i don't like is the bottle is black and you can't see when to buy more but i will purchase again <3 continued >>
This is the fastest drying top coat I have ever worked with. Of course, I have never tried Seche-Vite, because I can't seem to find it in my province. So, I have to say this top coat impressed me real hard. The shine it porvides is amazing, and the best is that it really dries fast. Finally, the waiting time is reduced by lots! The bottle is black and opaque, but that doesn't bother me. The only thing I don't really like is the brush, it is far to slim and long for me.
I'm frustrated with myself for taking this long to try a fast-dry top coat! It's the first one I've tried and it makes all the difference and I'm not waiting hours for my nail colour to dry... This is now a must have in my manicure routine.
