I've never really found my HG topcoat. I have tried drugstore and salon brands (specifically Revlon, Essie and OPI) and was neither disappointed or impressed. I was using my Essie 'Good to Go' top coat and liked the shine, but it wasn't giving my nails good chip-resistance. I had to get some acetone from Sally's and saw this and decided to buy it on a whim without ever trying any other Orly products. The directions on the bottle just say to apply and don't give specifics of wet or dry. With my other topcoats I always wait a minute or two and then go in with the topcoat, so it's not super wet but not dry. I decided to do an accent nail and after I went over the accent nail it made the color transfer to my other nail! I've never had that happen before. So I decided to start over and wait until the polish dried. After I did that, I had the experience of many others with the polish coming off in sheets. So, for my next attempt I went back to applying it over slightly wet nail polish and just did one color so I had no transfer and a few hours later I had chipped my polish...This one is going in the garbage!
easy to apply at the beginning
Get so goopy it looks like a glue
It's good, but I wouldn't buy it again because Seche Vite is better.
Chips immediately. I tried everything: applying right away, applying while still tacky, applying after it dried. It chips on day one no matter what I do. To paraphrase the Comic Book Guy: "Worst. Topcoat. Ever."
I'm not really sure why this is called 'Won't Chip' because CHIP is exactly what it does. Barielle's Manicure Extender performs better than this! If I ever find it at Marshall's again I'm buying their entire quantity. Anyway, I like the Orly bottle and the brush, so I will use this up and keep it for my homemade nail treatments, but I will not buy this product again.
i "borrowed" this one from my mom. it is FANTASTIC!!! when combined with fingerpaints nail polish (i have only tried black so far), it dries in about 45 seconds. totally rock hard. no fan either. now when i use it with sally hansen maximum growth nourishing nail color, i am stuck with "damp" nails. i did my nails at 10:30am. i have had to touch up and redo, and it is 4pm now. oh i have had to tough up and redo them 4 times already. but it stays in place. it doesnt clump, it is NOT gooey. and it gives my current red nails a fantastic shine.
it also gives my black nails a fantastic shine too
Wonīt chip, but it will peel in big chunks off your nails, taking tour nail polish with it.
My manicure lasted longer when I didnīt use this. Didnīt ralized it was Wonīt Chipīs fault until I read that a lot of people had the same problem only when using this.
My nails last less than a day with Wonīt Chip, it does the opposite of what is supposed to. Donīt waste your money on this, youīre better off with cheaper regular top coat.
This is a very 'meh' product. I got a few days wear out of it before it started chipping, but there are about 100 better products out there that dry faster. I'll use up the bottle but I won't bother buying another one.
This product has been inconsistent from bottle to bottle. First bottle, I loved - hard, glassy top coat and my manicure lasted for days beyond other top coats. Second bottle got awfully goopy, and nail polish came off in sheets. I thought it might have been a bad batch, but third bottle is now beginning to show signs of that goopiness. Really disappointed because I thought I'd found the top coat of my dreams.
I was surprised to see what bad ratings this product has. I love it!, I think I have gone through 4 bottles now. With regards to the problem everyone had been having with it cracking and coming off in sheets, it is probably sure to the thickness that its applied. If you apply to many coats of the product, the product itself will break because it makes your polish super hard, thus it cracks when you bend your nails.... But if you apply two light coats it shouldn't be a, problem.
