This is my favorite top coat it dries fast and nails don't chip for over 7 days.. I use this on my natural nails Orly Bonder 2 coats polish and out the door top coat. I can get at least 10 days out of my polish. :))
Best top coat out there. I've tried most of them and I keep on coming back to Out the door. So happy that I discovered CVS sells this! I'm not a fan of Sally's so making a special trip there was a pain. Out the door gives you a salon quality manicure. Glossy and it dries in about 10 minutes. Inexpensive and I love how this doesn't goop up half way through the bottle. This is the best!
While I haven't had too much experience with top coats, I will say this is my favorite. I do nail art. Using a top coat that doesn't make my polish peel off in 3 days is quite important! Seche Vite is a definite culprit of that >:( Anywho, I have semi-natural nails, meaning that I put an acrylic overlay over my real nails to keep them from bending. They still have quite a bit of bend to them, however. I used this top coat before a 3-day music festival. So through packing, setting up my tent, and getting real crazy, my manicure lasted ALL weekend. And then, my tie-dye nails lasted well into the work week AND even into the next weekend! I did my nails on a Thursday night and it is now Sunday of the next weekend and they still only have minimal chipping at the bottom. Only one nail got bad at the tip. To my dismay, the rest of the design still didn't peel off that nail. Wild. Also, I wear gloves at work and am constantly washing my hands. I am flabbergasted at the longevity this has given my nail art. Will give 5 lippies upon using this for a longer amount of time.
Good top coat so far. I've always used drugstore top coats and when getting out of the shower I notice it's always chipped, which sucks! Hopefully this one won't do that I purchased it at Sally's for 4.99 so not to bad, but i heard over time it thickens to where you cant use it anymore. I hope that isn't the case
This use to be my favorite top coat but i have found that i like thinner top coats better for lasting manicures. It does dry really fast but it gets thick pretty quick. I will be sticking with Essie good to go. I have found it is much thinner and last longer. doesn't dry as quickly but worth the little extra dry time.
I am in total love with this polish. I do my nails several times a week and tend to find myself doing them in the mornings before dashing out the door for work and I never have a problem. I put two coats of whatever polish I'm using, wait about 30 seconds to a minute, apply Out the Door and I'm literally....out the door...after about 2 minutes, Out the Door is totally dry to the touch and not a problem. I have never noticed and chipping FROM this product. I do get chips, but it's mainly because I type a lot. I seal my edges with this so that might help the process. I have repurchased several bottles of this stuff and will continue to do so. :)
Don't waste your money! Out the door made my nails chip faster than they would without top coat. By the next morning, large portions of my nail polish were already disappearing. Within 3 days, all the nail polish was almost gone. I was so disappointed with this because I saw so many good reviews here on MUA and on YouTube. I thought this would be significantly better than the OPI top coat (which is just terrible), but they're about the same. Not only did it take forever to dry, but it also did absolutely nothing to make my nail polish last. I would seriously be better off just not wearing any top coat. I'm going try Seche Vite. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.
First of all let me start with saying I take manicures seriously. I am known for my nails and nail art and I am always changing polishes and manicures and so I go through a lot of polish and LOTS of top coat. Now saying that, I know polish, and I love this top coat! I have used up nearly the entire bottle and this is easily comparable to Seche Vite and Poshe fast dry toppers. This is much easier to work with than the Seche Vite in that there is no learning curve, it does not have that horrible outgassing that clears a room when you use it, it is big 3 free, and it doesn't thicken halfway though the bottle. I can use this over wet polish (let it sit 1 minute first then apply this fast dry) and it dries to the touch within a minute. I have also used this over dry but still "tacky feeling if the nails touch" polish too. This glides on smoothly and does not pick up the polish beneath leaving color on my brush, and it seems to self level and dries to an even glossy finish giving my nails a professionally manicured look. This has been around for years and years and I just now got around to finally trying it. I was so sold on the wonders of Seche Vite that I didn't even think to try another top coat but as often as I use a top coat I need one that is big 3 free. It does seem to be big 3 free as well! I found this at Sally's Beauty Supply for $5.
Great to have for your nail looks...either at home or take it to the salon with you to have your nail tech apply at the end of your mani/pedi. A very good friend recommended this to me about 3 years ago and I've been hooked ever since I purchased it from CVS. It dries quickly, lasts long, and gives your nails brilliant shine. It was a bit difficult to find which is the only con I can point out at this juncture. I thought I'd be able to run into any Target, WalMart, Rite Aid, etc to get it but only found it in CVS. I think I actually went to a few different CVS stores before I found it. It's was about $4 or so I believe...which is good because if its quality and hoe long it lasts. I've been using the same bottle for about three years. It's quality hasn't changed since the first use. Some polishes become very thick to the point where they can no longer be used after years of having it, or they become thin and runny and don't have the same "coating" effect necessay to provide a lasting and effective top coat. OTD does not do either...GO GET IT.
This is a fantastic product. I have been using this for over 10 years, and have purchased multiple large bottles of this. There is no problem with shrinking, and it leaves a glossy finish. The price is good for the large amount you get.
