This is a really fantastic top coat. Usually, I paint my nails and the polish chips the very next day (and no amount of top coat helps). However, I painted my nails on Sunday and applied two coats of Essie 3-Way Glaze. It is now Friday and my color has remained shiny and completely chip-free! This is almost unheard of for me! I am very impressed and will definitely be buying this again.
I really liked this product! really shiny as a top coat and sure does extend the wear of my polish. my nails are thin/weak, short/medium length that are prone to of course chipping and peeling; that being said, without this top/base coat my polish lasts to my next shower (the next day) which is not ideal because its all chipped and well for lack of a better term, ugly! however, with this top/base coat my polish lasts at least 3 days which does say something about this product.
also looks great by itself
i will re-buy :)
This was great, until I got to about half-way on the bottle. Then, somehow, it started to get extremely gloopy all the time. I would thin it, and it would work fine, but then next time I went to use it, it would be gloopy again! So annoying! It is very hard to thin out, I use like 10 drops of thinner each time (usually only have to use 2) and it is still too thick. Something must be wrong with it.
I gave it a 2 because it worked well for the first half of the bottle
Off to find something better...
This product is amazing! Probably the best base & top coat clear polish I have ever used. Adds a lot of strength and durability to my nails and definitely extends the wear of any polish I use. Definitely will be a repurchase for me and I have recommended it to many friends and family who love it too. continued >>
I needed an all-in-one product, because I was going away for a few months, and needed to slim down my baggage, so I thougt I'd give this a go. I didn't have to high expectations, even though the reviews on here were good, I was still kind of reluctant to use an all in one product. (Kinda like using toothpaste as moisturizer... LOL)
Onto the review...
I really really like this! It works as well as any other top/basecoat I've used,
without of course the fast-drying aspect from Good-To-Go, but doesn't take forever to dry as I was afraid it would. But the part that absolutely sold me is that it has improved the condition of my nails! My nails have never been this good, and I use remover w/ acetone (which I didn't do before). My nails are strong enough that I don't have to wear polish (I do anyway, but they've never looked OK w/o before)
When I get home I'll continue to use this as basecoat, but I will go back to Good-To-Go as a topcoat, not because this doesn't perform well, just because the other one is faster. I highly recomnd this product!
This is my HG base+top coat. You can still go about your day and do the dishes, and it really will not chip. Granted, you must not scrub at your nails or anything like that. I just feel that as a top coat, it is so thick and protective looking/feeling. And I do find that if you put a layer of this before you start applying your colored nail polish, it does prevent your nails from turning yellow~
This glaze is a must have for me - I use it as a base and top coat all of the time. I had never had polish stay on my nails for over a week with no chipping before I started using it. It takes a bit longer to dry than other top coats, but if you can give it that time to set effectively (20 minutes or so without a fan/UV) you should be able to type with reckless abandon.
This does a good job at making your nails really shiny, which I like. However, I notice that when I use it, my nail polish doesn't last as long as if I had never used a topcoat,so it is time to try something else.
This is a great money saving product! It does the job of three and it does so wonderfully! It made an even canvas on my gel destroyed nails, so my nail polish applied better! The topcoat corrects streakiness and minor mistakes. I'm not really feeling the hardeners however.
This stuff don't make your polish last longer than other topcoats, however it is better than having none. Overall I'm really satisfied especially since it's a multifunction product.
I think this is a very underrated product. I love using this as a base coat and a top coat. I get great wear out of polishes when I use this as a base coat. I wish it was a little bit more shiny for a top coat but its still my HG base coat. I have and will repurchase this.
