This is my Holy Grail nail product! I use it as a base coat after I have buffed my nails. Then I add two coats of nail color and then two coats of 3 way glaze on top. I can get my polish to last for at least five days. This product leaves my nails feeling strong and looking very shiny! I have gone through 3 bottles and will continue to repurchase.
this is perfect as a base coat because it protects my nails, I noticed difference since I've been using it, the strengthener in it works very well too, the top coat is very shiny but according to me it does not protect the nail polish.
This is my first ever Essie purchase. I got on sale at shoppers drugmart for $7.99 so thought I'd give it a try.
I use as base coat then I polish my nails two coats with colour then I put this on again then seche vite. The colour definitely stays on a day or so longer then other ones I've tried. But it's not a week or anything. However it really does a great job strengthing my nails. They are like glass. Normally my nails bend still reguardless of top coat. Not this one!
So for that alone I will repurchase.
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.
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.
