I have a love/hate relationship with this top coat. It does dry very quickly to a very very glossy finish. It doesn't do a lot about the chipping, but ok, I can survive that, as I neverkeep a nail polish for more than 5 days.
However, it has one big downside: it's the 4th time I wear it and it's already almost turn to glue! Actually, it was only good the first time I applied it. It's thick and difficult to apply, looks really bad close to the cuticles and creates many tiny little bubbles on almost all my nails.
I would only buy it again because I haven't found anything better, but it really doesn't mean that this product is something very good.
This is one of my favourite quick drying top coats as it dries really fast, it doesn't cause bubbles or shrink the polish and also it doens't get goopy too easily. The only downside is that it is quite expensive here in Europe.
It gives a great shine but not so great on the chipping. I use this one on my toes.
dries really fast
doesn't get goopy
Price, in europe 12e
It does dry fast, but did nothing to prevent chipping. Think I'll save it for pedicures.
I love this product!! it's my holy gail!!! dry fast and very nice shinny finish, whatever color i color on after i top coat with this it always look amazing.
Essie's Good to Go fast drying top does exactly what it's marketed to do. It dries quickly and leaves a super shiny finish that made my husband swear my nails are still wet. I haven't experienced the "peeling off in sheets" effect.
How I apply it: I use my basecoat, my nail polish choice (2-3 coats), then one thick coat of Good to Go, wait 5-10 minutes, apply cuticle oil/balm/butter/lotion, another 5-ish minutes and I have a fabulous manicure guaranteed on my dominant hand for 4-5 days, probably longer on my non-dominant hand.
I'm a stay a stay-at-home mom with a 6 month old baby, I wash dishes, cook dinner and breakfast 5-7 times a week. I am not easy on my hands, and this is the top coat I will swear by.
I normally use SH's Insta-Dri but when this was sold out I thought to try this one. Well... Not impressed to be honest! It makes my polish come of in sheets! Doesn't last really well and the drying time is noticeably longer than Insta-Dri. All in all a disappointment.
Oh, and to the reviewer who claimed that quick drying topcoats are supposed to turn goopy in the bottle halfway through: That's just ridiculous! They should make the bottle smaller if that is the case.
BEST EVER! I'm a busy mom of a 6 mo old cutie pie, and work full-time in a corporate/office environment as a manager. Therefore, need to look my best always (not that anybody in any role should ever look like crap, but I digres...). Love this top coat because it really does dry fast. Like, 10-15 mins fast. Which is great because with a little one, I don't have time to sit and luxuriate in front of the TV waiting for polish to dry...I'm always on the go and with this top coat, I really am good to go! Even washed baby bottles by hand 15 mins later and not a smudge! Great stuff. Beware that it makes Zoya brand polish shrink up and look a hot-mess. That said, I'd venture to say this stuff only works with Essie colors. Def worth the price. Will never use Sally Hansen quick-dry stuff again (which is okay, but not nearly as good as this stuff).
I adore this top coat. For those of you complaining about it becoming thick after half the bottle-- that is expected for a quick dry top coat. Once oxygen gets in the bottle it causes the polish to become thicker as if it were "drying"... Anyways- It is SUPER shiny and does exactly as essie advertises- drys SO quickly! I have used it with essie polish, OPI, and Butter London and it works like a dream with all three. Would definitely repurchase!
