I've found that Sally Hansen stuff peels right off. The base coats peel right off clean, dry nails (literally 20 minutes later I had big pieces popping off) or on painted nails my color and top coat would pop off.
Dries quickly and gives a smooth glassy finish to my nails. Lately I've been using NYC's top coat because it's very good and only 99 cents, but this is even better. This is about $5 at Target.
Wow, what a piece of crap. On the one hand, it does a great job at drying my nail polish...a few minutes and I was out the door. But on the other hand, not even 12 hours later, my polish starting peeling in huge chunks (which so many other reviewers have also complained of). Maybe I got what I deserve...how dare I really expect one product to simultaneously speed dry and make my polish last 10 days? Truth be told, I would have settled for 3 days, but 12 hours? I've come to this obvious conclusion: what good is a quick drying manicure if it is peeling off less than a day later? I was going to give this product 2 lippies for its cheap pricetag and amazing drying abilities, but since I had to chuck it for peeling the same friggin day, no can do. One sad, lone lippie it is.
When I need fast drying, this is the top coat I turn to. It's incredibly quick, gives a good shine, and unlike many other reviewers I do not have an issue with chipping, but I almost never do, no matter what the product is. My nails are natural and always have been; I don't know if that makes a difference. I hate that I can't see how much is left. The packaging would be a lot better if there were a clear strip on the side, as with detergents, to show how much is left.
this is real shiny, dries real quick, but still still chips my polish, but not as fast as other brands do.
It gives a shiny effect and dries quickly relative to other top coats. I didn't notice how quickly it dried until I used a different top coat again. The wearability isn't that great though. But then again, literally everything chips on my nails. Might rebuy, although it's more likely that I won't.
THIS IS THE WORST NAIL POLISH EVERRR...
yes, i loved how it dried super fast, and left my nails super shiny.. but in less than a day, the nail polish peeled right off (since it binds all the layers, it took all the nail polish right off). I used it 3 times to give it a chance and everytime it lasted no more than 12 hours without peeling.. the claims are false.. it does not extend your manicure for at least 8 days, it reduces the life of your manicure! don't buy, waste of money and will ruin your manicure. I just hate that i spend so long doing my nails (with designs and stuff) to find that this stuff takes it right off in a day!
I don't see the point of this - ok it may give you some shine, but it will start peeling off immediately, together with nail polish, base coat, everything. The nail polish alone will last a lot longer without this. I might try it on my toenails one day, although I'm positive I will NEVER buy this again - it wasn't cheap either. I would have given it a zero if I could!
I love this topcoat, total HG for pedi's. This makes my toe polish last and keeps it mega shiny. I have never used this on my fingernails, so I cannot attest to that. I have had a bottle kickin' around for years, I remember losing it and thinking "where didi my GOOD topcoat go?". This can be a little thick to apply but I have learned how much I need to get the job done. My bottle does not have a mirror finish, it is in a clear bottle. I can assure you I am reviewing the exact same product (different pkg in Canada?). All in all I will purchase this again if I need too, works GREAT for my toes!
I have been using this product for years and it's my HG of top coats. It makes my polish super shiny and smooths out any flaws there might be in my polishing technique. It dries super fast too. I just wish you could see how much is left in the bottle. It's covered in a mirror like silver finish so you can't tell.
