I don't like this at all. I don't know if it looks nice after a long time, because after about 10 minutes it started peeling off. It's thick & globby and adds an extra millimeter or so to your nails because it sticks off to far at the tips, with a globby stringiness. I had to use a nailpolish remover pen to get it to look normal, and that just let to more peeling.
I can't seem to find a good quality top coat from any brand. I've also used Sally Hansen's quick-dry (30 or 60 seconds, not sure which) top coat, but while it dried nicely and looked good a few days, it got cracked and looked bad soon after. If anyone knows a really good one, please let me know! Thanks :) But don't try this OPI stuff.
Used this with the base coat for natural nails and got chips within the week. Also gets thick after a while. Looking for a new topcoat...
It's funny I came across this site tonight, because I just gave myself a french manicure and I can't find my OPI top coat ANYWHERE. I have been tearing up the house for an hour trying to find it. I finally had to settle for the sally hansen top coat. OPI topcoat is the shiniest clear I have ever seen. And trust me, I have tried on MANY brands in the stores, trying to find one that is comparable to OPI for less money. Also, it holds the color underneath on very well too. I painted my toenails about 3 weeks ago with a cheap nailpolish and covered them with the OPI. And except for the fact that my nails are growing out. The polish still looks like I put it on yesterday. I would HIGHLY recommend this product. It is durable and EXTREMELY SHINY!!!!!!!!!!!
Works great. No bubbles for me (yet) and very shiny. Definitely made my polish last longer.
I bought this at half price, otherwise would have passed it by. A tough, long-lasting protective top coat that is hard and shiny. A must-have for your nail arsenal. What's not to like?
this is a good tough top coat- tends to take a long while to dry over nail enamel- even with drip dry. I do notice that it gets goopy at half-bottle, and see the bubbles another reviewer mentioned, so points off for that.
Basic top coat of the same quality as the rest of the OPI line. Bueno!
All i can say is that my manicure & pedicure last weeks longer because of this top coat! Will definately repurchase.
This stuff was awesome for the first 10 uses. I still have half of a bottle left, and after using it for about 10 times, it is becoming very thick and gooey and doesn't shine my nail polish very well like it used to. Also, the brush has dried-up top coat residue on it and it doesn't seem to work well now. I can't believe I haven't even used the whole bottle and I'll already have to throw it out. OPI's polishes are great, but some of their supplementary products really disappoint me, especially at their prices! I might try Creative Nail Design's Super Shiney Top Coat because of its good reviews.
Love this top coat, gave my pilsh staying power
