Move over Sech Vite!!! This stuff is just as good as SV, dries your polish quickly, leaves a fabulous shine & it makes your mani last! And more importantly, it doesn't get all thick & goopy on you before you even get to half the bottle (annoying and a waste). Love this stuff! continued >>
I think this stuff is pretty good...glides on well, leaves a nice protective shiny coat over my nail polish. I don't notice it pulling on the polish under it, then again I wait a minute after application so it's a little more dry. Keeps my polish looking decent for days. Does a decent job drying my polish, but I'm still careful after doing a manicure anyway. I don't own a lot of quick-dry topcoats but I'd definitely get this again.
This product is fantastic because it truly does dry right through all the nail varnish. I apply a base coat, two to three coats of colour and then leave my nails to dry for about a minute before I go over with in a snap. Then after a couple minutes, my nails are dry and smudge proof. Great top coat as well; I'm pretty clumsy so nail varnish chips easily for me but this has extended the life of my nails from 2 days to 4, so I'm pleased. Highly recommend.
This product works pretty well. I'm actuallly using it now to dry off my nails.Their are better ones out their. But it comes in a cute package. It works. I jjust overload every finger till it has a lot of coating Speaking of which I think my nails are done. lol
This stuff does its job, it does dry very quickly but otherwise I'm a bit disappointed in it. I had read that it's almost as glossy as SV, which I never tried, but it's really not that glossy at all. I never ever had my polish chip in a day or two but that's exactly what happened when I used In A Snap. It works pretty well on top of Orly polishes but not that great with other brands. Sometimes it completely destroys metallic shimmer or even changes the color of the polish. I don't think I'll ever get this top coat again, especially since it's so expensive. I'll have to be more patient instead. lol
I'm really surprised more people don't rave about In A Snap instead of Poshe and Seche Vite-- compared to the two of those, it's much, much easier to use. It doesn't dry quite as quickly as the thicker quick-dry topcoats do, but I've never had to thin it (and I've already refilled my bottle once) and it's texture makes it much easier to control. One of the most annoying quirks of Poshe/SV's thickness (especially when they need to be thinned) is shrinkage; In A Snap doesn't shrink at all, and it's nice not to have to worry about that.
Another kind of neat thing I like about this one is that you can use it over dry polish to "refresh" your manicure, unlike other quick-dry TCs that can only be used over wet polish.
The one drawback in comparison to Poshe (and the reason I still use Poshe about 50% of the time) is dry time. It dries to the touch, but it won't dry your polish rock hard as quickly as other quick-dry topcoats. I combine mine with CND's Dry and Shine for similar dry time to Poshe, but the fact that it requires 2 products for what Poshe does in just one makes it just slightly miss perfection. So close, though!
Love this top coat! This drys suuuuper fast and does not leave me handicapped for hours waiting for my nails to dry. (I'm naturally a very impatient person and am not willing to sit and do nothing for a long period of time.) This is great! Smells like alcohol, rather than that regular "nail polish" smell, if you know what I mean. Love the frosted glass bottle, its really pretty! Also makes the polish really easy to remove with non-acetone remover. My only gripe with this is that it isn't one of the shinyest top coats and is not the best for protecting against chips/tip wear. Usually what i do is after all the layers are dry, when i have a little free time I put on an extra coat of SH Double Duty base/top coat which gives it that extra shine and durability. Since In a Snap is a pretty thin formula, it you like layering polishes and making designs, when it dries, you will still be able to "feel" the design (the bumps and all) so the SH also helps to fill it in and smooth it out.
Like this topcoat. Dries very quickly. Leaves a nice glossy finish and "corrects" the nail polish without looking like it is lifting it from the nail. I haven't had a problem with it leaving the nail polish tacky underneath, but others have (which may be a function of the types of nail polish I am using - mostly Milani and express-dry formulas). Between this and the Sally Hansen Double-duty that I am using as a base, my manicures are now making it through the day without chipping.
Orly's In a Snap top coat is a very, VERY quick-drying top coat. The downside is that it's drying as you're painting - and when you're done the only thing that's dry is the topcoat leaving the layers underneath still tacky and dentable. I'm giving this two thumbs down because I find Seche Vite to work much better at drying ALL the layers.
I used Poshe before this product and it got too thick, so I decided to try this one. It's not as good as Poshe. It's a lot thinner, yes, but I did my nails today and I just washed the dishes and they're chipped. I didn't have this problem with Poshe! I'm going back to Poshe, but before I do I'm going to mix this one with my old, thick Poshe to see how that works =)
