This is a really fast drying top coat, but I experienced my polish lifting at the sides and peeling on the first day, similar to Poshe. I also don't like how small the brush is. I will stick with my new HG Out the Door.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this top coat! It dries very quickly and adds a very nice gloss to any polish. I religiously give myself a weekly manicure and most of the time I don't end up with ANY chipping. Amazing! I highly recommend this top coat. The only complaint I have is that after the bottle is about half gone it tends to get a little thick. Other than that it's great!
LOVE this topcoat! I don't even know where to begin! My polish lasts for more than 4 days without chipping (polishes being opi china glaze n essie). That's a record for me and it's so shiny...on the 3rd day I still felt it was so shiny. What's the best is it dries SO quick. I'm so happy I brought I this. Would definitely buy it again. :)
This is my current HG top coat. It is not a thick as SV or Poshe, therefore you have to be careful with application. If you put a thinner coat, the brush marks will appear on your polish (tip: hold the bristles parallel to your nail bed). This top coat will harden your nail very nicely and add a beautiful shine and it REALLY prevents chipping on me. The great thing is that the shine will last for several days without the need to "freshen" up your manicure. I don't use glitter NP, so I'm not sure how it would work with that type of finish, but for cremes and shimmers, it's wonderful.
One thing I took a lippie off for was the brush. It's just bad. Skinny and won't fan out. I have solved this problem by using the big brush from one of my OPI top coats. Works like a charm.
For reference, quick dry top coats I have tried before: SV, Poshe, SH Mega Shine.
This is a great top coat! It dries quickly as it promises it will. It also dries completely, so you can actually use your hands much sooner than with other top coats. It looks glossy and shiny and helps keep the polish on the nails longer. I am impressed! I also noticed that I do my nails more often since having this top coat since it does dry so fast. It gives me the feeling that a manicure takes less time. I would definitely recommend it to others and I will be repurchasing it! It is worth the money!
This is a nice topcoat, but it does NOT dry nearly as fast as Poshe or Seche Vite. In fact, it dries only a little faster than my non-fast-dry top coats =/
I must say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this topcoat.
This works especially well with creme or sheer nailpolish underneath (like a lot of Essie n/p). It gives it such a glossy finish, no other topcoat does such a good job. Yesterday, the sunlight literally reflected of my bright green nailpolish LOL
At first I was a bit hesitant, b/c I thought the brush was kinda small. And I prefer a brush that will cover your entire nail in one swipe (like OPI). But it is actually not bothering me at all, because of the thin substance of the topcoat (unline seche vite) it is easy to spread.
It dries quickly, and it really makes my nailpolish look so gorgeous. So even, superglossy, almost like gelnails, so professional.
I must say: I am prone to chipping my nailpolish, I don't know what is wrong with me, it just does. But this definitely makes them last longer, it still differs but at least it doesn't chip the same day.
Also, there is no to minimal shrinkage at the tips, so that is a big plus too!!
- Very very glossy finish, great with cream np
- Quite thin consistency, not so thin that it is annoying, but very easy to spread with the little brush and give a nice thick even, glossy coat on your nails.
- Dries fast
- Price, not the most expensive, but you can find cheaper ones.
Will purchase again!
After using Seche Vite for a long time and growing increasingly annoyed with the thickness after a half bottle is used, I decided to try something new. I don't know what it is about this stuff, but nail polish that would've previously chip within one day lasts almost an entire week. It dries things incredibly fast and is really shiny, and not as thick as Seche. Plus, miiiinimal shrinking at the tips. LOVE.
This stuff definitely dries really quickly but my nail polish always chips within a day when I use this stuff. I'll use up the bottle but I won't purchase again
Bought Good To Go based on rave reviews and no Formaldehyde and can't say I'm pleased with it...at all.
*note: used only with OPI lacquers
- does dry quickly
- not very glossy
- experience shrinkage on tips
- chipping within 24 hours
- watery consistency
