Review of Unlisted Brand European Secrets - Rock Top Coat by felgoj
I haven't used this very much (already have many other brands & this 1 is new for me) but the couple of times I've used it so far I really like it.
It dries very fast, leaves my nails harder & best of all very durably shiny - the glossy shine is tough & it lasts, it doesn't scratch up easily or dull quickly like a number of other topcoats I've tried.
It costs about $7-$8 @ Sally's & other websites, but it was worth trying. Seche Vite (approx same price) was a disappointment in the shrinkage dept (other than that it's perfection in a bottle, despite containing toluene). Rock is much better (though I will continue to mix it up & use other topcoats as well). I think Rock does shrink just a little bit, but extremely minimally, not at all as obviously as Seche Vite does.
Would certainly repurchase this topcoat again. (I also bought European Secrets Rock Hard hardener but have yet to really test it out.)
UPDT 2/7/12 -
I forgot about this topcoat for a long time - I just had it sitting in a box w/my other seldom-used bottles. Last night I used it as a refresher to shine up my dulled manicure (since SV can't be used as a refresher) - the shine, the brilliance & the hardness are magnificent! Why did I ever stop using this topcoat?? (...I think it was the very thin consistency & the strong odor that I really didn't like.) But now I really love this product & will use/buy again. It hasn't even evaporated or thickened at all in the last 1.5 yrs in storage! Good stuff.
