I used this last night, two nails are chipped today… so much for "extra life, no chip, top coat"… what a joke
- spoke too soon, make that three chipped nails, I sit at a computer all day, how does this happen??

I really like Revlon polish and own a few of their top coats and colour polishes. They're high shine, they dry reasonably fast, don't streak, and last pretty well without chipping - I don't count the days until they chip, but noticed a difference since I started using this one, that my manicures last longer than previous top coats. I don't spend big bucks on polish to get Dior or something, but my previous one was OPI and I prefer this. Drying time is around 10 minutes, I guess, and they're completely dry, none of that 'they're dry to the touch but I wouldn't rub them' crap. I did mine today and took a shower 15 minutes after and washed my hair, nails are still perfect. I don't know if it's the shine, but the colours seem to come to life a bit more after the top coat is on, they look healthy, polished and shiny. I love it, I recommend trying this as well as some of their colours.

I know a lot of folks are into matte these days but if high high shine turns you on, get ready to be thrilled. This top coat is great. Turns average so-so polishes into a professional, high shine lacquer.
Just polished one day ago. Will definitely check back in with estimate on how long the chips hold back.

11/2/2014 UPDATE to decrease the rating.
Still love the high shine for a night out - 3 stars - but girls, that's all you're going to get. If you're every woman like me, who wash dishes, go to work, live a normal life - nothing strenuous - just normal, you'll get 1, maybe 2 days of pure beauty then the chips come out and all heck breaks loose. I can't deal with the haggard half done chipped up look.

Unfortunately I don't have time to remove, repolish and all that jazz 1-2 times during the week. Nope.

Probably the best top coat I've used so far. It dries completely in about 10-15 mins and does not give you bed sheet marks if you paint you nails before bed. It lasts between 3-5 days with minimal chipping and you can use the whole bottle without getting the gloppy mess you get with other top coats. It goes on nicely, no bubbles or striking and leaves a nice shiny coat. Will definitely consider buying this again but still on a hunt for the best top coat. Currently trying out seche vite and let's just say that stuff dries completely in less them 5 minutes!

Still trying to find the HG topcoat as my HG (Sally's Hansen Age Correct No Chip Topcoat has been discontinued). I saw the reviews on here and I went to the Revlon site and it says same ingredients as Colorstay Nail Sealant, which I also read reviews on.

I purchased this the same day as my Sally's haul, which included: Orly's Nail Defense, Orly's Rubberized Bonder, OPI Polish My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours and Salon Sciences Instant Artificals. I was way too excited to wait another day to try these so I painted my nails the same day...before bowling...

Now I know I like to set things up to fail but I just couldn't wait to paint my nails. So I did Orly's Bonder, OPI polish and the Revlon Extra Life Topcoat. I have to say that this topcoat dries pretty fast, considering it was only 45 min til bowling time. And it dries smooth and silky almost gel like. During bowling, some minor tipwear and dings.. nothing major. Now, 3 lippies because I painted my nails on Monday, its Thursday and I have a big chip on my pointer finger. BUT I can see the tipwear and some small chips on all the other nails which means it's trying its best not to chip. I don't know if it's the bonder though because I used both. I will update when I use it more without the bonder and with other base coats. 3 lippies for now.

My third bottle. Shinier than Sally Hansen, cheaper than SV.
I love this and would buy this again for sure.

A very good top coat, I prefer this over OPI. It's shiny, dries fast, isn't thick, and doesn't leave annoying bubbles. It's the only top coat I've tried that made nail polish last noticeably longer. The brush and packaging could be a little better though.

Works as well as the top coat they use in nail salons, and it's less than $7USD a bottle. Did a polish change at home and after a week only had a tiny bit of chipping on one finger. Can't really complain, I work with my hands all day and it can be tough on my polishes. Dries fast, and leaves just the right amount of shine.

This review is for the Extra Life No Chip top coat. I've used this over many polishes, even those claimed to chip easily. I haven't had a single problem with glitters lifting or polishes peeling, and this top coat adds several days of wear to a manicure. Love its firm nylon brush; it allows you to apply in a flash. I really like the liquidy consistency too, as it isn't sticky. Dries fairly quickly to a shiny gloss finish. I can't recommend this highly enough. It's the only top coat I'll use.
