While I love China Glaze's polishes, this top coat was really rather disappointing. It did dry very quickly, but the shine was really lacking compared to Seche Vite, for example, or O.P.I. Also, the smell was so strong compared to other top coats, and it was hard to get just the right amount on the brush because the brush was really awkward. It was like very flat and close together until about the middle, then it suddenly fanned out very quickly. It made it very awkward to use. For the price, not worth it.

China Glaze is the best quick drying top coat that I've used - it dries out soft polish in under a minute, and adds an extra shine to my polish. An extra great bonus is how Fast Forward also smoothes the surface of the polish, so if you accidently leave minor dings or smudges on your polish during application, Fast Forward erases them.
True; Fast Forward is not that great a topcoat when it comes to being an anti-chipping formula, but it doesn't claim to be. I'm both tough on my hands, and become bored with whichever nail colour I've picked rather quickly anyway, so I'd rather have a topcoat that helps smooth out the polishes surface and hardens it quickly so I'm good to go sooner, over one that has an average drying time and focuses on keeping the polish neat for a week.

This stuff is cheaper than Seche Vite, and the shrinking isn't as bad which I really appreciate! But I let my polish dry for 10 minutes before I put on this fast dry top coat and it STILL smudged my nails. Not sure about the drying time yet but I'm so frustrated with how it destroyed my manicure that I won't be buying it again.

Decided to try this product and I must say...IT WAS A DISASTER! I applied this on top of a jelly based glitter polish in hopes it would make it dry fast and 24 hrs later...my nail polish was still not completely dry and I ended up simply peeling the polish off because they were not dry! This top coat also has a lingering strong odor! I will be sticking to my Seche Vite top coat from here on out!!

I love how fast my nails dry but it doesn't keep them from chipping.

I quite like this one, it dries fast and gives nice shine. It also doesn't go goopy easily. However, I'm not the biggest fan of the brush in this one and also the smell is a bit weird for me.

I think China Glaze is my favorite nail polish brand. I love this top coat. It is every bit as good as Seche Vite and smells a whole lot better. The formula is much thinner and easier to use as well. I have not had any shrinkage and it dries lightening fast. And it's cheaper than Seche Vite. As with all China Glaze products, the brush works well and I get one thin coat without any problems.
It's a great top coat, I will absolutely buy again.

I am constantly painting my nails expecting salon results and sadly always end up chipping or smudging them within minutes of applying just a base coat and layer of color. I nominate Fast Forward for beauty product of the year - you cannot mess up polishing your nails anymore with this top coat! Within 30 seconds of applying a base coat (preferred: Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat) and layer of color, you can top it off with FF and your nails will SHINE. In respect to other reviews, I also compared it to Seche Vite - Seche takes longer to dry than FF - I also did not experience the "shrinkage" and only slight peeling once.

Gives the best shine out of all my top coats
The worst smudger for nail art!
Quite expensive for the job it does
The smell is horrible
Would only use for basic manicures as the shine is fantastic. However it's most notorious for smudging and smearing nail art. Steer clear other nail artists!

I like that it makes my nails dry extremely fast! However I find that it doesn't help with chipping, in fact it makes it worse! I find that large chips of nail polish come off very easily. Quite disappointing! Still on the hunt for the perfect top coat..
