Short n Sweet - I will NEVER buy another top coat from another brand ever again.
Wish I would have discovered this years and years ago.

I bought this product after reading rave reviews in all those magazines. I normally use Orly top coat shine. One day after doing my nails with Orly nail polish, I put this on it. Yes, it dries very quickly, yes it is very shiny, and brings out gloss to nail polishes. BUT, yes a very big BUT. This had my polish chipping by evening, my tips were completely bare, the shine was there, but no polish. I am sticking to my Orly top coat, that gives me a longer wear time. I will only use this when I have a special event, not to be used for everyday.

This top coat is awesome. It is thick and will smooth out any flaws in your polish. It dries very fast. Yes, there is shrinkage but it's minimal if you carefully apply to the edges of your nails. Super glossy too.

I bought this because of all the rave reviews here and elsewhere. It does dry very, very quickly, but I find that my nail polish chips very quickly too. I have tried different ways to applying it - putting it on right after my polish, when my nails are still wet, waiting a minute, two minutes, five - but the result is always the same: my polish starts chipping the next day.
Right now I am wearing a new polish by Dior (Destin); when I first applied it, I used Seche Vite and when it started chipping, I blamed Dior. I applied it again, using OPI top coat - and here I am, four days later, with only very minimal tip wear. I haven't done anything else differently, so I know it's Seche Vite.

I'm not too crazy about this. The drying time is really great at first but after awhile the product gets very goopy and sometimes I've had streaks and shrinkage ruining my nail polish even when I had a large enough drop to cover the nail adequately. I've also noticed that it takes longer to dry the more you use it.
The final kicker for me is that it's NOT 3 free and contains formaldehyde. I've worked in biology and zoology labs and I can detect that smell a mile away. This is not exactly something you want on or near your skin for long. And if you're wearing this for a week on one manicure, then again the next week, and again... As soon as mine got to the point of not even coming out of the bottle without a lot of coaxing I chucked it. I'd like to find another fast dry top coat.

Ok so after reading the mixed reviews, I thought i'd give it a shot and here's what I found....
- DRYING TIME! Really blown away with how quickly this product dries my nails!
- Super shiny!
- Found that it didn't actually make my nail polish last longer, it chipped quite easily (which I don't mind too much because I change my polish every couple of days anyway...)
- Shrinkage...easy to notice with bold colours...
I've seen loads of reviews about how cloggy this top coat gets, and I'm about half way through the bottle and it's still fine. I bought the restore just incase ;)
I'd def buy this product again! The super fast drying time and shine makes it all worth while.

Pros: makes nail polish last longer, gives professional shine, dries quickly, nice fluid consistency. Cons: smells quite strongly.

This top coat is not like others which take the nail polish off. This one actually works after i coated my nail about 4 times. I would suggest to let your nails dry completely before putting on the top coat. It worked for me! It left my nails very shiny and pretty.

Quite disappointed with this one. When it goes well, it can give you a beautifully glossy finish that lasts fairly well. But I honestly feel like it's too much work; it tends to cause a terrible amount of shrinkage with virtually all brands of nail polish I own and it takes a lot longer to dry than I thought it would (it just does not seche vite on my nails). If I'm extremely careful with about 2 of my polishes it looks amazing. I won't be repurchasing.

This is my holy grail top coat! I have been using this for so many years and there is no other top coat that compares to it!
-It dries your polish fast
-it leaves your nails extremely shiny
-it makes my polish last long
-it will fix any imperfections on your nail polish
It is hands down the best top coat ever. The only bad thing about it is that it does tend to thicken after a while, but I know that Seche Vite sells a product that can thin out the polish. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves to do their nails.
