As a nail technician, I can't compare to other base/top coats. I finally took the plunge and ordered the base coat and the dry fast top coat- they are so incredibly glossy, long wearing on your mani/pedi color and dry extremely fast. What I like to do for a treat and extra pampering is after the top coat is applied,drop cuticle oil around the cuticle, (do not apply directly on top of the drying nail polish because it can cause bubbles and separating) this will make your polish last and nourish your cuticle. The price for either is a little much, but if you want lasting manis and pedis, take the plunge!

I really like this TC. It's gives a super shiny gloss and even if I do my nails right before bed, they are never messed up in the morning. Of course, I try to stay still when I 1st lay down to avoid dinging them. I love how fast it dries BUT dislike the shrinkage! Another con, I'm not sure it is the bottles I've been getting, but the Polish doesn't stay as shiny as it did the 1st day. Will compare to other top coats once I switch.

I saw so many great reviews about this product, and I was also in search of a good top coat. I am using OPI base coat and I love it, so I thought why not try a different brand for a top coat. So I purchased the Seche Vite top coat ( I bought the mini bottle) and boy, I am so disappointed. The consistency is so gooey, it doesn't apply well to my nails, and often, it ruined my manicure that I had to remove it and start all over again. Also, because it is so gooey, the brush will often take some time to have all the product settled in or else you have have this spidery effect ( I SUCK AT EXPLAINING! HAHA)
One thing I realised, my manicure will chip either the next day, or in less than 4 days. At first i thought it's my nail polish that's causing the chipping. But then I did apply nail polish without the top coat and it lasted for more than week!
Thank god I bought the mini bottle, and I think I will try OPI top coat next.

I love this top coat! It dries so fast and leaves a super glossy finish on the nails. It also helps the polish last soo long! The only downside of this polish is that it does get thick over time. Besides that, I love it!

I was really disappointed in this stuff. I've been hearing people orgasm about it for years now so I finally bit the bullet and got some, but I've been nothing but disappointed in it. Yeah, it dries quickly, BUT AT WHAT COST?! By the next day, the tips of my nails are white. After three days, they start to look smudgey and cloudy. I'm absolutely going back to Insta-Dri now.

Boo. I don't spend all that time on a mani for my freaking top coat to ruin it. Sorry, I'm bitter. Y'all, the shrinkage. I can't. And then to only be able to use half the product before I have to buy another product to make the original product useable again? No sir. Not for me. Very fast drying and thick, which I like, but it's not enough for me to use it. Emotionally, I just cant. INM Out the Door is the same price, has a comparable dry time, and has never shrunk any brand of any polish I've used. I gave 2 lippies for dry time and thickness.

Ok What i do like about this top coat is that it is defiantly the quickest drying topcoat. It literally took about 5 minutes to make my mani dry. What i've come to hate about this top coat is that it seems that i always get tiny bubbles once it dries. EVERY TIME! No matter what polish i wear. also the shrinkage is bad. even with wrapping it shrinks. i tend to wear neutrals so i'm sure no one else notices but it drives me nuts so i will end up redoing my nails much more frequently. it is also too thick for my liking. you certainly cannot brush this on every other day to extend your manicure. Its just too thick and looks terrible. i am on my second bottle but i will not repurchase again. I have tried many many top coats and i think i will stick with Essie good to go. It is not nearly as fast but it is much thinner and it it does not chip easily.

This is such a great topcoat! It takes awhile to be able to use it properly (to avoid shrinkage, bubbles etc) but it's so worth it. If you don't cap your nails it will wear at the tips, or if you hit a tip hard enough, cause the entire coat of polish to come off (chlorine causes it to come right off, but that's what it does to most nail polishes). It lasts a relatively long time, and it makes your nails so shiny though!
This combined with the fact that my nails are dry in under 10 minutes completely sells me. I absolutely HATE waiting for my nails to dry.
The only other drawback I can think of is it starts getting goopy and impossible to work with about halfway through the bottle, which is a little bit earlier than most topcoats I've tried, but you can fix that with a little bit of Seche Restore!
I can't tell you how many times I've repurchased this product, and I definitely don't plan on stopping anytime soon!

This is amazing because it comes out so smooth, but not so amazing because it tricks you into making you think it's dry. When you touch it after applying, it feels dry, but if your nails hit something it makes a dent.

Its my first time using this product and I do have to say wow! The dry time on this top coat is like no other I have ever used. Although its a bit pricey its worth it, now I didn't understand at first what others meant about shrinkage until I polished my nails and I saw it. So as long as you wrap your nails with base coat and color you should be fine. It does have an odor to it due to toluene but it doesn't bother me I just opened my door.
