So here are my two cents on the product: It is a highly cost effective product for someone who wants a good quality top coat. Being so cost effective, it isn't THE best product on the market, but the results are fabulous for a top coat that's only 1 dollar per .5 ounce! So, you really can't hold anything against it. However, here are the things that may prevent me from buying this again: it does bubble. You have to be really really careful about application to make sure you don't get bubbles. It does drag color if you go over one spot more than once, at least on wet polish! While it does dry quicker than a traditional top coat, it isn't nearly as fast as SHID or SV. It's also super thick, which I suppose is good but it can be a bit of a pain to apply at times! I found that with the really long brush stick in the salon size, all the excess top coat would drip down, and I would get a BUNCH of top coat on my nail, it would just be a huge pool and it was really hard to work with. The pros are, of course, the shine. That definitely is a plus, however I really would prefer sally hansen insta dry over this top coat, despite the price. It does make my polish last way longer than most top coats, but I'm battling that pro against the major bubbling con. OH, and as for self leveling, It does a pretty decent job, but I put like, four or five coats over a glitter to help it level out and look shiny, and it never got to that point for me, it was quite the disappointment. I mean, this one is great for the cost, but it's definitely not the best top coat out there.

Love this stuff so much! I bought the salon size bottle (2.5 fl oz.) at WalMart for $3.99. This stuff is amazing. It adds an extremely high gloss look to even the dullest nail polishes. It feels like I have a gel manicure because of the thick consistency. It makes all of my polishes go more than twice as long without chipping compared to any other top coat I have used. That includes high and low end. This stuff makes my nails dry so fast. I can apply this over polish that is not dry yet and it will seal and dry within two minutes tops. This top coat is pretty much magical compared to all others I have tried. I promise....I've tried and own a lot of top coats...and they're about to be donated to my young nieces.
Also, I have never experienced bubbling on my nails like one of the reviewers mentioned. This stuff has worked perfectly for me.
Tip: Even with cheaper nail polishes- if you reapply this every 3-4 days, your polish can last up to two weeks. Reapplying is not a problem for me since this dries super fast.

The name says it all. Its relatively fast drying, and provides and nice shine to the nails. I paid $4.99 for the salon size of 75ml / 2.5 fl.oz.
I will have to update on the wearing. I don't give a full 5 because I find the formula kind of thick, so I think it might turn goopy after the first half of the bottle. I'll see.
UPDATE Feb 18 2013
I agree with another reviewer that the thick consistency feels like a gel manicure, which is really nice. I don't find it that amazing at preventing chipping however, the finish is just amazing. I also don't mind reapplying this every few days because it dries fast. Still a 4 lippie product for me.

After losing my job because of my daughters illness I've been forced to cut costs... a lot. Although I love the results from SV I switched to Sally Hansen Insta-dri because of the health concerns with SV ingredients. Well, when I walking through Wal Mart one day I saw Pro-FX Quick dry and I figured for half the cost and more than twice the size it was worth a try. I'm glad to took the chance on this, It does take longer to dry that the other two but in the end great results and well worth it, especially for the price.

I was so hopeful after reading such great reviews for this top coat. I bought the salon size bottle at Walmart for $4.50ish. Would have been a steal if it worked!
Yes, it dries very fast and is very shiny/glossy, but it doesn't last AT ALL!
I tried it on top of polish and bare nails; tried thick coats and thin coats. No matter what I did it began PEELING OFF in big sheets after ONLY A FEW HOURS!
Absolutely the worst top coat I have ever tried.

as some of the other reviewers, I usually use S.V. top coat which I love. I don't know why this got good reviews (especially compared to S.V.) as it is a terrible product. I bought this because it was so inexpensive and I go through a lot of top coat. I was disappointed to find that it was finicky when it came to creating bubbles on my nails and after only a few hours I found that the shine went away leaving my nails looking dull. You get what you pay for! I really hated this and I think that I will be throwing it out instead of even attempting to use up anymore of the bottle. Terrible product. Do not buy.

Amazing! It does everything a top coat should. I like it 10X better than SV.

This is going to be my top coat pick for a long time! Picked this up at my local wal mart because they FINALLY had them in! OMG this stuff is awesome! It was under 5 bucks and it works great. It dries fast and has a super glossy finish. Very very inexpensive and impressive. Love that it doesnt have DBP and is toluene free! A HUGE PLUS! Unlike seche vite, which sucks after a while, and its expensive! Ahhh pick this up if you see it! Highly highly recommend!

This is the best top coat I've tried. It dries extremely fast like SV but it doesn't have that warning label on the side. It does get a little gloopy if you have it for a while but I had mine for about 8 months before that happened and I do my nails usually once or twice a week. It does dry very shiny and it's super cheap. I got mine at Walmart for $3 and it's salon size. HG

this stuff is AWESOME! it's just like seche vite except not as toxic. no warning labels on the side. this dries super super fast with a nice glossy finish. my manicures last about 5 to 6 days with this stuff. i've only been able to find it at walmart. HG! can't live without.
