This is absolutely THE BEST top coat I have ever used. I've tried many...Sally Hansen, Seche Vite, Butter London...absolutely NOTHING compares. It really does what it says: dries to the touch in 1 minute, dries completely in 5. It has amazing stay power, too. My manicure lasted twice as long as usual without chips. I still had some edge wear, but that was after about 4 days rather than 1 or 2 days with other top coats. I really, really love this top coat.
Unfortunately, and I'm not 100% sure if this is true or not, but I've heard it's been discontinued. I really hope not because I'm hoping to use this polish forever. I really cannot rave about it enough. Definitely my HG.

I went through 5 bottles of this product. Could not rave enough.
My nail polish lasts twice as long without chipping, and brittle nails feel so strong when I have a single layer of this topcoat on my nail polish. My mani still looks as fresh and shiny as day 1 few days later.
Now I use the Poshe base coat as well. But just the top coat is more than enough.
It becomes a bit thick towards the end of the bottle. But I think just about every polish product does.

LOVE Pose top coat! My absolute fave! I never have any shrinkage with this, as opposed to Seche Vite which makes my nails look like they've been shrink wrapped. Seche Vite dries a tiny bit quicker, but I'm patient and willing to wait the 10 extra seconds this takes to be completely dry b/c I prefer the results. I always find this at Sally's for about $6, which I think is reasonable for something that works so well. I like the smallish bottle and find the handle and brush to be the perfect size for me. This does thicken somewhat, but it does not make it unusable. Thick or thin I get the same great results!

Brought this product because it didnt have the harsh chemicals like seche vit has. It work wonderfully when I first use it. But now it's just not the same. I usually do nail art, and it does seem to mess it up sometime. But it does dry my polish quicker then other quick dry top coat I have tried.

This is my HG top-coat, I absolutely love it. It's not long to dry at all, and it gives a beautiful glossy finish! I never tried Seche Vite because of the cancer thing, so Poshe top coat is the best!

Having never tried SV I can't compare it to that, however, I have tried INM - Out the Door and it's nothing compared to Poshe. I love it. Would definitely repurchase again and again.
My nails were touch dry within 10 minutes and hard in around an hour. Me being the impatient person I am, this is a god sent.

I switched to this fast-drying topcoat from Seche Vite.
I like it better because it doesnt have carcinogens in it. It does dry slower than Seche Vite. It will look dry, but the nailpolish will still be soft enough to dent.
The shrinking on this polish isn't too bad at first, but gets worse with time. Now it shrinks so far you can see the tips of my nails!
One thing I've noticed with all fast drying topcoats is once you get through half the bottle, the shrinking gets very bad and the formula gets very thick. Thinning it with nail polish remover doesnt help.

My 2nd topcoat after Seche Vite (really bad imo). I think it dries fast and works pretty well, i'm quite satisfied with it. But i think its not really chip-resistant, and i hate how its difficult to finish up the whole bottle as the brush cannot reach to the bottom of the bottle. Wastage :(

Not only would I not buy this again, I took the one bottle I did buy back to the store. Never have I experienced shrinkage the way I did with this product. I tried it a couple of different ways - I waited a few minutes after my last coat of polish before applying - shrinkage. I waited a couple of days before applying and I had so much shrinkage everywhere on my nails - sides, cuticles and tips. It was awful. Do not recommend at all.

I have purchased several of these. I actually like this one more than SV.
It goes on smooth, never needs thinner, dries quickly.
Does exactly what I need it to, performs to the fullest every time.

This is my current HG top coat. Great texture (though it tends to thicken up with use, so you will have to thin it) and dries SUPER QUICK. I prefer this over seche vite because I get less shrinkage. To prevent it I've found its best to let polish dry for a minute or two before applying and always wrap your tips with color and top coat. Dries very quick and is super shiny. Can be purchased at Sally's.

This is one of two topcoats that I use, the other being Seche. It is preferable to me as it doesn't conain the nasty chemicals. I don't feel as if I need a fumigation hood to apply it! The formula is thick, and gets a little sticky if you are painting slowly. It dries very quickly, same as
Seche. I do get the shrinkage of my polish away from the nail tips, unless I wait until my final polish coat is dry to apply the Poshe. I wonder if all topcoats do this.... I always use Orly Bonder, two to three coats of polish, then topcoat for each manicure, and I always have chipping after two days. As I work in health care, this may occur regardless of what I wear. Still searching and comparing products to see if something increases duration....

I have both Seche Vite and Poshe, and I have to say that Seche Vite is a hundred times better for me. The two number one complaints I hear from people about Seche Vite is the shrinkage and how quickly it becomes thick and near unusable. Personally, I've only experienced shrinkage from SV once or twice, but I thought I'd give Poshe a try since my SV has gotten pretty thick. My sister and I have used this for 5-10 manis between the two of us, and the difference is already pretty clear.
1. Poshe does not dry nearly as quickly. My sister and I were accidentally denting our nail polish just because we were used to how fast SV dries. With Poshe, it took an hour or so before the polish was completely dry.
2. Poshe is not very self-leveling. It's thinner than SV, so it doesn't really fix mistakes for me. It's more like a regular clear polish in that respect.
3. Poshe shrinks like crazy. People say SV shrinks...but I have never had shrinkage like this with SV. My nails look disastrous.
4. Poshe loses its shine faster than SV does.
5. Poshe doesn't protect my mani like SV does. SV stays rock hard and can't be dented by anything short of banging your nails against something so hard the polish and part of your nail chips off. With Poshe I can see tons of little scratches everywhere.
I do like the design of Poshe's bottle, and I'm sure that it won't thicken up as quickly because of it. However, as a top coat it really didn't live up to my expectations. I won't be repurchasing this.

This is the only TC that I use now. Period. I've tried others, but none give the shine, smoothness, and protection that Poshe does.

One of the best top coats I've tried. Unfortunately, I lost mine halfway before I finished the bottle.
The thing I really liked about this top coat was that when I applied it it wasn't simply a thin, runny layer or product. This product was slightly thicker than what I used to - the same consistency of some of my nail polishes.
I feel like it gave it a nice hard layer to protect my nail polish.
On average, 4-5 days after application I would notice my nail polish receeding at the tips - followed by chipping.
This top coat was mega shiny and managed to make even some of my terrible applications look pretty, smooth, and even which is why I loved it.
Will definitely repurchase as a safe buy because of how good it makes my nails look.

This is the only topcoat I will ever use in my entire life! It dries fast as promised by its claims. It makes any polish look really good and gives it that shiny, glossy finish. Definitely HG material! I usually buy the big 2 oz bottles for only $12.00 at my local wholesale nail supply store which I think is a steal! I've tried Seche Vite before and I have to say I prefer this over SV any day. Also got my bestfriend hooked and she now swears by this topcoat.

This top coat worked like a charm the first few times I used it. It dried my manicures super quick, was shiny, applied easily, and I got a week's worth of wear.
However, after a few weeks, the viscosity turned unbearably thick. It still dried fast and left the manicures shiny but I had to be careful in applying it as it could leave streak marks and unevenness if I wasn't careful.
I've used thinners on it but nothing works and if anything, the thinners seem to introduce more bubbles into the top coat, which then translate into my manicures getting more bubbly these days. To complicate matters, it's been super stringy.
To conclude, had the top coat maintained the initial viscosity, I would have gladly championed this as my HG but because it turns thick so fast, I cannot.

This is my new hg top coat. Love it so much. I was using Revlon Quick Dry but like most quick dry top coats it did nothing to prolong the life. The first bottle I bought was great, but the second bottle was a bad formula that bubbles no matter what, so I decided it was time to look for a new TC.
I was using SV but it's just ok...and like most QD TC's it does not extend the life of my mani. I don't need it to last long...I really just want to go 2-3 days without any chipping and neither SV or Revlon was doing that for me. With SV my mani typically chips within 24 hours.
I am on Day 3 of my Poshe mani with NO chipping! There is a bit of tip wear but I didn't wrap my tips so that's to be expected, but it's really not even noticeable. It does what it says: dries to the touch in 60 seconds, sets within 10-15.
I had no smudges, no sheet marks, no shrinkage, no cuticle drag...
I agree with others that it's not quite as shiny as I'd like it to be....but it's about as shiny as SV. In my experience the Revlon Quick Dry has been the shiniest.
Even though I wish it had more shine, Poshe is officially my new favorite top coat and the one I will be using most often from now on.

The only topcoat I will use for the rest of my nail-painting days! Serious Holy Grail status. Dries quickly, looks great, and easy to apply. I also got mine for $1 too!

This top coat has shrunk every single mani I've put it over without fail. It's shiny and dries in a decent amount of time, but I don't like waking up the next day to shrunken polish away from my tips (even with wrapping), cuticles and sides.
On the plus side, I've been using it up as a mani refresher on dry polish and it works well for that because it dries quickly and doesn't shrink already set polish.
