I was looking for something other than my current top coat I had gotten at the Shoppers that sucked. I picked this up at Sally's yesterday and was very eager to use it. I had never used a top coat that dried the polish completely underneath before and was excited. I do nail art so sometimes I have a lot of layers of polish that sometimes doesn't completly dry. I put this stuff on and OMG. The shine was amazing!! And with my old top coat it was only shiny for like the first minute after applying it. This shine didn't fade. With my old top coat I had to wait hours for it to be dry and in the process would get dents and nicks. In under 5 minutes my nails were bone dry. I've never had nails that hard before. It was actually like the polish was a part of my nail. I went to bed and it the morning I felt like running around the house jumping for joy. FOR ONCE, NO SHEET MARKS!!! I couldn't believe it!!! And the shine was still as bright as when I first applied it. I have found my HG top coat for sure. And it's so cheap too!! Next time when I go to Sally's I'm getting the BIG bottle because I don't need to use anything else. I don't need to try Seche Vite or Posche. I found something at the quarter of the price that works great! I will recommend this to ALL my friends and family. For anyone that loves doing nails and hates waiting an hour before you can apply a top coat for worries of smearing, smudging or anything like that, you don't have too anymore. Wait like 5 minutes put this on and in under five minutes its dry and your ready to go with no worries of putting dents in your nails while your out doing things for the day. Or if your painting your nails latter. No worry of sheet marks in the morning! Go out and get this stuff! The only thing I'm not crazy about is the brush. It seems a little tough, like the bristles aren't soft enough or something. Other than that its great!

I did like this top coat quite a bit. I was a little disappointed when 3 days into my manicure I started getting chips when it says it would last for 10 days. I also found that I got some bubbling if I applied to thick or applied another coat a day later which was kind of disappointing :( All in all its a decent top coat but not so much for a base coat. EDIT~~!! I put down the score because I found something SO much better. Beauty Secrets fast dry. Its cheaper found at Sally's and is so much better. No sheet marks, drys all the layers of polish really fast. The shine lasts, AND NO BUBBLES!!!
