Two things I love about this top coat:
- It has a noticeable "leveling" effect on the polish underneath it. So for example I can put it on top of a polish that looks slightly streaky, and this top coat will somehow smooth out the streaks. That's really useful for sheer pinks that you want to stay sheer - when you can't fix streaks by adding another coat of color. I …

Zoya Armor is a fair top coat. The nail polish color comes off on the brush and the brush is thin (not enough bristles). The brush doesn't spread out to apply the top coat evenly. It provides a fair shine. Zoya Armor Top Coat is 5-Free (No formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl phthalate, or camphor).

While I really like Anchor (the base coat by Zoya/Qtica) I think Armor is just OK. It does not get as thick and "gloopy" as Seche Vite - but does not dry as fast either.

Armor is a shiny and perfectly passable top coat. Just not a HG.

That said - I feel that when I use Anchor first , then 2 coats of Zoya and then Armor on top - I do get a nice, long lasting …

I got Armor and Anchor to use with Zoya polishes. I had no problems with drying.

But it seems to me the Armor tends to dissolve the polish (makes sense, like dissolves like), so you have to put a lot on the brush and just swipe once on the nail to keep from pulling the polish off.

Best topcoat ever. Nothing, I mean nothing, stays on my nails for more than a day or two without peeling and chipping - ive tried tons of brands, nothing worked - until I discovered zoya. I use this topcoat with zoyas nail polishes and they do not come off until I take them off. It also works relatively well with other brand nail polishes, they don't chip and peel as fast as usual if I use …Read more

never experienced bubbles, dries fast and made polishes last at least a week with no chipping. i went on a 3 day hike that including crawling my way up through rocky trails and none of nails broke off. was also carrying a 50 lbs backpack that is a pain in the rear to put on and would somehow make my nails feel like it would snap off but didn't. great product if used religiously,let the base …Read more

Very disappointed, this topcoat somehow reacted with my polish and stained my nails. I use OPI base coat and colour and I didn't change anything else about my manicure except using this topcoat - my nails have never been stained by OPI before but when I removed the polish this morning my nails were completely stained red. I heard good things about Zoya and was looking for a less chemical-y …Read more

I have been looking for an amazing top coat for such a long time. I have tried many different types - including many by Sally Hansen, Essie, Seche, etc..This one is THE best. I used it with my Zoya nail polish..On the 3rd day I added another coat, and I am on day 7 and my nails still look really good! very minimal chipping! And I work at a computer and type all day, wash my dishes by hand, and …Read more

I LOVE ZOYA!! Love love. I have mostly Zoya polishes but I never tried the top coat for some reason, probably because it's never on sale and I always get my Zoya polishes when there's a special and don't want to waste a polish on a topcoat if I can choose a color. I ran out of my current topcoat SpaRitual's fast dry top coat, and am trying not to use SecheVite because of …Read more

The only top coat that works well with my Zoya nail polishes. I did not experience any bubbling issues as mentioned by others but that could be because I take care not to apply my polishes in direct sun or under direct air vent. I change my manicure once in 2-3 days so I cannot vouch for the wearability but at the end of 3 days I usually can only see minimal tip wear which is of no major concern.
