This is the *PERFECT* refresher topcoat! I was looking for a topcoat that I could use to freshen up a manicure and this is it! The formula is perfect - thin, so it flows easily, but not watery. Even though it's not a 'quick dry' top coat, I'd say it still dries nice and quick (I was able to use it and then unload the dryer 10 minutes later). As far as the claims that it brightens and enhances nail polish colors...sure, why not. It definitely gives a not-so-fresh manicure a brilliant, wet-looking shine, which makes the color pop! In my quest for the perfect 'refresher', I've tried CND Shiney, and Orly Glosser. I haven't tried Essie Shine-E yet, but Vivid is so amazing I'm not in any hurry to!

I use this as a refresher topcoat. Daily I recap my tips and put a thin layer over my existing manicure. If I'm wearing really light colors I'll do a quick swipe with remover first, but it's not really needed with most darker colors. Dries very fast, can be streaky if you apply too thin. I love that it keeps my mani looking shiny for 7+ days. I had tried using my normal topcoat to refresh in the past, but it was just too thick- this is the perfect thickness when applied. I have not noticed a 'brightening' effect to polish, but I don't know if that is just because I only use it as a refresher topcoat.

Bought this for my holographic nail polishes specifically. Wouldn't be without it now! It is an amazing top coat that works quite well w/holos (not all TC do) along with helping other polishes maintain their color as you wear them multiple days!

This top coat is an interesting concept. It's a clear, shiny top coat w/a touch of blue tint to it for the purpose of making a faded manicure perk up nice & bright & true to color. The effect isn't intense, it's just subtle but it does the job. Before I found this polish, I got tired of my pink manicures fading into a shade of peach after a few days (nice as the peach shade was, I wanted it to remain pink) & Vivid works nicely to bring the original color back to life. I love the high gloss shine it dries into. My polish still looks wet but it's dry. I ordered this online from a nailpolish website for just $3. Now my pink can stay pink & any other color I polish my nails will stay true from day one till the day I take it off. Definitely keeps the color vivid.
