Definitely my favorite quick dry top coat, and I lost count of how many I've tried. Inexpensive, easy to find, easy to thin if necessary, and it never goes cloudy like that overpriced quick dry brand so many seem to like. The only downside is that I now have a ridiculous number of barely used other quick dry top coats sitting in a Helmer that will never be used, as well as a nearly full 4 oz …Read more

This stuff is ok when I don't have my Seche Vite, but definitely not a replacement for SV. It dries fairly quickly but I feel like my nails were tacky for about 10 mins after. So yeah this stuff is better than a lot of other reasonably priced top coats, but definitely not blown away by it.

This is a fabulous fast drying top coat. Apply to wet nail polish, wait a few minutes and you can use your hands, albeit in a limited fashion. Soon after it will be totally smudge free. I love this stuff!

This is my HG topcoat. NYC's extra shiny top coat is my all time favorite but I just don't have time anymore to wait for it to dry. Their quick dry top coat dries as fast as my Essie Good to Go plus it's shinier. Helps my mani last and holds up okay at my very hands on job.

The down side is, as with many quick dry top coats, a good glitter polish eats it so you'll …

This is my all-time favorite top coat. It applies smoothly, dries quickly and adds beautiful shine. Plus I think it really does extend the life of a manicure. For $2 it's an unbeatable deal, and I'm already probably on my sixth bottle of this, while other more expensive top coats in my polish collection are essentially ignored since this one outshines them all.

I am in love with this topcoat. I bought this top coat a while ago and I remember how much I loved it. When I ran out I figured I went to Walgreens to pick up a new top coat and saw that Rimmel's top coat was on sale, so I picked it up. I used that top coat two times and absolutely hated it. So the next time I wanted to paint my nails I ran to CVS and saw that they had one last bottle, so I …Read more

Great top coat. Dries very fast but does not dry wet polish. Good for maintenance. I got this at CVS for $1.99.

Fantastic! I had used Seche and Essie's good to go before. I have also tried Sally Hansens and Revlon top coats. This one beats them all an it is less than 2 bucks. Dries quickly, leaves a shine finish that lasts. I'm so happy I read the reviews and gave this a try!

This top coat is amazing! I found out about it one day when I was reading Nouveau Cheap's blog and there were rumors about it being discontinued. It seemed that this was everyone's favorite top coat that compared to seche vite but was extremely cheap. Now for the record I have never tried seche vite, prior to using the NYC top coat I was using the Revlon colorstay. But I think that the …Read more

This is a pretty good top coat. Comparable to essie's good to go. Dries to the touch fairly quickly and doesn't make my nail polish "shrink". I've noticed that with some polishes, I'll get hairline cracks after a few days, but not sure if it's because of this topcoat. Since I do my nails every 4 -5 days, I go through top coats pretty quickly and NYC's $2 …Read more
