As far as anti-chipping, this seems to do a decent job, my nails lasted for the whole week with only some tip wear. That’s about the only good thing about this top coat. It is very slow drying, at...

Just not worth the money. Doesnt prevent nailpolish from chipping off at all. For me its not that tacky as everyone said, but its overall just very shitty. Wished I had read these reviews before...

Terrible, terrible top coat. It will literally take hours to dry. I waited about an hour and lightly pressed onto the nail to see if it was dry and it smudged. It gave a little bit of shine but who...

The good thing about this is that it actually works. This extends the life of my polish to at least three days without chipping, no matter what I'm doing with my hands. I could be washing my hair,...

This is a terrible topcoat. It makes the polish underneath bubble and look terrible. I have no idea if it actually keeps the chips away, as every time I have used it, I have had to redo my nails.

So this will be a sort of contradicting positive review but here it goes. This top coat makes whatever polish you use take forever to dry. I often wake up with sheet/hair marks after I use it. Why...

Honestly, I really love the Essie brand as a whole, but this product is just terrible. I normally use the fast drying top coat, but they were sold out. So I bought this one to try out. Big...

Wow, a big disappointment! I Well...painted my nils last night. The texture of this is very tacky. After a full hour, I touched them to see if they were dry. No..and it resulted in the polish...

Worst. Topcoat. Ever. I thought it was just me, but I should have read the reviews before I bought this! I liked Essie's Good to Go, so when I ran out of that I thought I'd try this one. It's...

Essie, what are you thinking? Did you even test this product? This is far and away the worst top coat I've ever tried. Despite letting it dry for an hour, the polish ended up being dented and...
