I’ve been a huge devotee of the Essie Gel Setter topcoat for years, and while I still love its performance, I do not love that it gets gloopy to the point of uselessness less than halfway through the bottle. I was gifted this topcoat (along with some Vinylux polishes) and I LOVE it. It applies so smoothly, with no dragging. It’s almost…sensual. The brush is the perfect width. It dries very quickly and my mani lasts for at least a week with no chipping. (My nails will chip sometimes, but only if they’re split/cracked on their own). Pedis last til I’m bored with the color. Tip wear is minimal. And I’m almost ¾ done with my bottle and it’s not gloopy yet. This works beautifully over all my regular polishes, but combined with the Vinylux ones, the whole situation is virtually bulletproof. I really love the polishes too. The formula, the wear, the application, the brush. Everything is so ergonomic. This will definitely be my new go-to brand. It’s a little pricey, but I can justify it since I’m saving so much money doing my own nails.
