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 …Read more

Like many other reviewers, I just got this to use as a topcoat on my collection of assorted brand polishes, not with the Vinylux polishes as recommended. However, the issue that I have with it is one I can’t imagine being remedied by using it with the matching polishes. In short, it bubbles. Sigh. This topcoat has plenty going for it. It doesn’t have an overpowering chemical smell. The brush is …Read more

CND nailpolishes are one of the few kinds that actually last on my nails for a week or so. This is compared to the Formula X and nailsense gel polishes. I've found using this as a top coat adds to the life of other nailpolishes too!

I've discovered the holy grail of long lasting nails (I thought my only resort to long lasting manicures was the get gel ones done at the salon, which RUINS my already thin nails).

With this top coat and Vinylux nail polishes, I seriously get OUT OF THIS WORLD lasting power with no chips, it's awesome. I've tried lots of "2 step systems" and 1 step all in ones …

I like this top a lot. Almost no bubbling and it's not too extremely shiny which I prefer. I change my nail polish often but I wore this for about 5 days with no chips or scratches.

I don't understand why the reviews are bad. I haven't written a review in so long but after using this top coat for the past few months I needed to write one. I do my nails on Saturday morning every wk and it doesn't start to wear until Friday. And it stays super shiny all week. I couldn't live without it

To be honest, I purchased this top coat to use over all of my polishes; I haven't used the Vinylux polishes, so that may make a difference in wear.
It was just "okay." I didn't find it to be overly shiny, and for me it didn't help prevent chipping more than any other top coat.. It's also expensive at $10.50 per bottle. If I use a quick dry top coat …

I have a legitimate issue or two with the Vinylux top coat - and yes, I use the system as recommended by CND - and often can get 5 to 11 (yes 11) days of wear with minimal edgewear and no chipping IF - and only IF the top coat is fresh.

Once you open it you MUST seal it and keep it way from air - it can get bubbly and gloopy and negatively affect/effect your mani.

Be careful …

I chose this when i went in for a pedicure a few weeks ago, and while the nail polish hasn't chipped substantially, this scuffs like nothing else. There are so many white streaks on my toe nails which isn't something i usually suffer with, so i decided it must be this specific topcoat. If you're okay with taking an eraser to your toenail to rub off the scuffs every few days then go …Read more

First let me be very clear: I do NOT use this as recommended. I do not use it with the Vinylux polishes. But, with regular polish, it gives me the most perfect, flawless, long-lasting home manicure I've ever had. I have trouble with polish (any polish/any topcoat) lasting more than 2-3 days on me without major chipping. I work full-time, do a lot of typing, and have regular household …Read more
