Like the other reviewers, my 3 bottles of Gel Setter became stringy, thick, gloopy, and difficult to work with around halfway through the bottle. Adding some thinner before each usage helps but in...

This does its job as a high shine top coat. It goes on very smoothly and dries quickly as well, definitely not something for people looking for a quick dry top coat, but I find it dries much faster...

Like quite a few other reviewers, I loved this at first. It was a nice, shiny, quick drying topcoat that really seemed to help my polishes last longer. I'm about halfway through the bottle and it's...

Great shine and good chip resistance. Dries relatively quickly. Would purchase again if I don't find anything else I want to try.

This stuff is the bomb! I don't even use it with Essie brand polishes. You need to make sure you swipe the polish across the edge of your nail though, that helps a lot. Chips appear for me after...
