very very very matte. really good to create that matte effect- makes nails super dry looking. I cannot speak for the wear of the product... as I can't get any polish or top coat to last more than 24 hours on me!

Really great stuff. I use it in conjunction with my DIY cuticle oil to give my nails a break from polish. I feel like it really replenishes my nails and makes them look really healthy. I just put it on twice a day like instructed and then apply my cuticle oil around and under the nail free edge and massage that in three times a day. I feel like a few days of that really heals my nails and …Read more

Treatments - Orly - Cutique Stain & Cuticle Remover

I like it a lot! It does a great job at softening cuticles just enough to painlessly push the back with a spoon pusher. It also works great under the nail to clean dirt from under there. It also really does whiten the nails.

I think I am going to return this.

After One Use-

PROS: It hardens completely in the recommended 5 minutes. The hardness is amazing- like nothing I've felt. Almost like a Hard Gel nail extension.

CONS:
I was able to dent it after the two minutes of curing under a UV LED lamp.
It cracked on the second day at the tip.
It's a …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2014

CONS:
Shrinkage
Smell
Thickening halfway through the bottle.

I does dry incredibly fast though. The shine is pretty, but not as glassy as Poshe.
It doesn't bubble & flows really nicely over the nail- making it pretty mistake proof. It is a nice product. But the cons make me reconsider purchasing it again.

I returned it. It went on streaky and not at all glossy. What a terrible product. I am a huge Orly fan & love all their other products, Not sure why this is even there.

Treatments - Nicole - Drying Drops

Really good stuff. It does the job. Just have to take your complete manicure slowly- allowing each coat to dry to the touch between coats. Then I use a top coat that is fast drying like Poshe. You MUST wait 60 seconds before applying the drops, but then, two drops per nail. I find my full manicure will be dry in less than 5 minutes if I do this. But then I am extremely careful for up to an …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Poshe - Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2014

Beautiful stuff. Here's why:

SUPER fast drying. I mean: I can touch my nails in two minutes and they are dry! Even after my latest glitter jelly sandwich where I used a total of seven coats not counting the Poshe top coat- it dried ALL layers of polish. Not kidding:). The glassy shine is more beautiful than any other top coat I've ever used.

Cons: It might …

Treatments - OPI - Nail Envy - Original

This doesn't do anything as a base coat for keeping polish on- when I used it, I have never had a manicure last more than three days. Also, it contains formaldehyde, so continued used use is not recommended- one of the side effects of continued use is nails separating from the nail bed- yikes!

Not for me. I also noticed the yellowing that other reviewers mentioned. Going to …

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Start to Finish Base & Top Coat

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2014

Better than OPI Nail Envy as a base coat in terms of making my polish stay on...but the crappiest top coat ever. It drags on the nail which makes streaks in my polish and the shine is low to moderate at best. I will not purchase again.
