Most Helpful Positive



So good. Combined with gel colour and genuinely looked like Shellac - got so many compliments.

Most Helpful Criticism

Wanted to love


I really wanted to love the Essie 'gel' nail products. but I have tried to use several times and although it is nice and shiny and dries super quick it peels quite quickly, unlike salon gel
  1. Amazing!


    So good. Combined with gel colour and genuinely looked like Shellac - got so many compliments.
  2. Good


    Saves my manicure from chipping within a day. Lasts about a week.
  3. Extends the life of nail polish


    The reality is regular nail polish you do at home is never going to last like going to the salon. This product really makes a difference in extending the nice look of an at home job. I was hesitant however it surpassed all expectations. Usually my nail polish peels/chips third day in, this made it last a good ten days.
  4. Cannot live without


    I love painting my nails and have tried every brand out there- this by far is the best top coat I have ever used. It seals the polish, dries fast and extends OPI and other good quality nail polishes for at least a week. I’ve recommended this to so many friends- you won’t be disappointed.
  5. recommend


    Fast drying, had two coats of colour and two coats of top coat in 15 minutes. The manicure has actually grown out like a regular salon manicure. Super shiny and no chips or scratches even after using steel wool to scour my pots and pans.
  6. shiny


    this leaves my nails nice and shiny really nice way to top off your at home mani
  7. Amazing product


    verified purchaser
    This top coat leaves your mani so shiny like a gel one! I highly recommend

  9. Nice and shiny


    Great top coat - leaves nails nice and shiny and dries quick.
  10. Best so far


    verified purchaser
    This top coat is the best I've used so far, although I've only used one other in the past. This one holds up really well for me - it doesn't get weird dents in the top or peel/chip easily at the edges. I think the brush is a really good size, too. The brush spreads over my entire nail on every finger except my thumb nail.
  11. High shine, no shrinkage


    Great high shine top coat with no shrinkage, however the top coat does begin to chip around day 5 for me.
  12. Best top coat


    This is one of the best top coats I’ve used. It makes the nail polish look smoother and shinier and lasts longer.
  13. Just okay


    easy to apply and dries down decently but does tend to chip within a week.
  14. Can't go wrong- excellent


    This is a great top coat, leaves a nice shine and polish lasts for days! The price is great too
  15. Great top coat


    This top coat adds a nice shine to the nails and when paired with an Essie gel couture nail polish, my manicure lasted for days without cracks.
  16. Nice shine


    Put this over my normal Essie polish and it’s stayed glossy for the last 5 days so will continue to use this
  17. Not to impressed


    I purchased this top coat with one of the Gel Couture polishes. I had high hopes for this product given it is labelled as a gel top coat and states "long-lasting".

    I only got a couple of days of nice nails until the colour started chipping, which is what I expect for a regular polish and top coat that is half the price.

    I won't be purchasing again.
  18. Ok topcoat- not the best. Just average


    I Purchased the topcoat in combination with the same brand nail polish and although the colored nail polish it was disappointing, this topcoat did what it said it does and is just like any other topcoat I’ve used, nothing special about it and also nothing that I didn’t really like. Just your avarege topcoat- leaves nails shiny, doesn’t last any longer than any other top coat I’ve used.
  19. Great!


    easy to apply, quick drying and adds great shine! Everything you need in a top coat. Love the bottle too!
  20. Classy chic


    Tried after reading many rave reviews. No disappointments here.
  21. love it


    The finish of this polish is high gloss, making the shade look chic and expensive. This wears for at least a week without chipping. Highly recommend.
  22. Excellent


    I great top coat that has a great brush. Easy to apply and dries well, and makes your manicure both shiny and last longer.
  23. Amazing


    All Essie products are amazing including this. Great quality and really gives salon manicure vibes.
  24. Great for the price


    This product definitely makes my nail polish last a little bit longer!
    It is not much different comparing to the high end gel polish products which I have used, so it is worth it in consideration of the price.
  25. Shiny


    A lovely shiny top coat, last a few days though not 2 weeks
  26. A good at-home-manicure product


    I've never had this product last perfectly for more than 3 days, so I don't think it lives up to it's claims in that way. However, it is a beautiful, think, shiny formula that goes on easily and locks in your nail colour. For the first few days it looks just as good as a salon mani, but don't expect the same longevity.
  27. Nail game: strong!


    The Essie gel couture line is perfect for time poor people, and the top coat seals the deal! My nails last upwards of three days completely chip free (I have three young sons so this is a huge achievement!) and it dries super fast. A must have if you’re using this line of polishes!
  28. Alright


    Sometimes it chips which is annoying but otherwise it’s nice and dries quickly.
  29. Okay


    Not the best topcoat
  30. shiny but not long lasting


    I've used this on two different essie couture colours and both chipped within 24 hours. It's nice and shiny, and applies well, but overall I'm not impressed with the gel couture range.
  31. Best at home nails I’ve had


    As soon as top coat dries the nails are hard and withstand daily activities better than other brands. Provides a nice shine yet not think like salon gels. Lasted a week before chipped.
  32. Super glossy


    I love how thick and glossy this topcoat is. Leaves all manicures looking fresh and glossy.
  33. great top coat but a bit pricey


    this top coat makes my polish shiny and "gel looking". however for the price i was a little underwhelmed with how long it lasted - it had chipped after 2 days.
  34. Fantastic product


    I love this top coat. Not only is it affordable, it has such a nice high glossy finish. Most importantly, it does not add a thick layer on top of my nail polish. I would highly recommend this!
  35. High quality


    This gel coat is so great when I need to cover a not so good polish application, it smoothens & blurs mistakes and make it look like I went to a salon to get them done. These are pretty pricey but I really recommend trying these out if you're in the market for a quality polish.
