Wanted to love
Cannot live withoutI 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.
recommendFast 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.
shinythis leaves my nails nice and shiny really nice way to top off your at home mani
Amazing productverified purchaserThis top coat leaves your mani so shiny like a gel one! I highly recommend
Wanted to loveI 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
Nice and shinyGreat top coat - leaves nails nice and shiny and dries quick.
Really nice to put onLovely shine and was really nice and easy to put on. The bottle is actually bigger than I expected! Slightly bigger than their coloured nail polish products, which makes sense. My nails last 8 days using this with other essie nail polish products.
Best so farverified purchaserThis 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.
High shine, no shrinkageGreat high shine top coat with no shrinkage, however the top coat does begin to chip around day 5 for me.
Best top coatThis is one of the best top coats I’ve used. It makes the nail polish look smoother and shinier and lasts longer.
Just okayeasy to apply and dries down decently but does tend to chip within a week.
Can't go wrong- excellentThis is a great top coat, leaves a nice shine and polish lasts for days! The price is great too
Great top coatThis 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.
Nice shinePut this over my normal Essie polish and it’s stayed glossy for the last 5 days so will continue to use this
Not to impressedI 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.
Ok topcoat- not the best. Just averageI 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.
Great!easy to apply, quick drying and adds great shine! Everything you need in a top coat. Love the bottle too!
Classy chicTried after reading many rave reviews. No disappointments here.
love itThe 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.
ExcellentI great top coat that has a great brush. Easy to apply and dries well, and makes your manicure both shiny and last longer.
AmazingAll Essie products are amazing including this. Great quality and really gives salon manicure vibes.
Great for the priceThis 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.
ShinyA lovely shiny top coat, last a few days though not 2 weeks
A good at-home-manicure productI'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.
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!
AlrightSometimes it chips which is annoying but otherwise it’s nice and dries quickly.
OkayNot the best topcoat
shiny but not long lastingI'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.
Best at home nails I’ve hadAs 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.
Super glossyI love how thick and glossy this topcoat is. Leaves all manicures looking fresh and glossy.
great top coat but a bit priceythis 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.
Fantastic productI 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!
High qualityThis 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.
