I’ve been road-testing this top coat for the past few weeks and really love it. It provides incredible shine and much better durability than any other brand I’ve tried. I wouldn’t compare it’s wear to a gel manicure, exactly, though. It does chip, depending on how hard you are on your hands. That said, I baked a batch of brownies this weekend, went swimming, washed my girls’ hair multiple times and built sandcastles at the beach this weekend—in addition to my usual wear and tear—and my nails still look so shiny.
As with all of Essie’s polishes, this top coat is DBP, toluene and formaldehyde free.
P.S I’m also completely in love with Essie’s new E-nuf is E-nuf for summer toes.
