Prefer this over China Glaze
Although I love China Glaze (its my fave brand of nail polish), this is by far my favorite top coat. It helps the manicure last an extremely long time, pretty much until I’m good and ready to change the polish.
All Nail Enamels, perhaps, NOT alike?
I am delighted with this top coat! My nails, at least ten of them, have worn paint non-stop since I was 12 years old. In other words, from the grand ole heights of 67.5, I am one know-it-all who can be trusted! This topcoat is special. One coat of it atop 2 coats of OPI color last longer than they used to; they look deeper, too. The OPI color is not new. The Nicole top coat is.
I never really use top coats so I’m not sure how WELL they’re supposed to work. I used this on top of 2 layers of OPI’s “From Ears to Tail” and the other reviews were right– it DID take a long time to wait. Not several hours like others insinuated but around 15 mins, which is really long for me. Anyway, I had it on for 2-3 days and it didn’t chip! I was very impressed. It only did when I was doing dishes at the bakery I work at and I had my hands soaked in water and bubbles for a couple hours. I wasn’t upset, I was surprised it only chipped twice while I was doing dishes! I’m using it again on OPI’s Cajun Shrimp. I think it may have something to do with the colored nail polish brand, I’m used to using the cheap ones. Either way, long story short, I like this top coat regardless of the 15 minutes it takes to dry and will continue to use it.
I like Nicole by Opi, as it does not contain some of the harsh chemicals used in other products. I have been using it for several years and I am quite happy with it.
Stick to OPI
This stuff is a weak formula. I bought out of desperation, stick to OPI original formula, it does nothing to keep your nails from chipping. Yuck.
Awesome Top Coat!
I’m very picky about top coats, and this one is great. My nail polish stays on so much longer without chipping.
It is important to me that this is a cruelty free product, not tested on animals. It goes on easily and is durable.
