Birchbox Breakdown

Just like a sweep of powder keeps your makeup in place and a spritz of hairspray helps an updo last until the end of the party, we count on our top coats to keep our nails in tip-top shape for days. The knockout shine they bring to the table doesn’t hurt, either. This German brand’s rapid-set formula helps us get out the door faster.

How it Works

The quick-dry formula means you can get on with your day in just a few minutes. Because really, who has time to sit around waiting for nail polish to dry? The high-gloss protection dries to a hard surface to keep chips, scratches, and those pesky bed sheet indentations at bay.

How to Use

Apply one to two coats after polishing your nails. When creating nail art designs like polka dots or stripes, avoid smears by allowing the colors to dry completely before adding a top coat.

Love this
Purchased

I decided to take a chance on this top coat. I've never used this product before. I was very happy with this purchase. I stayed on for about 7 days with minimal chipping. I work on a computer all day, so 7 days is quite a bit.

It was worth the risk.

Nice glossy top coat
Purchased

This is a very nice glossy top coat. I also like, very much, the feel and precision of the shape of the cap as I use this porduct!

Shiny Shiny Finish!!
Purchased

This is an excellent top coat and definitely worth the price. It helped my manicure last a week without chipping which is usually impossible since I wash my hands frequently for work. The unique grooves in the top make holding it very easy so it goes on smoothly.

Fantastic polish
Purchased

This polish is a great top coat. Keep the polish underneath shiny, goes on smooth, and dries very fast! When I used this top coat, it kept the polish underneath shiny and looking brand new for almost 2 weeks! I would definitely buy this again!

Quick and easy to apply
Purchased

I love love love painting my own nails. It's a relaxing activity and I get to frequently change colors based on the season, weather, occasion, and mood. However, I hate hate hate waiting for my nails to dry and often ruin them right after they are finished. This top coat is my savior. It is easy to apply and dries super duper quickly. Makes my nails looks super glossy and professional. love it!

Great top coat
Purchased

No much to say about this top coat but it's shiny and great and does the job. I think as far as a basic top coat goes, this one's a winner and it does dry pretty fast to boot.

So far so good!
Purchased

Bought this because I'm trying to find a nice top coat that will not chop and that isn't an "arm & a leg". So far this has done good, and I've noticed it helps dry faster.

I have always been afraid of spending too much on top coat, but I'm glad I did. This is the best top coat that I have used. I really like this product.
