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.

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!

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.

Very Good

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.

Great top coat

Nice top coat. It goes on smooth and not to thick. It dries quickly and looks very nice. I really like it.

Best I've found

Those of us that are addicted to nail products and prefer to do them ourselves know the importance of a great top coat for a lasting manicure. I adore this product! I was surprised with how nicely in applies. Its not too thin and not too thick, but just right for providing a nice shine but protection to the color underneath. I have found I chip much less (if at all) since I started using this product. I will be getting 2 more bottles with my next purchase - one, to replace the almost empty bottle at home and two, to have a bottle at work. It's always a good idea to have prepackaged nail polish remover packs and a bottle of clear nail polish. Hope this review helps.

Best I've used

I'm very impressed with this top coat. I before my polish was fully dry and it was easy to apply and dried very quickly. It has a beautiful shine that lasts. I'm going on 5 days without a single chip and my mani/pedi looks like it was just done this morning. Love!

Not that amazing, but fast drying!

This product is fairly fast to set, but it didn't last that long on my nails--espeically on the ends of the nail, you could see it had chipped off quite a bit only after a day and a half.
