If you’re anything like us, you have better things to do than sit around waiting for your nails to dry. Save time with this top and base coat duo from polish genius Deborah Lippmann. Fast Girls Base Coat creates an ideal surface for polish application, while Addicted to Speed Top Coat dries almost instantly to a hard, glossy finish. Keep them together in the bonus glitter pouch (which also happens to be perfect for storing Birchbox samples). You’ll be out the door with time to spare—and a perfect mani to boot.
The sparkly little bag is really fun, but not really usable while polishing. The base coat drys really quickly and goes on easily. I'm not a fan of the top coat. This is just a little bottle, and it has already gotten really thick. So much that I have been trying to add acetone to thin it out because it won't come out.3
I like to change out nails often and I don't have time for chipping to repaint nor drying with a life full of 4 boys, a husband and college. So I thought I'd give this a try. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! The base coat is nice and thin but a bit gritty to give awesome adhesion to any color of any brand. I've used drugstore brand to another Lippmann color and they all hold up amazing. Even my hardest-to-dry colors are nearly perfect with the top coat which stays wet just long enough to paint a whole nail, but dries within a minute-2 minutes where I can walk out the door less than 5 minutes after application.
The days of clearing an entire night to wait on base coat, color coat, decorative coat and top coat to dry (and STILL hoping it doesn't smudge) are over. The top coat even holds small gems in place amazingly. It's super hard. I don't use large gems however so I can't speak on those, but flat stickers and tiny gems? Just awesome.
This stuff is super easy to apply though I am not a fan of the brush for the base coat - it is a bit stiff. The base coat helps your color to glide on and seems to help it dry faster. The top coat makes your nails shine while drying super fast.
These are my new go to duo for a base and top coat!
The top coat in this set is fantastic! Quick drying and is as hard as nails. For once I didn't get smudges or nicks in my polish. I highly recommend this set!5
This set is a great way to extend the life of a mani/pedi. Quality, long-lasting product. Even put the topcoat on over a salon pedicure and really made it last. Only issue for me is that the bottles are small and identical, so hard for me to tell the difference between base coat and top coat (even with my glasses if the light is low!). The glitter bag is so precious that my daughter immediately claimed it for a doll suitcase. :-)4
Its my fault for not reading the description very well, but just be aware these are small. I love the DL base and top coat, but the glitter case is pretty useless. It sheds glitter like no ones business. And the size is pretty impractical. Ive racked my brain as to what I could use the case for and have yet to come up with a creative solution.
If you want to sample the DL base and top coat this is the perfect way to try them.
I've barely touched the top coat, but I use the top coat a ton and get so many compliments on my nails because of it! People are constantly assuming I got a manicure whenever I use this top coat. It makes my nails look shiny and smooth and really professionally done, not to mention making them last longer. Highly recommend it.5
I love these two products. The base coat works fantastically and so does the topcoat. I've never had such great results before. They are a must-have for an at-home manicure.5
I bought this for my sister, who I will lovingly refer to as a nail polish junkie (no offense to actual junkies). Anyway, she loved it. Loved it. The glitter comes off the bag, making it a bit messy, but the polishes are great.4
I am a hug fan of Deborah Lippmann. I probably own 20+ of her nail polish. I bought this small kit as a gift for my roommate. It was perfect because you can use this base and top coat with any type of nail polish and it makes it last FOREVER! The case it comes in is SO cute! I have bought this set again for another friend because my roommate loved it so much!5
