Not Good Enough :/
I bought this product because I was badly in need of one, and I was also on the hunt for good top coats (will help my mani last and is high shine). I was convinced this was a good top coat based on the reviews, so I bought it and tried. But unfortunately I am disappointed. I will make 3 points why I did not like this product. (1) It's glossy coat did not last very long. Upon application and as it dried it was very glossy and shiny, but after 2.5 days, the shine has dulled out. I had to reapply the top coat to keep the shine. (2) This top coat also "shrinks" (you can look up "top coat shrinkage" to get a better idea of what this looks like). I can see the top coat from where I started to apply it. Meaning, you could see the difference of layer of the the top coat from the colored polish. It makes my mani very messy and undone. I have to make an extra effort to push the brush applicator closer to my cuticles, risking flooding my cuticles. (3) Lastly, when I'm applying the top coat on my second hand I notice that the polish starts to become "stringy", when I pull the applicator from the bottle there is this string created from the bottle to the brush, so I have to close the bottle and shake it up again to use it with better consistency. In conclusion, it's not a bad top coat. I just think there can be some things that can still be improved. Although I might not buy it again because I have found a top coat that performs better and is a lot less costly.
