Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't Recommend - It Bubbles I'm surprised to be the first person to review this because I imagine everyone is having bad results. My roommate and I both have this and have the same problem - it bubbles and takes forever to dry...even when you use the top coat hours after the color has dried. Really surprising coming from Essie.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but never actually dries Got this top coat a few weeks back hoping to extend the wear of my polish. I loved it the first try because it didn't chip but the more I used it the less I loved it. Hours after I applied the top coat, it still wasn't dry and I had to be careful not to mess anything up. The next day it still really wasn't dry either, I could still press down on a nail with a finger and the finger print would be there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money All these one star reviews are accurate. Horrible bubbles, never dries completely so when you go to bed you wake up with hair and sheet marks on your nails, chips within a couple days. I am really disappointed because I love Essie's colored polishes. I wish I kept the receipt so I could return this topcoat, but I never expected such a bad product from Essie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing!!!! I absolutely love Essie!!!! I love the Good to Go top coat it is my favorite, but I ran out recently and ran down to my local store, but they were out so I decided to give No Chips Ahead a chance. I am so disappointed! The first time I used it, it bubbled and took forever to dry! I thought maybe it was my fault because I hadn't waited long enough, but I gave it a few more chances and it was horrible every time! I even tried giving it about 6 hours to dry before I went to bed and I still woke up with terrible smudges!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed. I wish I had kept the receipt for this product so I could have returned it. Like everyone else has mentioned, it doesn't dry, it smudges, etc. Not happy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money Don't buy this!!! I got this 2 months ago and was very excited to try it out. The top coat is very thin and almost watery, yet is has a very strong smell. My nails were very shiny after applying this, but they would not dry, even after I waited a good 2 hours without touching anything. When I went to bed 5 hours later, I woke up with smear marks on 4 finders. Then, my nails chipped just 2 days later and cracks began to appear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed... Before buying this I was always saying that Essie were great, dry rapidly, didn't chips and were just great! But... not this time the product doesn't dry.. even after waiting more than 45 mins...and 2 days after the Essie colour chips.
