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 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is horrible. Unfortunately, I bought this at Shoppers without looking at the reviews. I can verify 100% that all of the reviews about this product are accurate. The topcoat produces bubbles at the top of the polish. It takes forever to dry (4 hours+ in my case). But the worst thing is, I have 4 chips out of 5 nails on my left hand before 24 hours have passed! I exchanged it for "Good to Go" today. Advice: NEVER BUY THIS. It is a waste of money.
