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 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 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 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 5 out of 5 by from Love this it really works! I am a swimmer and I am always looking for a top coat that is chip resistant. I am in the pool 4 x a week, workouts are 90 mins, and we swim on average 3 thousand meters every workout. I use grow stronger base coat, 2 coats of any essie nail color, then no chips ahead top coat. My manicure lasts at least 5 days with no chips! AND that is with being in the water, my nails hitting the walls on my finishes and all the normal everyday wear and tear( like washing dishes, cooking house cleaning). You have to make sure you use a proper base coat as well as top coat otherwise it will not work. I tried using the cheaper brands of nail polish even with their base and top coats. It did not even last one swim workout! Essie is by the best nail polish out there right now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fail Purchase I am very happy to have read the other reviews because I started to doubt myself. I bought the top coat one month ago and tried to use it in different combinations and at different day times but it never dried! Even when I applied it in the morning and had a shower three hours later, it was a mess. Normally, i am fan of Essie products but this top coat is a really bad production and the price is definitely not worth it!
