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 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 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 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 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 Not happy about this one I just started buying Essie products and I love the broad spectrum of colors they offer. I decided to buy some of their clear polish so I bought matte about you (which I haven't tried yet), gel setter (only used once) and No chips ahead. This product I only used on my toes over the color virgin snow and I noticed that it left pink streaks on my toes. I decided to purchase another clear polish and started to read the reviews on a few of them and am disappointed in the reviews about this product. I will only use it from now on as a clear polish but not in conjunction with another Essie polish. Purhaps I will try the all in one next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does no dry I love Essie's colored nail polish so I decided to try no chips ahead. I had so much difficulty with it not drying- it took forever! Even when it seemed dry I would wake up in the morning with sheet prints on my nails. I tried many different ways of using it: doing my nails early in the morning, using no chips after the colored polish had dried, I even tried blow drying my nails with a hair dryer set to low cool. Nothing worked! In frustration I googled no chips ahead reviews and found out that many people have had the same problem for a while- Essie you have great products and a great reputation for quality so why has this issue not been resolved?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There isn't a rating low enough to give!!! I not only want my money back I want my time back!!!! I have never in 36 years used a product so awful. My nails stayed tacky forever. It actually kept the Polish from hardening. Tiny bubbles all over, my toes after three hrs were still tacky and ended up smudging. I've used Dollar store top coat that worked better than this. This product doesn't harden. I usually use SecheVite and thought I would give this a try. Who let this product pass the testing phase? I don't get mad usually, I've used so so products. I know quality over cheap, but this product just destroyed my mani/pedi. Do not buy!!!
