I have used MANY top coats. Seche Vite, OPI, CND, China Glaze, you name it I've used it. This one is the BEST by far! I can put on a nail polish that I know will chip in less than an hour, but when I put this top coat on it lasts for days. It's a miracle really. Love that it is 3-free also. Essie is just the best!
