WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT

This product was pretty good. It did dry my nail much faster than just using a regular top coat and I really like the dropper idea. It makes it extremely easy to apply, which I love. Yes they are oily, but it’s an oil dropper formula so I was expecting it. Your fingers will get coated with the stuff but it’s easy to wash off with just water. I first applied the colour polish and waiting for around a minute before applying the drops to it. The drop idea is probably what I like most about this product because it does’t required a brush, which can something ruin the polish if it’s not dry enough yet.

Now does the product actually do its job in drying my nails within a few minutes? I wouldn’t say that it’s as fast as my Seche Vite top coat, which is still my HG, but it’s faster than the Revlon one. I would say my nails were completely dried within 20 minutes. For this reason, I don’t love this product but I like it. If this product had the same formula as the Seche Vite one, it would now be my HG because of the dropper applicator. But this topcoat is quite affordable. The retail price is $8.95, which is much cheaper than the Seche Vite one because it’s not available in chain drugstores. So if you are looking for something that’s easier to use and more affordable than the Seche Vite one, I would recommend this. (Available in April 2013)
