I will preface this review by disclosing; I am not good at home manicures/pedicures! I tried to duplicate the Shellac manicure I had in the salon. I bought the curing lamp and all the supplies. I applied all the CND products; base coat, polish, and this top coat. I cured and allowed time to dry between layers. When I was done I stayed still for an hour so I wouldn't mess it up. When I finally got off the sofa, my toenails picked up lint off the carpet, and my fingernails did as well. I was able to take a facial wipe and get it off, but then it wasn't as shiny as it had been. It definitely did not look very good. It could be I got it on too thick? It was also extremely difficult to get all the product off when it was time to redo. I also tried to use this top coat with regular polish; reading on the internet that this could be done if you let everything dry completely before applying; making it easier to remove. It again stayed tacky until I used a wipe and washed my hands. Won't use again.
I was super excited to get this cause I'm always looking for a way to get my nails to last alittle longer but sadly it didn't do exactly that. I'm still trying to figure it out though
Hands down (pardon the pun) the best shellac top coat! Durable and long lasting! I even use it over the special top coats like the Pearl! Highly recommend!
