Rated 5 out of 5 by from I WAS having trouble with bubbles in my gel-setter This product is fanatic! About halfway through the bottle I started getting bubbles on my nails. I found the best solution for this. Don’t let the brush hit the sides of the bottle on the way out. Just put a big glob on your nail and cover the nail with that and don’t reapply! No bubbles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I have been using this product for almost 2 years now and it is by far the best gel setter I have ever tried. And I have spent a lot of money on other products but nothing compares to your product. Love Love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Application I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Easy to use and dries very quickly! I did this dishes/laundry 30mins after applying and my nails were still perfect. However, it does not last very long. I usually get 3-5 days before it starts to peel off. It’s great for a quick manicure, but they do say it lasts much longer than it actually does. You can get bubbles, but they are barely noticeable. I’m not sure about the stringy half bottle as I haven’t had mine long enough. Other than that its a great product and I would recommend to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs work but good I've been using essie for awhile now. Usually lasts me a week. Which is all I want. This top coat is great BUT it needs to be renovated. I have 3 half bottles now. You can't use the bottom half. Gets to thick and stringy. Literally irritating to use. I just did my nails, and as usual, bubbles. Yes, I did put it on thick because you have no choice. I will unfortunately keep buying bottles even when I have half bottles at home. Please fix this problem. Only top coat that is like getting gels without spending the money. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! I've used this product for a long while and I honestly think it's a game changer. My nails don't chip for a good 1 - 1.5 weeks. I have seen some reviews as to how their nails chip quickly, but this has only happened a few times depending on the colour polish I use. What I like about it particularly is that its quick to dry. A few swipes, and it looks like you just did your nails at the salon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Tried this after reading all the great reviews on this website, a lot of whom had less chipping and longer wear time with this top coat. In my experience, the wear time without chipping was not improved when I used this product.I will say my nails were shiny when I used this product.Also the product becomes unusable in a few months.(PS, this was bought when it was a newer product, and there were not many reviews on this page)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came right off Applied base coat, 2 layers of essie colour allowed to completely dry and then 2 layers of gel setter top coat...didn't even make it the morning before my nails were chipping. Very disappointing product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works After 30 years of having acrylic nails I was getting really fed up with poor service from the manicurists, like chipping and breaking a few days after my fill. I thought that by the 21st century there must be better products available to the public. I'd seen the Essie gel in the shops so went online to read the reviews. Seemed OK so I gave it a try. That was 10 months ago. I now have beautiful nails. And no chips or breaks. Once a week I do my nails. I remove the gel and polish easily with extra strength polish remover. First a coat of Essie Grow Faster base. Let it dry. Then my Essie polish. Maybe 2 coats. And finally a coat of gel setter. If I've been doing housework in the week I may need to touch up the gel. But that's it. Once a week for beautiful nails.
