Rated 1 out of 5 by from takes more than a day to dry This topcoat takes to long to dry and totally ruins my nail polish. It doesn't do what it claim it's supposed to do. My manicure cracked after two days of applying the topcoat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't dry after 6+ hours I'm worn out after spending a lot of money on fast-dry top coats only to have them completely peel off in a couple days [or less], so back to the longer dry time, thought this would be a perfect fit. I love Essie nail products, but this one just doesn't work. I'm glad to see it's not just me, as other commenters have stated the same thing. After 2 hours of dry time then ALL NIGHT I have lines and marks from the bed sheets across every nail, and it smeared off after it got hot in the shower. After almost 9 hours it should have been set. Nope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top coat is terrible I️ bought this thinking it would be the same quality of the nail polish but I️ let it dry for two hours before touching anything and I️ have imprints from my sheets and pillow case today at work. So embarrassing as I️ work in the fashion industry. Wish I️ could return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t thoroughly dry I frequently do at-home manicures and chose to use this topcoat instead of my gel-setter (because it’s so thick!!). I applied the color in thin coats and allowed a long time to dry between and before putting on top coat. It’s been 24 hours now and my nails are still ‘gummy’ enough to press scratches&dents into the polish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Polishes Great, Top Coat Horrible & Smears I always loved Essie nail polish because it is more durable then most brands, so that made me think their top coat would be great too. I was wrong. Every time I tried it over well dried polish, it smeared it right off. Very disappointing and I lost money because of trusting the brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bubbles & takes over 12 hours to dry. I bought the base coat and the no chips ahead top coat since my Seche Vite started turning yellow after a couple days of wear and hoped to find a good replacement. I take my time painting my nails (while I work on the computer) allowing each coat to dry thoroughly. Applying this top coat, it seemed to re-wet all of the layers underneath it, allowing them to smudge, it bubbled a lot, and even painting my nails before noon, going to bed and waking up the next morning, I would find texture from my bedding in my nail polish. I've tried using all essie products with it, thinking that might matter, but it doesn't seem to work with any of my other nail products. I don't have these problems with the Seche Vite or Sally Hansen top coats that I own. This is very frustrating, because I love other Essie nail products and I spend a couple hours painting my nails carefully & making sure they are dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy I bought this because my "good to go" was running out. It doesn't dry properly. Even when it was no longer tacky, I kept on getting imprints and nicks - including from my sheets 5-6 hours after I applied the top coat. I have to re-do my nails and I don't recommend buying this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Dry Top-Coat I've tried the Essie "No Chips Ahead" several times now. I really wanted to give it a fair try as I love Essie products. Unfortunetly this product never dries fully. After an hour it was still not dry. I've tried using less, I've tried leaving an hour in between the colour and top coat thinking that would help, I've not been able to get this to work. I'd like to go back to the "Good to Go" top-coat but my drug store doesn't carry it anymore. :(
