Rated 5 out of 5 by from TBTC (The Best Top Coat)! I don't use gel polish at all, and I easily get my manicures to last 7-14 days (if I want) with Instant Gel Effect Top Coat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it I painted my nails and used it as a top coat. Does not last a whole day without chipping or pealing off. Was disappointed in this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WAS HOPING FOR MORE I bought this top coat to make my mani last for a wedding weekend away. I was very disappointed when it started to chip by the end of day 2. I would have had more wear from a regular good quality top coat, like OPI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like GEL!!! I bought this instance gel effect top coat just this past Sunday and when they say it's like's actually better than gel!!! I am amazed by how strong, high shine/gloss and how fast it dries w/o UV (but b/c I was skeptical I did use the UV light on my right but not on my left and it still gave me exactly the same effect). No chips, no cracks or peeling. I am so in love with this product. It's AWESOME!!! The smell is a wee bit strong so use a fan or apply in well ventilated room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! Love it! I've been using Seche Vite for years and thought that it was as good as it gets. But this Vive is even better. It drys fast like Vite, but with no smell. It drys as fast. But it looks very much like a salon gel manicure. I normally don't usually wear dark polish because when it chips, or the poilsh wear off the nail tips it looks unsightly. But the Vive seems to wear much better. Right now I'm wearing black for the second day, and it looks good as new. I.LOVE.THIS.STUFF!

It met my expectations and surpassed them! Shine and long lasting and trust me I be putting my little hands thru torture sometimes! Will save tons using this product at home. As much as I love my nail tech I luv to save even more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feature! I bought a trial size of this product awhile and used it for the first time five days ago. I am loving this product. My fingernail polish usually chips within 48 hours. With this product, it has last longer than that! I will invest and purchase the full sized bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! This is an excellent top coat. It goes on nicely and dries so fast that your nails will not smudge. It gives shine and last long. Easy to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I cannot say I'm very well versed in the world of nail polish. With nails as flimsy as mine I can't imagine investing that much time into painting them when they are often too short to look like anything but toddler nails. I also have the nasty habit of picking at my nail polish the moment it begins to chip which only worsens the problem of having flimsy nails. I heard the raving reviews about the Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat but had never heard any reviews on the Gel Effect Top Coat until a friend showed me her nail polish, a regular old OPI polish and told me she was on her second week of having that color with absolutely NO chipping in all that time. I was stunned. I never had the patience of will to try gels for their long lasting promise and so infrequently painted my nails that I couldn't be bothered to mess with anything that would really prolong my varnish. However with a promise like that along with me needing a new top coat anyway, I chose to give it a whirl. My first attempt with this top coat and I got an entire week out of it. Which is longer than I can say for any other top coat I've tried. Granted, the moment it chipped from work I removed the rest of them. It dried rather quickly, a lot faster than I anticipated with how thick it goes on the nail for that gel effect. I did learn there is a bit of a method to getting the polish to stay the same thickness on each nail. This is now my go-to for any nail polish that I need to last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dries instantly! Just bought this tonight as I do my own acrylics and am in need of a strong top coat; it delivers!!! I hate doing my acrylics and my nail polish taking forever to dry even with my fan and UV. This stuff puts that all to shame! I think I'm hooked... only bad thing was it was in stores on sale for 7.49 I believe and Sally's sale prices NEVER come up at the register!!!!! I threw my receipt out with the bag ); oh well I'm not mad I spent the money! There is an extra smelly ingredient that smells almost like heavy duty glue, it does say some ingredients are known to the state of CA to cause cancer/birth defects and you can tell something is different with the smell and miracle of this product!!!! Exercise caution and ventilate! Otherwise I'm happy and will buy it again once I run out!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does What It Says!!! This top coat does exactly what it says! Normally my polish starts chipping in 1 day! With this top coat I've had the polish on 6 days with no chipping!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shines Bright!! Took off acrylics yesterday. Went to SBS to get this product 8.99 and 3 bottles of nail paint b2g1Free. Clean and dried nail bed, applied 2 coats of color, No Base, and a decent coat of does as it says and created a Gel Effect that dried flawlessly and quick!!!! I'm sold on this stuff...I can and will, moving toward, only see my nail tech for mani/pedis... I can change my nail color and save that $20+ they charge for Gel! I tried to get a pic but it says the pic is too big :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable I bought this a couple months ago & it works incredible... With this Gel top coat my nails stay fresh & shiny....I change my nail polish once a week & normally by the 3rd day my polish starts chipping.. My nails have not chipped since I starting using the Gel Top Coat... So so HAPPY I bought this... It's so worth the money :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better! I do like the regular Seche Top Coat, however, this one is even better! I use the Seche Base Coat then apply polish and then use this Top Coat. My manicures last so much longer. Depending on how hard I am on them it can make my manicure last 10 days or longer. Love it!!! I have purchased several and given away as gifts I like it so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new fave! Im thrilled with this topcoat. I was using the original Seche topcoat and love it but i find the shine on this new one better. I apply it the same as the other one,,,one thicker coat on my polish and it is fantastic!

Do you really have to wait until the polish is dry to apply this?

Asked by: danakmom
yes, but there is not an extra wait time. Once you put on last coat wait maybe 5 min and then apply

Does it last longer if you use a basecoat is it okay to use it without a basecoat? I want the best results I can get.

Asked by: ABeeZzee
Any manicure lasts longer when using a good base coat. Using a base will also help protect your nails from becoming stained from your nail polish and help prevent yellowing that comes with the long term use of nail polishes, especially darker polishes.  So, IMO always use a base coat before applying ANY nail polish. Your base coat is just as important as your top coat (perhaps even more as a base coat protects your nails, a top coat protects your finished manicure) so make sure your using good quality base and top coats. Hope this helps! ☺

Is there Formaldehyde in the Instant Gel Effect?  Does this work better than the Seche Vivek top coat?  I use the Seche Vive base coat, OPI polish, Seche Vive top coat.... should I use the Gel over the Top coat?
