Speed Setter Top Coat
Rated 3 out of 5 by Hmh40 from Bring back the old one! I have been using speed setter for a while and have turned on all of my friends to this great life changing top coat. I would use Essie first base, Essie color and then this top coat. My mani would last at a minimum 9 days but sometimes two weeks, depending on the amount of cleaning I’d do! This last time I bought a bottle, it looked different. I thought maybe just a packaging change but something must be different with the actual product. I painted my nails Saturday and by Sunday I had three peel off. Almost the whole color peeled at once. I redid those and the next day two more peeled ! I’m so sad because this was my go to top coat!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rosie D from Surprised at how bat is is I LOVE Essie and have faithfully used Good to Go for years. It couldn’t be beat for me - great consistency, amazing long lasting shine, and quick drying. Honestly I didn’t need to use anything else - except for another Essie product! Something that has crazy shine and dries faster? I def wanted this to work but, it’s just so bad. The brush is wide and jagged which makes it hard to paint neatly near the cuticle. And the formula seems to be off because it leaves streaks and lines in the finish. It’s also dull in comparison to G2G. So disappointed and will never purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AnnaUT from Poor quality I bought this top coat instead of good2go. Next day manicure totally peels off on 2 fingers. Used with usual routine, all essie, base and polish. Check the quality, it harms the brand for sure. Big disappointment and waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vale from I would give it a zero if I could :( I love essie nail polish, but this speed setter is a dissapointment. I bought it because I LOVE the gel setter and I thought the only difference I was going to find was the time I would save... My nail polish chipped hours after I apply this as a top coat. In case you were wondering, yes I used an essie base coat, essie polish and this speed setter. In that order and nothing of this helped. My polish chipped anyways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marigot from favorite top coat This is the result I wanted but didn't quite get when I bought Gel Setter: shiny and hard, very fast drying time, no noticeable shrinking, and effective smoothing of uneven application or layered nail art. I've noticed that while tip wear tends to happen quickly, my polish stays near-perfect for up to a week as long as I don't deliberately peel at the edge (which might not sound like very long, but I'm not super careful with my nails and they do tend to chip much faster than that). I've tried all the popular quick-dry top coats and this is the one I'm most satisfied with so far. My only real complaint is the brush, which I find to be too wide and flat to avoid hitting my cuticles (and I've got astoundingly wide nails, so it might be a bigger problem for people with narrow ones)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Antonietta from Love all Essie but this one! I do my own nails and Essie makes this easy to do! However this product was a mess! With my regular routine manicure last night, woke this morning to cloudy, dull nails. Regularly use gel setter top coat and quick e finisher to complete my manicures. I do love the wide brush, wish Essie would switch to wide brushes on all polished, helps to do a perfect manicure faster! Clarins nail color uses a wide brush and I switch to my favorite Essie polishes. Sorry Essie you missed the nail on this one!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tremoughgirl from Only shiny while it lasts I bought this hoping it would just do what it said, provide a shiny top coat and dry quickly. It did both for the first day and by day 2 (the next morning actually) most of my nails were flaked off at the tips, and some were completely peeled off! For the record I used Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat applied to clean, dry nails first, and have short nails that do not extend beyond the tips of my fingers. I use my hands for normal activity, not more than that. I'm very disappointed with this product which is quite expensive compared to other brands generally available. I won't purchase it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jules0413 from So far so good!! I bought this today to paint my nails before a concert. I am a clutz and need fast drying everything lol. I bought this on a whim and I am pleasantly surprised. The top coat goes on evenly, the brush is wide which I like. It seems to dry, the top layer, fast. Currently sitting on 10 minutes from finish time and the under layer seems to be a bit tacky. Not sure if I'd go wash dishes or fold laundry directly after.
