I was not impressed with this item nor the friend I gave I to. Does not last any longer than other brands.

I purchased this duo awhile ago and recently reordered. This product has saved me a fortune on gel manicures. Ladies if you are unable to polish yourself, go to your manicurist for your mani/pedi...take this with you to use as top coat or.come home and put this top coat on yourself. You can use with any polish and you will be good at least a week. I am in the medical field and love this. My only negative is the skinny tall bottle doesn't play nice on all surfaces. Please make a shorter, chubbier bottle so I don't have to worry about it toppling over. Great stuff Julep. Thx.

The only good thing about this product is it dries fast and has a shine. I followed the directions it looks nice the first day BUT the next day I happen to look at my hand and notice the whole Polish was off one of my nails. That started a domino effect later that day the whole Polish came off another one I'm at work so I can't do anything about it. Do Not waste your money I would return it back BUT why pay for s&h it's not worth it! That's more money im paying for a product that does not work!

I applied this product as instructed. It dried fast and left a shiny finish, which was great. But lasted one day, then started peeling off in large pieces. By the end of the second day, it was completely off all nails. Would never waste time or money on this product again. I can get better for a lot less at my local cosmetics dept.

I have used this alone, over polish and over shellac. It peels off within just a few hours no matter how it's used. I think Shawn goes a little overboard in her enthusiastic sales pitch. I would have returned it but had misplaced the invoice. Run from this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by QShopper4vr Wow! This Stuff Really Works!
If you're anything like me, you just hate sitting around waiting for nails to dry. Hence, nails don't get done as often and you end up with horrible looking nails most of the time. I was skeptical when I saw product demonstrated on TV but thought I'd take a chance anyway. After all, I had nothing to lose since I could return it. Well, I WON'T. Julep dried in the 5 minutes it is supposed to. Good thing because my cell phone was in my pocket and I was expecting an important call. Don't Don't Don't hesitate to purchase this product. It's wonderful !!
Rated 5 out of 5 by eve_n_boston Product works like a charm!!
I have seen poor reviews concerning this product and for the life of me, I can't figure it out. This top coat dries to a gel-like finish without the hassle. I read the instructions on the box, it is tiny print so maybe people didn't bother to read it, or folks assume the product works like any other top coat and just used it as they are used to doing. Perhaps that is where the issues for them began.
BUT: I am here to rave about it!
Some said that it ruined the color underneath it. I did not find that to be true. I used Julep color for my first application, let it dry a bit and then added the top coat. I used a light bulb for 2 minutes to "set" the topcoat and it looked as if I walked out of a salon. In 5 minutes it was bone hard dry and gorgeous!
Next, I saw that someone said that it was not good for any other products except Julep's so, to test that I then used Sally Hansen's colors and another time OPI color. Each time I used the Julep top coat (just a thin layer, not too thick) and then held my hand under the light bulb over my vanity where I apply makeup, polish, etc. for 2 minutes. I then waited approximately 5 minutes before doing anything that would nick the polish and voila!
Perfect salon looking gel-like nails after only 5 minutes. I even finished folding laundry that was waiting for me and my nails remained perfect! I did not smudge a fingertip! This stuff has me as a convert! Oh, forgot to mention the other bonus - you get the gel salon like finish and don't have to chisel it off when you want to change your nail color. It comes off with regular polish remover. That is a major WIN!
Love it and will continue to purchase it!
