China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat Review:
I used to LOVE OPI polishes, but the more and more I branch out, the more and more I like other brands... including China Glaze. The thing I dislike most about OPI is the drying time. It takes FOREVER for your nails to dry... and I never have a perfect mani/pedi because after 3 hours I always think they are dry... but they aren't and I end up messing them up some how! I am the type of person that needs my nails to dry FAST. I am always doing something and I can't sit around for hours waiting for my nails to dry. Finally after trying many many top coats I found one that I am liking it alot for the most part! This China glaze top coat makes any nail polish dry in no time! I have tried to over many different brands and I feel like it makes a huge difference! The only downside is the scent. Its VERY strong.... one of the strongest nail polish scents I have ever smelled, so it can get a little overwhelming. But its worth it for the speed! The price is a little spendier than drugstore polishes as well. You can buy China glaze in Sally's beauty supply stores, Ulta or CVS... and you can also find it online as well! One thing you have to remember too when it comes to top coats is that they dry out faster than regular nail polishes usually. So you want to make sure you close the lid tightly, and if you have it for a very long time, it might be time to repurchase a new one! Or you can buy a nail lacquer thinner to mix into the polish every once in a while. The brush is a good medium sized brush.. not too big and not too small which I like because I can use it on my nails and tiny little toe nails. Another recommendation would be to buff your nails first, then apply a base coat. I noticed that when you skip this step your nail polish has a tendency to peel or chip..... but that is usually the case with any polish. I would recommend this Top Coat for sure... but there are just a few things you have to keep in mind when using it for it to work well! I give this product 4 out of 5 stars. The type of people I would recommend this for is those who NEED quick drying polishes.
