3 Best Top Coats to Make Your Manicure Last


If you want your manicure to last, then you need the best top coats available. A good top coat seals in the nail polish color and give your nails a finishing touch, whether that’s shiny or matte. It also prevents your polish from chipping, especially if you reapply it every couple of days. Here are three top coats we love.

Faby Top Coat Fast Dry ($24)

We were first introduced to this nail polish company at CosmoProf this year. A representative handed us a red polish along with this top coat and told us that they’ll speak for themselves. We tested them out and sure enough, our manicures held up longer than they usually do. This one dries quickly and leaves a super glossy finish.

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat ($10)

This one has been a beauty industry favorite for years, and it’s well-deserved. It’s super glossy and dries quickly. Some claim that it makes their manicures last almost as well as gel polish.

Caption Nails Glossy Top Coat ($12)

Another CosmoProf find, this nail polish company promises the durability of gel polish without having to deal with the soak off process. The secret is the LAC Q3 technology which helps the polish dry three times faster and last three times longer than your average nail polish.
