How are you all doing? Hopefully enjoying Summer as much as we are here in BC. We are in the middle of a heat wave and are busy finding ways to keep cool!
Gel Setter is a new top coat from Essie that boasts the long-lasting, rock-hard shine of a gel, without the UV light. It has a new technology featuring acrylates and copolymer that provides a thick coating with intense shine and anti-chip properties.
I added one thick coat of Gel Setter over top of Essie Strut Your Stuff. It was dry to the touch in less than a minute! Of course I was still careful for about half an hour after applying, but I didn't have any smudges.
I wore a mani with this on last week for 6 days! I had a bit of tipwear after a few days and one small chip, but other than that my mani still looked great! One thing I loved about it was I didn't get any cracks on the side of my nails that I sometimes get with other top coats.
Essie Gel Setter will be available at drugstores across Canada as of July 1st 2015.
