Essie Gel Setter Top Coat


Hiya Dolls!

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.


  1. Oooh, I love the shine. Any word as to when it might be available in the US? I currently use Sally Hanson Mega Shine and I love the general wear and shine, but it does often crack on the sides like you mentioned. Thanks!

  2. Nice review on this top coat!

  3. I hope this is available in the states! I think I need this top coat in my life!!
