I’m always trying new top coats but my all time favorite for years has been Essie Good to Go!. I go through top coats far too quickly to spend $10 every time I need a new top coat so I don’t splurge on Good to Go! often. And since I’ve found JulieG Jet Set Quick-Dry Top Coat I may never make that splurge again.
When I’m looking at top coats the first thing I look at are the manufacturer claims. The claims for Jet Set are as follows:
Jet Set Quick-Dry Top Coat will have your nails travel-ready in no time with an unbeatable level of protection and shine.
With a description like that I just had to try it!
Jet Set is a thin, quick dry top coat that dries to a super shiny finish. This is not a super quick dry top coat (like Seche Vite or H K Girl) but it definitely accelerates the process. After 5 or 10 minutes I don’t worry about dinging my nails on things. I find the shiny finish of this polish doesn’t dull and my polish wears very well when I use Jet Set.
I’ve been using this top coat on and off since last summer and I always find myself coming back to it. It’s a no fuss top coat that I know will dry quickly and extend the wear of my polish. What more can I ask for?
Oh, I know! All JulieG polishes are cruelty and 3 free. And this lovely top coat retails for a cool $3.99.
The only negative (which is a negative for many top coats) is this gets a bit thick as you get to the end of the bottle. That can be fixed with a few drops of nail polish thinner (I use Orly Nail Lacquer Thinner but any thinner will do).
I will continue to try different top coats because, well, I have a nail polish blog. But, as of now, Jet Set has a permanent spot in my nail arsenal.
You can find Jet Set at Rite Aid stores or the Jesse’s Girl Cosmetics website.
It’s that time of year. The 2014 essie Luxeffects collection has landed. There are 6 polishes included in the display but only 2 new polishes; Summit of Style and Rock at the Top. The others are, Set in Stone (Luxeffects 2011), No Place Like Chrome, Good as Gold, Penny Talk (Mirror Metallics 2012). Essentially what […] Continue reading →
If there is one store I should avoid it is World Market. I mean, it has EVERYTHING I buy too much of. Candles. Wine. Foreign food items. Kitchen products. Glass wear. Soap. Throw pillows. It’s literally the best store ever. But I found myself in World Market the other day and spotted the most perfect […] Continue reading →
Y’all, I am obsessed with this nail polish. The China Glaze All Aboard collection for fall 2014 didn’t immediately impress me. I actually passed on all the polishes for quite a long time. But when I was browsing holiday collection I saw Choo-Choo Choose You from their fall collection and just had to try it. […] Continue reading →
Fantastical. Deborah Lippmann’s Winter 2014 collection is daring, dreamy, and perfectly Deborah Lippmann. It’s so beautifully unique. A chartreuse for winter? Sure, why not! I fell in love with the idea behind this collection after watching this video. Bewitching. Mystical. Mesmerizing. I couldn’t have said it better. It has been so long since I’ve been […] Continue reading →
I find nail polish trends to be fascinating. I did a post on 1920’s nails when The Great Gatsby film came out and enjoyed reading about what was considered in at the time and why. My foray into 1960’s nails didn’t come due to a film but because of Halloween. This year I went as […] Continue reading →
At this point I likely sound like a broken record but Essie Fall In Line is truly one of my favorite releases from Essie in ages. I realize that doesn’t even make much sense; it’s a creme polish. There’s nothing super special about it. I just LOVE color. So, predictably, I was wearing it recently […] Continue reading →
As much as I hate to admit it we’ve reached that time of the year when we have to start thinking about the holidays. This set of 3 polishes from Pacifica Beauty will make a perfect sticking stuffer. The set includes 3 full size polishes; Blushing Bunnies, Red Red Wine and Cinnamon Girl. All 3 […] Continue reading →
Talk about a breath of fresh air! Barielle released 2 collections for fall 2014; Me Couture and Jetsetter. Rain in Spain is from, of course, the Jetsetter collection. I’m so excited about this collection because of all the fun polish names. I adore collections with polishes named after fabulous places. Oh, and the colors are […] Continue reading →
Some days I just REALLY miss Italy. It clouds my judgment and I end up doing silly things. Like binging on margarita pizza and red wine and digging Italian Love Affair out of my Melmer. Italian Love Affair is a very light yet bright pink with an almost frosted finish. This polish was released as […] Continue reading →
