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.
