Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat

Revlon Quick Dry Top CoatLately I’ve tried a lot of top coat duds. Today I am happy to share with you a top coat I am absolutely loving!

I decided to try this after several of you mentioned in the comments that this was a favorite.

Revlon Quick Dry is my kind of top coat. It’s a thinner formula that dries quick but not super fast so there are no issues with shrinkage or quick chipping. It dries to a super shiny finish and is 3 free. I mean, what more could a girl ask for?

Of course, if I really want my manicure to go the distance I still opt for my CND Vinylux top coat. However, I use the Revlon Quick Dry top coat as my regular top coat.

A great thing about this top coat is it is available almost everywhere. You can pick up the Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat at Ulta, or even Amazon.

Because I’m loving this top coat so much I wanted to give a bottle away to one of y’all! To enter leave a comment telling me your favorite top coat and fill out the Google Form under the jump.

  1. My favorite top coat right now is the Nutra nail Speed dry 30 second top coat. I grabbed it on a whim and I ended up liking it better than my Sally Hansen Strengthening top coat. It dries super fast but with no shrinkage and it leaves my nails really glossy. Thanks for doing this review, are you thinking of sharing what your duds are? It always helps when we know what works as well as what doesn’t work.

  2. I have used this topcoat and love it. I think it’s 3 free too. Revlon makes so many top coats though, that this one is sometimes hard to find in the mix. for that reason I usually buy Essie’s Good to Go, which is my fave. It’s very fast drying, shiny, 3 free and like the Revlon it’s reasonably priced with no shrinkage or bad smell.

  3. My favorite top coat (and my favorite nail product of all times) is Orly Sec n Dry. Dries undercoats quickly and fills in mistakes. Super hard and shiny finish. My mani used to last a day or so and now I can go 2 weeks. Always willing to try something new, though. War Eagle!

  4. It used to be Seche Vite, but I couldn’t handle the shrinkage! So now it’s Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat (the red bottle), but this was the next one I wanted to try after I run out of my Sally Hansen. Thank you!

    1. I’m a fan too. I need another bottle – mine is pretty thick- but it’s so good to use when I’m playing around with my nail vinyls.

  5. I have been very impressed with NYC In a New York Minute! I favor that one over the others I’ve tried so far. I haven’t tried this one yet though.
