Which Nails Inc Top Coat is Better?
I am trying to decide which Nails Inc top coat is better, this product or the Kensington Caviar Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat. Do either have any specific pros or cons? Your responses are appreciated.

on 45 Second Top Coat with Kensington Caviar
This one is better. I tried the Gel version four different times, and there were cracks in my polish within 2 hours. The gloss was okay, but the gloss with this version is equal if not better. Plus, this one dries faster. I returned my Gel version, and bought this one instead.
I must say that now is not the time to buy the Kensington GEL type because it has just not been perfected yet. I love the tried and true traditional one. I feel the Gel one was a bit too gloppy. They both work but I feel that the pinkish one is better. Just sayin' :)

It seems that you are getting answers from those of us that have used only Kensington Caviar! That would tell me that it is an incredible product for sure and that we LOVE the Caviar Topcoat and will not switch to the other. I too, have only used the Kensington Caviar Top Coat and it is my all time favorite top coat. I found it for the first time in June, 2013 at the Sephora Store on Hollywood Blvd and am just now running out. I have to order from Sephora as it is not sold in any store, even in the surrounding areas where I live. This will be my second bottle and I cannot wait to get it in!!
What scares me about the gel top coat is that I am afraid it may look or even be too thick on my nails and that is something I do not want.
Hope we have helped!

I haven't personally used the plumping version, but I have read quite a few reviews about it, and most agree that the original version is better. I have used the original Top Coat and it is my personal favorite. Hope that helps!

This one. The gel effect one is way shinier (which I LOVED), but cracked by the 2nd or 3rd day.

I haven't tried the Gel Effect one but I know the Caviar top coat is amazing and it gives a gel-ish salon made effect and make your polish last longer.

You cannot go wrong with the kensington caviar top coat. Great shine and dries fast. If you have natural nails and wear them a little longer, try layering this top coat over another thicker top coat (like OPI) for longer lasting chip resistance! I have found when my nails grow out a smidge, this will chip if used alone over regualr polish.

I have only used the Caviar top coat. I use the base coat as well. By themselves, they are very pretty and natural. I have purchased nail polish from Nails Inc. as well, Great product! I hope this helps!
