Need tips on applying top coat
I have this. I have no problem applying the foil. However, both times I've applied top coat,, the holographic/mirror finish has dulled and dissolved a bit. The effect is totally lost. Are there any tips on top coat application? I've tried it with no topcoat, but the foils just rinse off when I wash my hands. Thank you!

I've had the same problem that you're having. If you use a quick drying top coat I've heard that this causes the foil to lose its luster quite a bit. Maybe try with a non-quick drying top coat (as annoying as it is).

The gray Polish isn't the top coat it is the bottom coat you need to put on a clear coat for the top coat.
Not sure which top coat you are using, but I use Seche Vite and I don't have a problem with the foil looking dull. I also sometimes use Gelous which also adds a clear gel like coating and then I add the Seche Vite over it. Keeping everything shiny. Hope this helps. :)

try not to put too much pressure as you apply the top coat as the dragging over the foil is what smears the color.
