About the same as any regular topcoat

answer 2
It dried very quickly...I would say at least 5-7 mins. But remember your color has to be completely dried before you apply this gel coat. So your total time will depend on how long your color polish takes to dry.

An hour

If you want to be 100% sure, I'd say let it sit 15mins or so. I use drying spray from Sephora also, so that helps. You can run your nails under very cold water after about 5mins of polishing to help set it and speed it along. Hope this helps

answer 5
It varies depending on how thick your coats are. I'd say anywhere between 5-15 minutes just to be safer.

answer 6
If your base coat of polish is 100% dry, I'd say within a few minutes, i bumped mine 5 minutes out and it didn't mess up.

This top coat needs about 8 minutes to dry. Sit still and the results will be well worth the wait.

answer 9
Super fast. I tried it on in the mall and a few minutes later after I walked around it was dry. I was not counting but if I had to guess I would say 5 minutes. My nails are short

answer 10
It is not a quick-dry topcoat, but I didn't find it took super-long. I'd give it a good half-hour to be safe.

answer 11
It took about five minutes to start drying because my nails are natural and very long, but I did try it on my toes and it took about two minutes.

Apply over salon pedicure?
If I want to use this as my top coat with a pedicure, do I need to not have them put the regular topcoat on first and make sure the polish is 100% dry?

answer 1
You may if you are planning to cover your feet. If not, you dont need a second top coat. I find it does make the pedicure last much longer without the chips.

answer 2
Polish absolutely needs to dry or else it wont last long. In my opinion, you might want to give the nail therapist your top coat because layering on usually decreases the durability of a pedicure
answered 2 months, 3 weeks ago
answer 3
you can have them use a fast dry top coat and put this on or have them put on any top coat and put this on later that day or the next day. I've done it both ways and it works well either way.

Use this to replace a top coat. It dries quickly. Give the nails a few minutes before applying, as the texture of this product is a bit heavier.

answer 6
You don't need an additional top coat to this. Nails don't need to be completely dry, just not too wet.
