Question
Does this or the old black lid version bubble on your nails?
My old bottle that has the black lid is producing tiny bubbles in a terrible way on my nails. I'm just curious is anyone else had this trouble with the old black lid version and isn't having it now with the new white lid version? I love the long lasting wear, but can't handle this ugly bubbles.

it dries out a bit after a few uses. Add a few drops of nail polish remover, mix it up and you should be good for a few more manicures!!

If you apply a little bit more pressure you won't have the "bubbles" .

I did get some bubbles with this but I did something I've never before; I used two coats of top coat. I think that is why I got bubbles and they were mostly on the edge of my nails.

I get a lot of those bubbles in my nails when I use nail polish in general and I looked up why it does that and it wad because I had my fan on and that i took a shower after painting my nails or it could also be any cold air coming in. It works pretty well just changing the technique. I'm not sure if that helped

For those who have tried this, how does it compare with the seche vite top coat?

No comparison. This product is far better based on my experience. My hands are in water quite a bit and I don't protect them with "rough" work. This top coat is the best I have used in years.

The Deborah lippmann one doesn't dry as fast. You don't have shrinkage issues with the "DL" one. The shine with the"DL" is amazing, it shines 2 times more than the seche vite. The only issue with the "DL" is that it can bubble if you don't apply enough pressure, but once you figure out your technique, no more problems!

I think that it's far superior to Seche Vite. It dries in about the same time and definitely protects my nails better with a gel manicure look. Also, there's no nail polish shrinkage (that's a problem I've had with Seche Vite).

Pull the useless square cap off...then twist the "real" top.

Just pull the white cap off. Straight off, no twisting. Inside is the brush bit.
