Essie Nail Colour Gel.Setter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 362.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm never using gel with a light again! After over a year of gel manicures, my nails suffered from peeling and breaking. I gave them a month with just repair polish and they finally healed, but I wanted the look and durability of the gel polish. When I heard about Essie gel.setter, I knew I had to get my hands on it. Essie never disappoints, and I had high hopes for this product. I'm still not disappointed. I applied Essie Fill the Gap and waited for that to dry. While it dries quickly, it was almost an hour before I applied my color (I was busy cleaning, cooking and caring for my one year old). I put on two coats of color, waiting about five or so minutes between coats. After my polish dried (I did the tapping of my two thumbs together test to see if they stuck together). I applied the gel.setter. A couple things about application. Use a thin coat. It doesn't need to be super thick in order to work, and actually, thinner is better as it dries faster When applying gel polish, I learned I had to "cap" my nail which means you have to run the brush along the free edge of your nail to apply the gel product. This creates a nice seal so that the polish doesn't chip as easily. I did the same with this and I think that helped a lot. If you happen to knick your color coat, when you apply the gel.setter, it actually smooths it out! (bonus!!) I got almost two weeks out of my manicure which is exactly what I would have gotten from a salon manicure or one I did myself. Here are the pictures- day 1 and day 9. I'm kicking myself for not taking pictures before I took my polish off. There was chipping on my index, middle and thumb, but that didn't happen till day 11. By day 9, the luster had vanished, but I didn't reapply gel.setter at all after the first day, so I'm not too surprised about that. Overall, I'm thrilled with gel.setter. My nail polish didn't chip till day 11 but even better, my actual nails didn't chip AT ALL which always happens once the polish chips away.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short self life This top coat allows the polish under it to dry in record speeds and it provides lasting shine. However, after about a month of regular use, the top coat has become a nightmare to work with, and tends to pull strings like drying hot glue and has gotten considerably thicker in consistency...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I purchased this product 5 days ago, it was very hard to find. Now I know why, Its long lasting, great shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Day 4 still perfect. Usually an at home mani lasts about 2 days for me before it starts chipping. So far I am on day 4 and they still look perfect. Here's to hoping that this holds up even longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff After looking all over for Gel Setter, I finally found it in a combo kit with Watermelon. Ended up getting 2 deals instead of 1. First of all the top coat works like a charm, it's lasted at least a week for me each time. Secondly, I found a new favorite color. I usually gravitate toward the very pales or the very dark shades. On a whim I tried Watermelon, absolutely loved it. Along the way I'm getting some good hints about using the top coat. Hint 1. Give your color some time to dry before applyng the top coat. Hint 2. Do a wrap around on the tips of your nails to avoid chipping. Bottom line is I'm avoiding the time, expense, and potential damage to my nails and getting the high shine and long wear by doing my own manicures, Way to go!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just "meh" so far I'm not so impressed yet... This is the start of day 5 of Gelsetter. These cracks have slowly been appearing for the past 2 days. This shine is still good, but not as long lasting as I'd expect. I will give it another shot, maybe applying another coat a day or two after the first. But first impression is "meh". The one pro is that I didn't experience any shrinkage.
