Wallet-Friendly Wednesdays: Essie To Dry For Top Coat

I absolutely adore getting manicures. Really, who doesn't love sitting back and watching someone buff, scrub and polish their nails to perfection? But sometimes I just don't have the time to sit around and wait 45 minutes for my nails to dry completely ... or I'm in a rush and want to just dash on a quick coat of polish myself before I leave the house. That's where Essie To Dry For Top Coat comes in.

Perfect for Wallet-Friendly Wednesdays with its friendly $8 price tag, this clear gloss slicks over nails to dry them quickly and easily. The quick-drying ingredients within the gloss make nails super-shiny, while the protective elements make it do double-duty as a topcoat.

I decided to test this out for myself over the weekend. So after I brushed on two coats of Hard Candy's Stop, I followed with some strokes of To Dry For. Literally within about five minutes, my nails were completely dry! And we're not talking the "well, they're sort of dry, but I should still move around gingerly and not reach into my purse or wallet for anything just yet" kind of dry. They were as dry as if I'd never put polish on them in the first place! The shine factor was also considerable -- while the polish itself was pretty shiny, this gloss took the sheen to a whole new level.

So is it worth it? We all need a topcoat for our polish, so why not have one that dries quickly?
