Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat £8.50 here

What They Say:
Poshé Super-Fast Drying Topcoat is a five-time Allure Editor's Choice winner, which for an independent brand that doesn't advertise is a serious achievement and testament to its effectiveness. This protective top coat has an extremely diverse, loyal following of beauty addicts and celebs, from Kate Beckinsale and Elizabeth Taylor to Jessica Simpson. Poshé stops nails from turning yellow and is even safe for cancer sufferers and those in remission to use as it's free from Formaldehyde & Toluene.

My Opinion:

Five-Time Allure Editors Choice Winner! You've gotta be kidding me! 

I've been using this for a couple of weeks now and feel like it's had a good enough road testing to be able to review. 

Firstly let me tell you I have tried to make this work! I started by using it as intended as a top coat, it chipped almost instantly. 

I tried again paying more attention to the tips of my nails, it still chipped a lot very quickly. 

I then tried sandwiching my nail polish by using it as both a base and top coat, the whole nail colour popped off in one!

There are cheaper and better quality top coats on the market. 

What I will say is that it is indeed super-fast drying but what's the point of a top coat that needs a top coat? 

I've given up trying to make it work, mine has gone in the bin! Don't waste your money on this one.

  1. For being a five time winner it sounds as though it pretty much sucks. I've never heard about that top coat before or seen it in stores here. Most likely we don't carry that brand here in the Caribbean. I rarely ever put a top coat on and if I do it's usually a cheap drugstore brand.

    1. I would say it's the worst top coat I've ever used, no idea how it's a 5 time winner and cult favourite. I'll stick with Sally Hansen! I want to try Seche Vite but the health warnings put me off. X
