Opi Rapidry Top Coat Review.

OPI Rapidry Top Coat - £13

Mum and dad went on holiday (unfair!), but mum did buy me a present in the airport (yay!). It was the OPI Rapidry Top Coat, I had wanted a quick dry top coat for ages because painting my nails always seems to be an impossible mission! So I was very pleased when she bought this home, I had heard some mixed reviews.. but in my opinion it is soooooo good!

When painting my nails I paint them to how I like them to look (usually two coats), wait for 30 seconds - 1 minute and then paint the rapidry nail polish over the top.. being how unlucky I am when painting my nails, each time using this I have still not touched my nails without waiting for as long as I can. But it is safe to say, it really does make them dry a lot quicker, gives them a great shine, makes the nail varnish last a lot longer, and leaves the nails feeling a lot stronger and harder - no bending of nails here!

I love the design of the bottles and it should definitely last a while since it is a big bottle (15ml) :) Mum got mine for about £6 from the airport - BARGAIN, but it usually costs around £13 (depending on where you get it).

So yes, I think I'd give this 4.5 out of 5 (just because this is the first drying top coat I've used.. I want to leave room for improvement ;)), but also buying it from a usual shop and not an airport may be seen as quite expensive; however it is great quality. I definitely recommend it to those who seem to always smudge their nail polish like me!

Thanks for reading, please feel free to share an good drying top coats if you know any that are really good - or any to stay away from :)
