Today’s review is on Born Pretty’s Odorless Fast Dry Top Coat. Typically when a company says that their polish is odorless, it tends to be water based. I’m still not sure how a water based top coat doesn’t wash off, but it’s one of those mysteries that I’m not going to question.
This top coat is strangely not clear and looks a little milky in the bottle. If you paint it on too thick, you will notice that the color of your polish will don a slightly foggy appearance. However, this polish is true to its word where it has no harsh odor. The formula is on the thinner side which I like because it dries faster that way.
This top coat comes in a 6 mL bottle which is small for my tastes, especially when it comes to top coat because this is a product that you use with pretty much every manicure. The brush is soft and easy to control, and it’s one of the best features of the Born Pretty package redesign.
What I love about this polish is that it does not smear stamping at all. They somehow forgot to bill this quality somehow in their item description on the website, but it’s amazing. I imagine that because it is water based, it doesn’t interfere with any of the components in other nail polishes.
Born Pretty suggests that this top coat be used with its other water based polishes, presumably so that you can have an odor free application throughout the manicure process.
This top coat gives decent shine and protects your nails. I would definitely buy this to use with stamping manicures, and I have a feeling that it would work wonderfully with nail foils as well because it is water based. It won’t shrink your polish, and it really protects your nail art. I highly recommend it!
