Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie from Miracle product I don't know that I've ever used a top coat this great. The chemists who invented this for Julep are GENIUSES! My nails rarely chip when I use this. I used to have to remove my polish when the chips got bad, but now I only have to if I'm ready for a new color or if my nails have grown too much since the last time I painted them. It's super shiny and durable. The first time I used this, I rushed and used a thinner coat and the results were good but not great (it didn't evenly cover my nail). The second (and every time after), I put on a thick coat and made sure to cover the entire nail and the results were fantastic! The instructions say that you should dry them under a 60 watt bulb for maximum hardening. In my opinion, I thought that the time I let them dry in the sun led to a harder finish (but I live in Texas so our sun is pretty bright). Most of the time I paint my nails after work so the sun has already set. I use a 60 watt bulb to cure them and it works great (but I would prefer to use the sun). I will definitely repurchase this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarrieD from Hello, Fabulous! Pared down and polished up the nails last night using the Rock Candy Nail Glaze in Marie (palest sheer violet) and Freedom Polymer Top Coat. "Cured" the top coat with my desk lamp, marveled over the shine for 5 minutes, and turned in for the night. I was happy enough with NO sheet marks when I awoke, even more thrilled many hours -- and a huge department move including, but not limited to, six 500lb fully loaded filing cabinets -- later. Nails are still just as shiny as last night, there is no chipping, no peeling, no scuffs. One tiny scratch on a forefinger and thumb. Seriously, no other top coat could have, would have withstood today's rigors so admirably. Am sold for life on this product. Thank you, Julep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by whit252 from Shrinkage FIXED I read a ton of mixed reviews here after having major shrinkage the first time I used this top coat. The pro-tip suggested applying every 2nd day but that just made the edges curl more. I read through the blog to see if I was missing anything & they suggested starting your manicure by CLEANING YOUR NAILS WITH VINEGAR. This worked! No more shrinkage or polish coming off in sheets. I made it to day 4 with only minimal chips which is a record for me. Next time I'll try reapplying the top coat to see if it will last longer. I love the shine & durability it gives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoccerMomx2 from Whoa.... I just went 7 days chip free, that's NEVER happened before! I have purchased and used every top coat available in the US and I have the chipped nails to prove it. But Freedom is very different, I have never had a top coat work so well, ever. I work in a very busy clinic, I wash my hands all day, before and after every patient. I use my hands, I type notes all night, my hands and nails take a beating every day. This top coat is so amazing, really amazing! I was hesitant due to some bad reviews but I followed the directions, cured under a 60w bulb and they have been perfect since! If you have not tried Freedom, you need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimber from Surprised by how great this is! I added this to my first delivery and I am so happy with it! I am always looking for a good top coat and this has surpassed my expectations! I didn't even do the suggested curing the first time I used it. I couldn't believe how beautifully it dried and how gel-like it is! Very pleased! Will make sure I always have this on hand! (pun intended!)
