This does NOT dry FAST at all! I really liked Seche Vite top coat because it dries down so fast, removes some of the unevenness on the polished nails. But, I wanted to try a different product because I cant seem to get through the bottle more than half way and it STINKS!. This one has typical nail polish smell but it does not dry down fast so it's annoying. However, this keeps my nails from chipping better than Seche Vite one. Gotta hunt for another top coat!
