Hey guys! If you’ve been following my NOTD posts, you’ll know I’ve mentioned the Julep Freedom Polymer Top Coat multiple times. I’ve used it enough to share my opinion of it with you all.
This is something you apply over dry nail polish. You then allow it to cure under a light or for a longer time (5 minutes) in natural light. It then dries completely hard. You could tap your nails together, and there would be no damage. Honestly, I don’t wait until my nail polish is completely dry. I wait until it is dry to the touch but would still get damaged if I pressed too hard on the polish. Know what I mean? I find that it still allows the nail polish to dry completely and quickly. In terms of shine, it is really awesome. It gives shine to matte finishes and it enhances the shine of shiny polish. I really love it. I don’t notice a huge difference in terms of wear time, but it definitely doesn’t hurt like other clear top coats that I’ve used in the past (*cough* NYC *cough*)
Overall, I recommend this polish if you can get it at a cheaper price. I would pay for the add-on price, but not full price. You only get .27 ounces, which isn’t a lot for the price. It is $18.00 ($14.40 for the Maven price). I believe the add-on price is $9.99.
Also, it is free of a lot of chemicals that top coats like Seche Vite has. That is definitely something to keep in mind.
What is your favorite top coat?
I bought this myself. All opinions are my own. I’m not getting paid for this post.
