Seal in your nail art with our Smudge-Free Water Based Top Coat. Whether it's just a basic color, nail stamping patterns, nail foils, or mirror finished chrome/holo powders, this top coat won't smudge, crack or dull any design you have just slaved over. This one is a Must Add to your nail polish collection!

Instructions for longevity

This top coat will appear thinner than your regular top coat! Due to the nature of the water-based formula, we recommend adding another layer of your favorite top coat on top of our Smudge Free for added protection, longevity, and shine.  This is especially important if you routinely use hand sanitizer as the alcohol content can dissolve a water-based top coat.   


**Ingredients**: Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate, Acryates Copolymer, Nitrocellulose, Ethanol, Adipic Acidneopentylglycotrimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, and Acetyl Tributyl Citrate. *Bottle Size*: 0.4 fl oz (13mL).

Only top coat you need

I've used many different top coats over my stamped nails, only for them to be ruined. Even other polishes promising not to smudge. This is the only one that followed through, I'll never use another.

Game changer...!

Prior to using this top coat, I would have to be really careful to not smidge my stamp. I used this for the first time, and it made my manicure flawless.

Smudge free top coat review

I really like it and it actually works! So glad it does. I used to use just basic top coats and they would always smudge my stamping.

Had a small weep...

Omg..been using seche vive for ages as a top coat in large gloop as to not smudge....always ended up smudging at least 2 or 3 nails. Just got this...used a normal polish amount over my stamp.....NO SMUDGING!!! Still going to add vive as a top-top coat for sealing. But omg so pretty. How did I live so long without this? Please excuse my dirty cuticles.
