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.

Buy It!

This stuff is worth its weight in gold. I was skeptical that it could actually keep the paint from smearing. But it does. Its a beautiful thing. Definitely an essential.

I'm impressed! I was super skeptical because even my best top coat for stamping has the tendency to smudge, but this is fantastic! I gave my stamp art a few minutes to dry, and even stamps done over foil chips didn't smudge it off! Finally!!!! I'm happy it's inexpensive and actually works! *this is not my own design- only a replication*

I love it!

I've spent so long waiting for my manicures to dry after stamping. I would wait 24 hours and the top coat would still smudge the polish. This top coat completely eliminates that problem. I'm very happy with it.
