Seal in your nail art with our Smudge Free 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 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 this topcoat.   


**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.

I was very disappointed at this product for the first 3 manicure. Graciously the wonderful Maniology team reached out! They advise to always “float” the topcoat over stamping! (I wasn’t doing this). If you don’t know what “floating” means-“Floating is having a fully loaded brush, and applying in a 3 stroke method without the bristles touching the nail. The bristles touching the design are what causes smear.” Following their advise completely changed the way my manis look after using Smudge-Free over stamping! I’m in love with this product AND WITH THE MANIOLOGY TEAM. They are absolutely helpful and prompt to respond.

This stuff is magic!

After I stamp my nails, I use the Smudge-Free Water Based Top Coat and, amazingly, it doesn't smudge the designs I've just stamped. Stays clear (doesn't yellow), dries fast, and helps my mani last a few days. When my polish starts to chip, I can get this top coat to kind of peal off a chunk of polish with it. I'm pretty rough on my hands and don't use gloves to do the dishes, so this stuff helps my manis typically last 3-4 days. I'm fine with it because then I can paint my nails a different base color and play with more stamping plates.
