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.

Great! I intentionally didn’t “float” the brush to test it out, and even with some pressing there was minimal to no smudging

holo yeah

haven't used it for my stamping polishes yet, but noticed my current top coat (different brand) ruining the holo/rainbow effects from my foils. on a whim (or maybe i heard it somewhere) I used your smudge-free top coat on the last two nails. Wow!!!! All that beautiful holo and rainbow effects totally there and now totally protected. We're talking all the holo foils, decals, even polishes!! What a score! I'm serious. Need more bottles!!

perfect for stamping

perfect top coat to seal in art work without smudging. I like to top with this and then cover with an extra glossy top coat. preserves my designs.

I really liked that this is a water based top and a no smudge in one product!
