My favorite top coat!

Hey everyone!

Today, I thought I would talk to you guys about my favorite top coat! Over the years, I've been searching for a top coat that would would prevent my polish from chipping and make my nails super shiny. I've probably tried at least 15 products and have finally found what is, in my opinion, the absolute best one! The product I'm talking about is:

Why I love it:

  • Miracote seriously makes my nails amazingly shiny! You could probably look back at some of my posts from the past few months and notice this. The only other product that I've found to make my nails even some what as shiny is Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri, but that shine has a slight yellow tint to it in some lighting, which I really don't like.
  • My nails are always completely dry within two minutes!
  • It doesn't bubble! A few of the other top coats I've used would bubble really easily if I accidentally put too much on. (Ex: Out the Door and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri) I've been using Miracote for about 10 months now, and I have not experienced any bubbling due to my top coat.
  • There's absolutely no shrinkage! For awhile, I was really into Seche Vite, but it caused quite a bit of shrinkage with a lot of my polishes. Miracote doesn't do this!
  • This doesn't cause any yellowing of the nails!
  • You don't need any thinner to keep this at it's original consistency!
  • The most important aspect of a top coat, in my opinion, is that it prevents chipping. I wore this on a 10-day vacation last June, where I didn't change my polish once. During that trip, my nails only started chipping on the last day.

The only negative that I can find to Miracote is that you do have to use two coats of it in order to prevent chipping.

Cost: This usually costs about $6-7 for .61oz, which is really good since most products only contain .5 oz.

Where to buy: I've searched multiple beauty stores for this, but haven't had any luck finding it, so I usually purchase it on Amazon. Here's the Amazon link for it:


  1. Thanks for sharing!! I might have to check this out! :)

  2. I'd love to try this out. All the other polishes I have tried either bubble or take forever to dry!!

  3. I'll definitely check this out - if I'm lucky they might ship overseas. Thanks a lot :)

  4. This sounds really good. I'm going to have to look into this :)

  5. Interesting..I too have tried a ton. So many folks LOVE Dimonate from Nubar - I bought 3 bottles of it and it was soooo sheer/thin and not enough shine. I am a big fan of SV myself. I do have their 'restore' if needed. However, I tend to use a lot of topper between putting on an extra coat every other day - so I don't have much issue that folks complain on with SV getting too thick to use at the half way point of the bottle.

  6. Need to add the "cons" of miracote... I bought this on your recommendation and while it does dry pretty fast and is the shiniest top coat ever, it's a bad choice if you do nail art- it smears more than one color :( it also doesn't dry as fast as some of the top coats ive used and if you aren't patient, it'll smear everything underneath the miracote. When I use just one color, miracote is great. Otherwise I stick to sally Hansen diamond flash in the black bottle. Works like a charm!
