SAVE THE NAIL – 45 SECOND TOP COAT - £6.95
I had never heard of SAVE THE NAIL until the other day when I was browsing Boots for a new topcoat. I had been using a No. 7 one that had gone all gloopy and nicht gut so the time for a new one was nigh. I really like the fast drying topcoats that claim to dry your nails in seconds and the ones that you can apply when your basecoat is still wet. Step in 45 SECOND TOPCOAT.
Initially I picked this up because of the packaging, I love it when things are packaged in brown paper. Easily pleased. I was also intrigued by the ‘45 SECOND’ aspect too, as it was the shortest time advertised compared to the rest of the selection. The price did put me off a bit, it’s £6.95 which I believe is a bit much for a topcoat but it was pay day and I did need one so in the basket it went.
What They Say
- Touch dry nails in only 45 seconds
- contains UV absorbers to protect from colour fading
- contains acrylic resin to help provide a chip resistant and durable coating
Directions
- Shake gently
- Apply one coat over your nail polish
- Can also be used to top up and refresh your manicure for improved durability and shine
- Alternatively, use on natural nails for a natural glossy look
-When using on natural nails, always apply to clean, dry nails.
What I Thought
-It really does dry your nails quickly, I can do one hand and by the time that I’ve finished the other the first are dry.
- It does only dry the top layer though, so if you have multiple layers of polish on be careful!
- It leaves a lovely glossy finish
- It does stop chips for a reasonable amount of time, up to 5 days sometimes!
Would I Buy It Again?
Definitely!
If you want to get your hands on this marvellous topcoat then head to your nearest Boots store, it’s the only place that I can find that sells it!
Also selected SAVE THE NAIL products are on a 1/3rd off offer at the momento so you can get the topcoat for just £4.63!

  3. I'm always looking for stuff like this and I think I should try this one out. I have two kids so whenever I paint my nails I need them to dry super fast or else be ruined by taking care of the kiddos.

    1. The whole line is called 'Save The Nail', I saw that it was made by Nails Inc but then couldn't find any more information about it online.

  8. I saw this in Boots the other day, and I thought it looked great, but I didn't get it because I usually wouldn't pay that much for a topcoat! Great review though x
