The Topcoat That Will Make Your Manicure Last Longer Than An Hour

Chanel Le Gel Coat Long-Wear Top Coat Faux-gel topcoats are the new big thing in nail care, and it’s easy to see why. “I love the cushiony, shiny look a gel manicure gives me, but I hate how it destroys my nails whenever I remove it,” lamented McIntyre. The sunlight-activated polish from Chanel is the perfect blend of long-wear and shine, without the nail torture. “My mani lasted a full week without chips and looked glossier than normal,” said Czuleger. “Great way to get gel benefits without the damage.” Chanel Le Gel Coat Long-Wear Top Coat, $28, available at Violet Grey.
