Best Top Coat of All Time: Cult Nails Wicked Fast

Yeah, I went there. I finally am declaring once and for all the best top coat that I have ever used. Wicked Fast by Cult Nails is pretty unbelievable. I've been searching and failing to find a top coat that works the way I want it to. Here are my expectations for a perfect top coat: dry really flippin' fast, shiny as glass if you please, no freaking tip pull or cuticle pooling, NO BUBBLES, does not thicken up like syrup, does not smell like toxic waste, smooths glitter polishes, doesn't cost a million dollars, and is easy to buy. Wicked Fast satisfies ALL these requirements.

It dries almost as fast as Seche Vite, up until now my HG in terms of drying time, but we're talking like 30 seconds difference maybe. It is as shiny as my favorite shiny top coat, Revlon Quick Dry. I have not had tip pull at all since I started using it. It is a thinner texture than most top coats but not so thin that it pools. It has stayed the same viscosity since the day I opened it, no thickening. It smells like nail polish, not better but not worse. It is thick enough to cover glitter polishes well, meaning I only need one coat of it over chunky glitters. I have never had it bubble on me, despite polishing in a warm place, cold place, and in a room with lots of fans (which are all factors that can create bubbles in my polish). And it is easily available online for $8. AND it is free of the Big 3 Chemicals that suck and free of camphor too (oops!). DAMN. I am not playing, friends, if you have not tried this, do it NOW.

Thank you to Maria for creating this amazing product, I am literally in awe of Wicked Fast!

  1. I've been wondering whether I should get that! Now I really shall have to! It sounds great since Revlon Quick Dry was my favourite top coat until I switched to Seche Vite so my nails would dry a lot faster and it sounds like it's a great mix of the two!

  2. I *love* Wicked Fast too! (Just to nit-pick, I think it has camphor, because Maria was unable to make a good topcoat without camphor, but it rocks nonetheless). It's super shiny, dries almost as quick as SV and won't kill you like SV might. I've been trying to use up my SV and Wicked Fast works as a great refresher coat too -- no shrinkage and makes the mani look even better than brand-new.

  4. I've been in the market for a new topcoat because Seche has been annoying me with its thickening and shrinkage. I might have to try this out while it's still on sale...

  8. This is great to hear. I still have some quick dry top coats. I always have top pull. Drives me nuts. Do you paint this on while your polish is wet or when your polish is dry?

  10. AGREED - with everything you said! I have tried probably 10 top coats and Seche Vite was what I previously settled on. I don't have to settle any longer. Wicked Fast is perfect. I always apply a second coat of top coat the day after I polish my nails, and I get several days longer wear with Wicked Fast. I am just finishing my first bottle, and restocked with 3 more! Cult's Get It On base coat is great too!

  11. I'm definitely ordering this now. Although I did buy Poshe after reading how much you liked it and its like, the worst thing I ever used. lol, but I have faith this will be much better.

  12. I had to buy it Kellie! :) I had thought about it until you posted this, then I said to myself, "self, oh you MUST get this now! Kellie said so!" haha.

    Anyway I have been a Seche user for YEARS but switched to Poshe about 6 months ago...but now it has shrinkage on me as well! Not as bad as Seche, but has it. I liked the fact with Poshe I could freshen up with it. You can do it with this yes?

    I just used this topcoat for the first time last night. So far I LOVE it! I cannot tell yet if the shine is as amazing on me, as I am wearing a dark glitter, but I am betting it is :) Also it dried fast and I don't really know how else to say this, but...it feels so much sturdier on my fingers! Like, this s**t ain't gonna chip so easily when I work like Seche or Poshe can on day 2!

  13. Nail coloring for women is comfort, to see their nails clean and have colors. We must look for great colors and its component without any harsh chemicals that would affect you. You may ask you stylist also for what brand and color best for you.
