The Inexpensive Top Coat You Have to Try!

New York Color Grand Central Station #202, $1.99 at CVS

I’ve been a die hard Seche Vite top coat user for years. I have tried so many things and I always go back. But this time….I may never go back. I read about using this as a top coat from one of my favorite blogs Nouveau Cheap. During the week that her post went up there was a 40% off sale on NYC products at CVS. I picked up two bottles to give Grand Central Station a try. I had high hopes but wasn’t sure how something could compare to my favorite top coat ever.

But it was love at first swipe! Grand Central Station goes on like a dream. It’s just the right consistency for me to be a able to put it on very quickly and it dries in a short time as well. And the shine….girl the shine is fantastic! I love this stuff and I really recommend trying it. CVS had a buy one get one 50% off sale recently and I got two more bottles! This stuff is worth a try if you like a shiny long wearing top coat that won’t cost a mint.

My manicures are holding up for a good week or more with this top coat and my nails look unbelievably shiny!

Try this if you haven’t already! And of course let me know if you already have.

    Crystal, because of you I pickedit up this wee kend and personally I think it dries faster than seche vite. Thanks for letting us in on it! And it’s inexpensive win/win

    The first time I tried it with a cheap polish it didn’t do well. I tried it with the Revlon colorstay and my nails look so shiny. No chipping either. I’m going purchase more.

    I picked this up after seeing your haul video and it is definitely all that! I will definitely be stocking up on this little gem.

    I’ve been using this for a couple years now and I love it. I’ve tried Seche Vite and ended up not being able to use half the bottle, but not with the NYC quick dry. I always stock on it for fear it will be taken away. As that happens when I really like a product. Lol
