Fact: This Is the #1 Nail Polish Topcoat in America

Nothing soothes the soul like a good mani-pedi. Between choosing the perfect color to admiring the finished product (and taking a few obligatory snaps of it), getting a fresh coat of polish on your digits is arguably the quickest and easiest way to treat yourself. But regardless of whether you opt to go to a professional salon or choose the DIY route, the whole experience can be ruined if your pretty new nails chip just a few days later. The good news? There's a cure for that, and it's called the trusty topcoat. 

The problem is, choosing just one perfect topcoat can be a bit daunting—there are so many on the market, so how are you supposed to choose the best? To get to the bottom of things, we called upon our friends at Rank & Style to give us the lowdown on the best topcoats out there, so we can all protect our precious polish with super-glossy, long-wear shine. Keep scrolling to see which products made the cut.
