Trust me on this, I go to salon but take my own top coat. I have tried them all, best is Poshe, dries in 60 seconds to a high gloss, very smooth, cushiony feel. It will even hide any polish imperfections too.  Others like Seche Vite do not dry that fast or smooth. I get it on ebay for only about $5 per bottle.  Good deals on amazon too. Read the reviews on amazon, most all 5 stars.

I use Perfect Forumla as a top and base coat. Works great for me.

I use Sally Hansen or any drugstore brand quick dry top coat. Then a fast dry spray from Sally’s. No matter how quick drying the products say they are, still have wait time before going about regular activities.

I use the Seche Vite and it dries fast for me.  I will check on the Poshe though.  For  me the Seche Vite smooths out my nails and makes my nails shine.

Glisten & Glow is my favorite. I purchase it from their website. Using this fast dry top coat, my manicure is chip free for one to two weeks. Most of the time it is because of nail growth and just wanting to change the color that I remove the polish.

(At this time) I like Orly Sec N' Dry.  I have good luck with most any speed dry top coat.

Re: Best fast drying top coat?

Best top and base coats are going to be subjective at least partially due to body chemistry. Considering how frequently I change polish, their main benefit to me is that they get my mani dry before I destroy it. That's a long way of saying that most of them work for me as long as I maintain them with the proper type of thinner. I'm currently working my way through bottles from various indie brands that I've accumulated.

 

I did just recently use the mini bottle of Zoya Glossy Seal that came with the 2017 mystery box and really liked it. For what it's worth I also liked the Naked Base. I have the full size bottles from this year's box, but will leave them unopened till I've made more of a dent in what I already have open.
