5 free top coat recommendations

I like to stick to nail polish that is 5 free (or more would be good ). I usually use Zoya and love it, and the top coat is fine, but... I really want a top coat that looks more like a gel. Is there a 5 free gel type top coat out there? And if so, is it any good?

What's 5 free?

Free from formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.

5 free means free from formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor and formaldehyde resin. Not natural by a long shot but free from some of the worst ingredients.

Sorry thought it hadn't posted.

Stripy would this one work maybe? I can't see any of those on the ingredients list. It's a great product, very shiny and currently my favourite.

Thank you I will have a look at that. Does it take long to dry? I am terrible for smudging nails!

It's super quick and will dry out your whole mani in a matter of minutes. Let us know how you get on! smile
