I am impressed with myself. I finished an entire bottle of top coat without straying! I picked this up in April when I was kind of in between top coats. My all time favorite top coat is Essie Good to Go! but it’s $10 a bottle. When you do your nails as much as I do, that adds up quick. I had heard good things about this top coat so I decided to give it a try.
INM stands for International Nail Manufacturers. They make alot of nail related products though I have never tried any. According to the bottle this is America’s #1 super fast drying top coat. I imagine it is used heavily by nail professionals. This was $5 at Sally’s for .5 oz.
As far as top coats goes this is a thin top coat, which I prefer. I’m not a fan of thick top coats such as Seche Vite. INM claims that Out the Door “has a unique formula that contains Acrylates. Acrylate forms a glaze to make your polish chip-proof for an ultra high-gloss shine.” I can’t speak to the claims about Acrylates, I’m not a scientist! But, from my experience, I do agree that this top coat is quite shiny wears very well.
The brush is your average brush. Not thin, not thick. It’s quite comparable to Essie brushes.
As with all top coats, this one does start to get thick as you near the end of the bottle but it didn’t bother me enough to attempt to thin it with a polish thinner.
The ONLY complaint I have regarding this top coat is the packaging. The label wraps all the way around the bottle and is impossible to remove. I could never tell how much product was left in the bottle. It drives me crazy! Luckily, this complaint can be easily fixed. Sally’s sells a 2.5 oz bottle that doesn’t have an opaque label. (Another great thing about the 2.5oz bottle is the price; $10. That makes this top coat REALLY cheap)
Overall, I am quite happy with this top coat and will purchase a new bottle next time I’m at Sally’s.
