The pattern that was sent to me was Linked Purple. The notes mention that a gel topcoat can be used if desired and to prepare the applique by gently buffing. Well I don't have any "gel" topcoats but a regular clear topcoat may have sufficed and perhaps prolonged the life of this mani. I'm skeptical about any buffing though. These appliques only lasted me a day. My usual hand routines included washing my hands, showering, lotioning and typing; the norm. Too bad on day two I had to remove them. They also don't remove easily with non-acetone remover. Non-acetone removed the design only so I had to resort to my 100% acetone remover. I would try again with a topcoat with what i have left before purchasing. They have really nice designs though so check them out and see what kind of results you get.
