Impressive, it does dry multiple layers of polish. I did a manicure with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. The shine is the same as the Seche Vite top coat, I was expecting more of a "wow" factor. The application was easy, the Ultra-V has an after smell reminds me of some amber oil from a nature store. Its not really bad. I'm ecstatic it dried the layers well and fast. I'm packing for a trip and didn't want naked nails but also time is an essence. Perfect time to test out my Ultra-V so glad I did! Repeat buy def!
