I have finished the bottle and have to say in retrospect this is a great little Basecoat. While I was using it I didn't think it did that much, but it did. Firstly it have me 67 manis (yes, OCD me keeps a count of the number of uses per product) which is about double any other Basecoat gave me. It prevented staining, the new nail growth was not stained and remained that way until I finished this Basecoat and changed products, and the bottle was useable until the last drop with only 1 or 2 additions of OPI thinner to the very end. At the time i didn't think it was anything special but now that I've moved to another product I realise what a gem it is.

I never have much to say about base coats, my focus is always on my polish and top coat.
I do think this base coat is alright. I've found my polish takes longer to chip with it but I do get tip wear after a day. I used it on my friend who's a welder and used her hands a lot. It took a week before she had any major chips and before I started using it her polish would only last two days
It doesn't prevent staining which is a shame. If I wear certain polishes my nails pick up a weird yellow tinge when I remove them.
Someone else said their polish streaks when applying it over this base but I find that I need to leave the base to dry for a bit before applying my polish.

I don't really have any opinion on this base coat besides that, as I've only ever used opi nail envy and this base coat

I love this basecoat! I am using this one for years now, and I have obviously repurchased it multiple times. The substance is very thin - which I like for a basecoat - and there is no staining at all, in contrast to other reviews I see here. The only downside is that it's too thin to wear it on it's own; it won't last long without another coat of colour or top.

I was really disappointed in this product. I got it hoping it would help prevent staining from a teal nail polish I'd bought, but it didn't. The staining was just as bad as without. So I decided to try it just as a regular base coat in the hopes it would make my manicure last longer. It didn't. What's worse is it made painting my nails much harder than usual. The polish went on streaky, and these were polishes I'd used recently without this base and without streaking.

Like I have seen on other reviews this stains my nails also! I had no idea as to why my nails were getting stained. I thought I was doing the right thing by using a base coat...well, after using the OPI natural nail base coat they were always stained! I tried a different base coat and voila, no staining. I am so disappointed as I love OPI top coat and their polishes are the best! Stay away from this base coat :(

This is a pretty decent base coat. I do not necessarily think that this makes my nail polish last forever, but it does help fill in ridges in my nail bed. I do not think this product is essential, but it is nice to have around to get a smoother finish.

I love this base coat. The large brush makes it easy to apply in 1-2 swipes and it protects my nails from staining. I'm surprised to hear others have had problems with staining, not sure why? I ran put of this recently and bought the orly base coat because the shops had run out of the opi one... It's pretty good too but I still prefer my opi.

Terrible, terrible base coat. This does not protect your nails from staining; I used a tangerine polish over literally three coats of this and my nails were still stained orange from it. It does not adhere polish to the nail the way a base coat should either; no matter the quality of my polish, everything would peel off after a day. Don't waste your money on this.

Very good, does what it supposed to be doing. Keeps my mani in great condition and prolongs the wear of my polish. I put it to the test with Chanel Rouge Noir, which is notorious for staining your nails. It did protect them! That's all I need to know!

I don't think I will ever use this again, this always stains my nails an ugly yellow or orange. I tried another brand and after I removed a dark gray (almost black) nail polish, 0 staining!
