Love this top coat works amazingly.
I'm impressed with this product. You don't have to faff around with base coat and top coat on your nails as this does both. My nail varnish still looks great after 3 days of wear. It dries quickly as well so I'll definitely be using this product again.
I've been through half the bottle, and I've tried it with many different brands of polish AND top coats--sadly, this product hasn't made a single bit of difference. My nail polish almost always chips (and often peels off altogether) the same day.
This might be the only product I paid money for that I won't even force myself to use up. What would be the point?
It's too thick as a base coat, doesn't help nail polish stick to the nail surface at all, if anything, it helps it separate from the nail faster. It's a decent top coat but nothing special.
This product works well, as a base and a top coat. Like all Sally Hansen strengthening polishes, it becomes quite thick as you get further down the bottle but it has never caused me any trouble due to the cheap price. My nails are brittle but with this as a base coat under my nail polish my nails do seem less likely to break. As a top coat, I have had a few chips but I'm partial to picking my nail polish off during the day. Overall I am very pleased this product, Sally Hansen products never fail to let me down.
It works well at first when it isn't so thick. I find with it that my nail polish doesn't dry completely for a whole day so it just ruins my new polish.
I love a product that does more. So I got this, happy that I would not need to get two different products for my nails. It is easy to apply and dries fast much to my delight. I am absolutely horrible at applying nail polish but this presented no problems for me. The top and base coat was not too thick either. Good product!
This stuff is just no good. It's incredibly thick and gloppy---like liquid plastic. Even after it dries (finally), you're suspicious that it might still be wet SOMEWHERE in there. I used it as a base coat with a gorgeous Sonia Kashuk polish, a deep plum called Hocus Pocus. That polish is a one-coater and goes on very smooth. Well, not with this base coat. For the first time ever, Hocus Pocus went on streaky and patchy and needed a second coat just to cover up the ugly. And now, hours later, I already have chipping, and I know it's because of that base coat, which I imagine would peel off in one sheet if I tried. Ugh, don't waste your money.
It's good.. it really does help the nail polish from chipping, well I find anyway. The shine is amazing but as others said it does take for-everrrrrr to dry. Even when it's dry once you touch it, it leaves that ugly finger print mark or leaves a smudge from where it's knocked off of something. If you have the time to wait 3 hours before touching anything it's perfect for you..
Overall I would buy it again though
Excellent base / top coat & just as good as an opi one that i tried (& about half the price although it does take longer to dry)
It does go clumpy & thick when you get halfway through the bottle though so usually warrants a repurchase at that point in order to keep a salon worthy finish (I'm a perfectionist )
