Believe the hype! When I do my nails myself it never lasts longer than 2 days, I have tried all base coat/ top coat combos you could think of. I have had REALLY good luck with this base coat. I plan to pick up the top coat soon, but in the meantime I have been using Essies 3 in 1 base/top coat as the top coat which seems to work well with revlon gel coat.

The new No.5 in town! This stuff is great. Really makes my polish stay on for days. No chips. Its the best basecoat I have tried so far. And I have tried many..Posche, Essie, Orly, Sally Hansen, OPI, and even the expensive pink Gelcoat stuff. This outperforms them all. I have back up bottles. The price is great. Easy to find and often times its on sale. Awesome product. I am so glad I saw some of you girls talking about it here and gave it a shot. MUA rocks! Thanks guys!

Really worth a try at such a good price...easy to find on sale. I have experienced longer wear with this base coat under any brand. In fact it is the best base coat I have found and I have tried many. I have used it as a clear coat one day and then painted right over it the next with color and it just lasts and lasts. I guess there is something different in it...it does smell different. Two coats works best for me.

I'll gladly add to the exceptional reviews on this base coat! Prior to picking this up, I was using OPI Ridge Filler, which worked fine, but wasn't anything fabulous.
Revlons base coat is amazing! I get at least 10 Days with no chips & little to no tip wear. I've had mani's that have lasted 15 days! I can't rave enough about this product! I've started stock piling it so that I never run out!!

The raves are true. If you use this base coat, your polish will STAY ON, period. I used it a few days ago with a color from the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails collection, didn't even bother to use a top coat, and my nail color still hasn't even begun to chip. I've never used a nail color that stayed completely chip free until now. Usually the first signs of chipping always appear after showering with me, but even multiple showers haven't begun to show any wear and tear in my color with this stuff.
There are two words of advice I'd give before using this base coat, though. The first is just to be aware that this stuff takes forever to dry. The second is to WORK QUICKLY if you're using this stuff. I'm sort of a slow poke when it comes to applying polish, and I've noticed that with this base coat, if you don't finish the job on your nail pretty quickly, the polish will goop up and look crappy. Other than those two things, I love this base.

This is the hyped up base coat. Newer bottles say "gel" somewhere on the label.
On it own, this doesn't thrill me. But paired with the matching top coat my polish lasts 5+ days with no chips & no tip wear. Very impressive, esp since I do a lot of dishes every day

This stuff is genuinely fabulous. It STAYS, and it doesn't seem to thicken up in the bottle. I like CND Sticky base a lot but it gets thick from use to use and then it's hard to get an even coat.
This has a great brush - I've started saving the polish bottles from this line and decanting other polishes into them for the brush. I don't especially like the color selection in the polish line, but the base and top coats are becoming my mainstay and they work well with other polishes too.

My nail polish doesn't last a week, I tried Orly's bonding, Orly's no chip top coat, and other brands I forgot the names. I searched for this base coat here in Hong Kong but I couldn't find it. Typical of HK to be slow on stuff like these. Anyway when it was made available, I dilly dallied on buying one because it's pricey (about USD12, I think) and I do not want to buy it in case it doesn't work for me. Then one day, Watson's (it's like CVS?) had sa sale of 3 (Quick dry, Trauma, and this base coat) for the same price, USD12, I grabbed a set immediately. I tested it immediately and it worked, My nail polish stuck longer than one week, it even lasted 2 weeks, when I got really lazy, but my nails looked ugly when I remove the polish. Never again.

Wow. This is the ONLY basecoat I have ever used that allowed a manicure to last more than 24 hours on me. I have tried many included ORLY, China Glaze and OPI. All others resulted in chips and peeling sections of polish the next day. I have had this on for 3 days now with Revlon Red and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. Still beautiful and chip-free with no peelies. I am so excited! I am a polish fiend and own hundreds, but it usually seems like I get in a rut where I don't wear polish because it comes off so quickly. Never again! I will continue to buy this. The brush is also great as it is wide and covers most of the nail with one stroke. I let it dry completely and applied two coats of polish. I will continue to purchase this and highly recommend it if you have a difficult time getting polish to last.

I thought I was getting great wear from my manicures with other "sticky" base coats, but I purchased and tried Revlon Colorstay and wow, wow, wow! I used to get tip wear after a day and small chips maybe on day 3 or 4. I've been using the Colorstay for about 4 weeks and I'm on day 7 of my current mani and just today the polish that I wrapped my tips with has worn off with no other chips. Who knows how long I could go if I wasn't tired of this mani. I'm planning on changing it tomorrow which will be day 8. I already bought 2 more bottles. I'm very impressed.
