Somewhat watery formula, slight lavender tint in the bottle, dries quickly & matte on nails, & strange cooling sensation during application. No other base coat or polish I've used on my nails ever felt as cold on application (every time) as this 1. Got mine online for $7 from Amazon.
This base coat shortens the life of my manicures instead of making them last longer. Nailpolish doesn't chip but this base makes the whole sheet of polish pop off my nails after a couple of days' wear - the specific culprit is water exposure. The more I have to immerse my hands in water, the sooner the polish will pop off. Initially, this was an obvious disappointment.
I came up with a good way to use this fickle base coat. I couldn't get it last longer, so now I reserve this base for difficult-to-remove manicures (particularly glitter) & any manicure I'm not expecting to keep longer than 2-3 days. Since the polish peels effortlessly off & leaves my nails clean & undamaged, this makes for quick & easy polish change. I'd also have to deal with water less if possible while using this.
