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 )

This is a VERY thick top coat and takes a very long time to dry. The nail polish isn't especially chip resistant and unless you are exceptionally careful with your hands you can find your entire nail of polish peeling off in a sheet despite having used this as a base coat. I've repurchased this once in the off chance it was just that one batch that was so thick and gloopy but, no, it's a characteristic of the polish.

This base coat is awful. I don't know if maybe i got an old one or somethng but everytime I put it on it leaves these little bubbles on my nails and makes the color look terrible. Ive tried to give it a chance but its just a no go. Trashed. Has anyone else had this problem?

Overall my favorite base/top coat i've tried so far! To be honest though, I'm too lazy to wait for them to dry and put a top coat on...but the base coat really helps my nails stay healthy underneath!

After years of disappointing products that promise long lasting results and don't deliver, here is one you can believe in. Two weeks of long lasting shiny wear! Fast drying too. I ran and bought another bottle. I never want to run out.. I used it over two coats of Sally's Right Said Red. I use my hands all the time and wash dishes,clean etc. It really is a great product.

I needed a new base coat and this was really cheap ($4, I think), so I bought it.
I put it on and it dried super fast, so that's a plus. Then, I painted on Sephora by OPI's Ocean Love Potion, which is a teal color. I just took off the nail polish and my nails are stained teal-ish. Not attractive. Very disappointed in this product.

This product got the "Best All in One Nail Treatment Award" in In Style's best of beauty issue. I have to agree. This works well as a base or top coat. I often use it mid-week to refresh my manicure and protect my nails. It strengthens and adds shine. Dries quickly too. I bring this to the salon and use it as my base coat. Seche Vite is my go-to top coat so I don't ruin wet polish. A good combination.
