Sorry to ruin the perfect rating but this system did nothing for me. Followed the directions religiously and my nails started chipping within a day. Plus the top coat took forever to dry. I have had much better results with CND Stickey or Orly Bonder and Seche Vite. Such a bummer because I wanted to love these. The packaging is so elegant (shouldn't matter, but I'm a sucker for pretty bottles) and the formulas are "three free". Fingers crossed for Nubar foundation plus Poshe topcoat. EDIT: I tried using this system again, meticulously following Ji's instructions (she has a video embedded on the Rescue Beauty Lounge website) and discovered that actually, yes, there are advantages to this system. For one thing, the top coat stayed shiny much longer than Poshe and my polish lasted as long and as well as it had with the CND "Stickey sandwich". Considering CND Stickey has a few chemicals in it that RBL doesn't, that's pretty impressive. I'm still taking off a star for the price... I'm hoping that Zoya's system will do just as well at a fraction of the cost. But if it doesn't, then I will buy this system again.

So glad I splurged during the half-off sale for the base coat prep and top coat; received the base coat new in a swap. So far much happier with the top caot than with my old Jessica's Top Priority, which starts to dry as I apply, and caked around t he edge of the bottle nomatter how much I cleaned.
The base coat prep is my sub for OPI's ChipSkip, seems to do the same great job of clearing off oil (and at half-off, is comparable priced).
I liked my Jessica base coat, but it also started the stupid caking around bottle edge, even with a weekly clean up, so I'm ready for a switch.
Expensive at full price, really reasonable (like OPI) when it's on sale (sign up at the website for notices).

these products are great - despite the scary price tag. the 1st bottle kinda prepped my nails for the protein base coat. dried in seconds. the 2nd bottle just really hydrated my nails and gave a BEAUTIFUL nude color. i was tempted to stop there and then. dried in 1-2 minutes. 3rd bottle must be shaken before applied. kinda forgot this step and got nothing but weird residue on the first hand. :( but the coats became clear and shiny as glass by the second hand. advice: let the coats dry completely.

UPDATE: ok, this system is awesome! my nails lasted for 2 weeks!!!!
