This base goes on in a thin, smooth coat and really does prevent nails from chipping. I got it at a CCO for around $8, which is about the same price as most drugstore base coats. I was previously using OPI, which doesn't even compare. I will definitely repurchase!

This made my color last 5 full days before a single chip!! That's nothing short of a miracle because, previously, I'd start getting chips, and then peeling, after only a day or two. With Underlacquer, I was really careful the first couple of days (wearing gloves while doing dishes and cleaning...no long soaks in the tub, etc.) but all bets were off by Day 4 when I was trying on several pairs of new sneakers. I pulled and re-laced over and over and thought my nails were through. Not one chip though! So I went home and did the dishes without gloves. Then I cleaned with Windex and antibacterial wipes, without the gloves. I was in dire need of hand lotion, but my nails still looked great. I opened some pop top cans, tore away some dvd wrappers and typed several long e-mails. And now I have a chip on my right index finger- at the end of Day 5.
This is definitely worth a couple of extra dollars! It dries really fast and also seems to have made my nails feel stronger.

Ever since I started using their Underlacquer and Overlacquer, I have noticed that my nails are healthier. This is a great base coat. Love this!

As far a basecoats go, I guess this ranks right up there with the best of them for natural nails (I have natural, long nails). Applied in a thin coat, it dries almost instantly. This is supposed to help MAC nail lacquer adher better to natural nails--acccording to the website. My MAC-lacquered, home-done manicure did last through showers and general life. This is definitely a good product for protecting natural nails from becoming stained by darker polish colours. I would (and will) repurchase. The $9 retail price is fine. I can buy this with my MAC discount at %30 off, so for $6, it is a steal!
