NEVER, have I been able to keep nail polish on for more than 24 hours without chipping, wearing or peeling off (unless you count my acrylics that I gave up on). This stuff really works!!!! I painted on a lighter coat the first time, just to see how it would work, YEAH! Didn't budge! I kept looking at my nails to see if there was anything missing. As a stay at home mom, who also helps in the classroom, I see a lot of water, dirt, and many other polish threatening situations, it lasted! So much so that after 3 days, I took it off and put on another color. And I bought a new color today! I always buy colors for the toes, never for the hands anymore. Just what I need, another thing to spend my money on!!!

Great product, would recommend it to anyone!

My nails haven't started chipping yet. I polished my nails 7 days ago. This is the first base coat to ever let my nails keep polish this long without chipping or constantly putting a top coat on so they don't chip. I would definately buy this again. This week i have worn it under my OPI rent and a regular clear topcoat. I wanted to try it out with an almost clear polish in case it did chip quickly at least with rent it would be almost invisible. I am in love. now i can keep polish on my nails almost as long as i would when i had my UV gel nails. I am letting my natural nails grow out asi am sick of paying the money to get them done i want to finally have my own nails look just as beautiful as the gel ones but without shelling out 25 dollars for a fill every 2 weeks.

**update** my polish lasted til I took it off. I wanted to do new polish over 7 days after I polished my nails so I took off my polish and it was still as fresh and INTACT as the day I put it on. I am IN LOVE. Orly please never discontinue this basecoat!!!

YEEEEHAWWW this stuff actually WORKS! alot of basecoats are so thick if i'm in a hurry they bubble and/or peel off immediately. this was very thin, but my polished hasn't budged for nearly a week! for me that's a huge deal, as my polish usually begins to wear off at the tips the next day. i used this in conjuction with orly polish, and i'm just as happy with this stuff's performance as with opi. get it!

my nails were going through a peeling phase and the polish was beginning to chip within 24 hours of a manicure. i purchased bonder and couldn't believe the difference! no chips for 4 days and now that my nails are healthy again they don't chip for a week! will repurchase again and again.

I'm a nail tech and I get people telling me all the time that their polish stayed on longer than ever before. I use it myself and love it. Any other basecoat (even other Orly basecoats) don't compare; my polish chips or peels. Anyone who polishes their nails needs to try this!

I only require that a basecoat not allow my nails to turn yellow, which is a problem on my toes since polish lasts there for weeks on me. There was no yellowing of my toenails a month after applying one coat of this and two coats of deep red polish. (There always was with the Sally Hansen microfiber basecoat.) I would definitely repurchase it for this reason.

Polish does stick to this rubberized base coat, but I'm having a hard time getting the base coat to stick to my (natural) nails! It does help somewhat with chipping at the tips, however, once it goes it goes completely ... all the polish comes off in one piece. I'm using a treatment (Opi Nail Envy) underneath so that may be the reason it's not working for me.

UPDATE: i have found if you let this dry say like 5 minutes it makes all the difference, my manicures last a week easy
ok i have used this 2x, the first time i used it i went a week w/o any chips! now i am using a red and i have one little chip (today is the 2nd day) but i was drilling/putting up shelves last night.! but just one chip!!! wow i do a lot of typing/stuff w/hands and my manicure lasts maybe 2 days w/o chipping so thus far im impressed! i bought it at sallys for like $5.
