Bought this at Sally's and it seems to work well. Keeps my nails from turning yellow also.

This is a fantastic product. I hadn't used nail polish in a number of years. It came off so fast that it just wasn't worth it. But with Bonder, my nail polish stays on. I can wash dishes galore, dig in the sandbox, and use my nails as screwdrivers--I may mess up the top layers of polish, but it still sticks. (I favor OPI nail colors, by the way. I also had good luck with Hard Candy and Essie. I did have some chipping with cheap nail polish from Sally Hansen and NYC.) Bonder's consistency is quite thin. It goes on easily and dries very quickly. I love the Orly bottle with the rubberized grip. Even though this product doesn't claim any nail strengthening properties, my nails have been better than they've ever been since I started using it. Wow!

I am impressed with this base coat. I had been using a now discontinued Sally Hansen base coat with bonding formula to it before replacing it with this. It does really keep the color bonded well. I had been using it under the L'oreal Jet Set line. Anybody who has used any speed-dry formula polish knows that stuff chips in a couple of days. This made it last at least 6 days for me & I did forget to put any type of topcoat on. I was really impressed because it stood up to my housework wear & tear. For about $4 at Sally's Beauty supply, it's a bargain.

This stuff is the best for helping my manicures last on my natural nails. I had acrylics for years and got tired of the hassles, but was worried I would have to touch up constantly, with my bonder under Sally hansen products my manicures last a week! Great stuff!

The best base coat I have ever used. It was recommended to me by the owner of a nail supply store. He said it had rubber in the formula so it stretches as your grow and this keeps the polish from chipping.
It goes on easily, dries fast and keeps the polish from chipping a week or more. It doesn't crack the polish like "Sticky" another fixative base coat.
I only use one coat,with 2 coats of Essie or OPI and a top coat.

Not bad. I find putting two coats of this instead of one under polish makes a BIG difference in staying chip-free longer. And this stuff works really well if you use it with the 2-in-1 formula as a top coat.

Decent enough base coat. I use in conjunctoin with good-quality polish and top coat, and my manicures do last, but does it have anything to do with this particular product? Who knows.

This is ok, but I think I'll try a more expensive product next time. I just don't think it does that much.
