After falling out of love with my longstanding basecoat, CND Stickey, and hearing so much hype about this basecoat, I decided to give it a try. CND Stickey had been great for years, but as each...

I don't know why or how some of the reviewers are claiming they are getting bubbles and/or peeling. I think if you apply too thick you will get that (as with any nail lacquer as well). I do two...

I used this as my basecoat for a while and all my manicures peeled off like crazy. They barely lasted a couple days before the edges started to lift. I've since switched to Deborah Lippmann Hard...

I'm unsure why people like this product. It goes on streaky and matte, making the nails look unhealthy. If you look closely, there are lots of little lumps or bubbles. A second coat to iron out the...

For me this is the subtle difference that make my nails look professionally manicured vs. at home. Thin layers are the only way to keep from peeling.

I agree with other reviews in that I think the BL foundation promotes peeling at the base of your manicure, I too am experienced at giving myself a weekly manicure, and it seems like I end up with...

I purchased this in a special package with Butter P.D. Quick Topcoat for $15 for both. I would normally not spend $15 on one nail polish. As a base coat, this does a superb job of smoothing the...

Not worth the money. Bought it after reading the great reviews, and it's a huge disappointment. Nail polish chips after 1 day (!) and after 2-3 days huge pieced of nail polish just fall off,...

Though I'm always on the lookout for something new or better, for the past couple years this has been HG. I really can't stand BL bottles so that annoys me, but I like the nudey color of this BC. I...

I love this base coat. It's marketed as make-up for your nails and I would have to agree! It has a lovely nude matte finish which is great to wear alone as well as under a polish. It dries fast, a...

It costs $20 and it still chipped from normal everyday tasks. Disappointed.

I LOVE butter polishes...but I was very surprised by this basecoat. I got it today (was so excited to get it) and It bubbled with one coat. I know how to apply polish very well so I don't think it...

Was very disappointed w/this base coat. Is thick, gloppy, and takes forever to dry, which caused some bubbling in my manicure, not cool! I love the top coat, but am returning the base coat.

I love this because it truly stops dark-colored nail polish from staining my nails. It dries fast. I use 1 coat before I use color nail polish. It also looks great alone. I use 3 coats along with...

This is pretty great - it really is like having foundation for your nails. I've even worn this alone and it just gives my nails a buff nude color that can work with anything. Most important, I find...
