I had wanted to try Zoya Anchor for some time as it is a rubberized base coat and those work the best for me. My HG is CND Stickey but it does leave a blue tint on my nails. Anchor is clear and so I wanted to try it to avoid that blue tint. I picked this up during Zoya’s Black Friday sale.

Unfortunately this base coat does not work for me. I tried it numerous times with a variety …

Zoya Anchor is my go-to base coat. It dries quickly and plays nicely with the big 3 (OPI, Essie, and of course Zoya). The major drawback is that it absolutely CANNOT be used as a stand-alone clear coat. Sometimes I get ready to do my nails - remove old polish, oil nails, push back cuticles, file nails - and realize that polishing will have to wait until the following day. If I apply Anchor …Read more

Zoya was already my favorite polish brand and I decided to try their base coat after my old favorite base by another brand was discontinued. The product has a strong chemical scent, but it dries reasonably quickly and it keeps my polishes from chipping for a week or more! My only complaint is that a bottle costs $10, so hopefully this will last a long time. I have been using Anchor for months and …Read more

Anchor made my polish last very long - but it also took tiny pieces of my nail surface with it when I removed it! I was left with tiny craters all over my nails that took months to grow out. Other base coats I've tried don't do the same thing so I'm pretty sure that wasn't a problem with my removal process.

I like both Armor and Acnhor - Anchor is a great base coat and Armor is an OK (not a HG) top coat. I prefer Seche Vite as a topper - but that can get "gloopy".

Anchor is a very good base coat in that it hels my manicure last longer, applies nice and thin (and smoothly without bubbling) and the brush is a good width,
I's a fan of Zoya in general.

I've just recently discovered zoya polishes and have been slowly replacing my collection. Since I am in graduate school for my field we aren't allowed to wear colored polishes during certain times so I made sure I got this clear base coat. I think it works wonderfully by itself to give nails shine and is a good base coat for color. I love that it doesn't have harmful chemicals …Read more

I didn't like this base coat. Polish takes longer to dry when wearing it. Anchor also dried out my nails and was not easy to remove. The base extends the wear of certain polishes for a day or two, but not significantly. One good quality is that it did not yellow my nails.

i really love this base coat, never had issues with bubbles at all. protects my nail well, they no longer break nor feel brittle. best when paired with zoya's armor. let this base dry before putting nail polish to prevent bubbles.

Nothing but bubbles, regardless of the fact that I don't shake my polishes. Every manicure is the same. Will not repurchase.

I really like this basecoat. I use this interchangeably with Zoya's other basecoat, Get Even (Which I also love!). No, this won't fill in your ridges, but it also doesn't claim to. This applies very nicely and helps to make my polish last a bit longer. Will definitely repurchase.
