I love it! It's the best base coat I've ever gotten and I'd definitely buy a second one! **if you're painting red on your nails USE TWO COATS**

One of the worst base coats I ever tried. My nail polish was literally falling of at the end of the second day, while usually it lasts for a week. I gave it the second chance, but had the same...

I think is the best base coat. Pros: Very cheap. Easy application, good brush. Dries fast. Doesn't damage nails. Manicure last a lot more (five days without chipping, used with Gelous and CG FF...

Absolute favourite base coat. It goes on smoothly, isn't too thick or thin, provides a nice base for polish to adhere to, does not bubble and it dries quickly. I have no complaints about this...

I used this basecoat for awhile with all sorts of polish brands/types. Goes on smoothly, dries quickly. Leaves a nice soft sheen when worn alone and can be worn as a clearcoat as it does not feel...

I'm very surprised to see so many negative reviews of this base coat as I had such a good experience with it! I had been wanting to try out Orly's Rubberised Base Coat for sometime, but I...

Probably the worst base coat I've tried. The polish chips within a day or two, and sometimes makes all of the polish simply fall off, leaving a clean nail behind. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Does the job nicely and is also super affordable. I used to use CND's super stickey base coat until I realized the green tint of the CND base coat would actually show through my manis where I used...

This is great stuff. Like somebody recommended below, I use it after 1 layer of base, 2 layers of polish. It's my 4th layer. I use Sache Vite dryer on the top of it. The main trick here is to let...

I've been using this base coat for quite some time. I am currently on my second bottle. When I first began to use it, I had read it was best to apply your color when the base coat was semi fresh....

I got this because I generally like China Glaze, and I thought I might as well try it. The polish is reasonably thick, glossy, and shiny. It self-levels really well. It also looks pretty nice on...

Overall, this is a good base coat. It is a bit expensive considering other better options that cost the same or a tad more. It does prolong the life of my manicure by a 2 to 4 days, and it goes on...

This doesn't prolong the life of my manicure whatsoever. I notice my polish applies strangely when I use this. This almost acts like a magnet, sucking my polish onto the nail and making for a not...

This has become my absolute favourite basecoat and I will be repurchasing very shortly. It's fast drying and leaves a slight tacky feel on the nails once dry. It grabs onto polish very well and...
