This was the second base coat I'd ever used after OPI natural basecoat. I initially purchased the pinkie 3.75ml bottle to try it out and it worked really well; no chips, cracks, lifting etc.
I loved it so much I took the plunge and bought the salon size 68ml bottle.
Everything was great at first and I was getting 7 days of wear out of my nail polish with no issues. When the bottle …

Not my favorite. It does a decent job at preventing any colors above from staining the nail bed, and is also fairly quick-drying. It also doesn't leave behind a tint in the nail, unlike Orly Glosser (and many will prefer the CND product for that reason). But otherwise I've found this product doesn't noticeably improve the longevity of a manicure, and it just feels like an extra …Read more

The packaging is very cool - a half flat bottle, but that's the only distinguishing advantage of this product.
First, the color is way too emerald green - it will show through semi-opaque light polish colors. With light polish color nails look greenish/bluish and not attractive at all. The worst part is that after the polish being removed I found my nails stained by this ugly color! (I …

This makes my nail polish peel off at the tips. I want to like it, because the packaging is pretty and I like the green color.

I'll go back to Nail Tek 2, which doesn't really help my nails, but is my HG base coat.

I think the price is good - you're not out much if it doesn't work for you.

The best base coat. Protects my nails from any coloring from nail polish be it blue, purple, pink or yellow. I've have absolutely no skrinkage. I use Orly Sec 'N Dry Top coat and it's a combination I'll stay with for a very long time. My mani lasts for at least a week with no chipping and I attribute it totally to the base and top coat combination. I always cover the …Read more

I had previously purchased OPI basecoat, but I felt that the polish wasn't adhering well to it, and as a result, I had too many do-overs. So I saw that this was recommended highly, and tried this instead. I am really happy with it. I almost never have to redo any of my nails. It dries quickly, and it has the appropriate stickiness for my polish to adhere to it. I also haven't had …Read more

Love it!!! Very thin, clear, fast drying base coat that nail color can easily be spread over. Not too tacky, but extends my manicure to 7 days with no chips!! This is my holy grail of base coats. My nail salon swears by it and recommended it to me. Also it doesn't interfere with nail polish colors as its clear.

I have never edited a review before but since I was informed my first review of this product was helpful, I needed to edit. I no longer use this product as it stains my nails! One of the purposes of a basecoat is to prevent staining and this leaves my nails distinctly blue! Many on the Nail Board here feel the same

I have been usingt this basecoat for at least 10 years or more. I …

I have been trying this product for a few weeks now, and I love it. I am on day 6 of my current manicure and it looks just as fresh as it did the first day. No tip wear, no chips. I wish i had tried this sooner, I definitely recommend.

I'm on my 3rd bottle of this and feel no need to try another brand. I love how quickly it dries and the brush is absolute perfection for me. The product has a watery consistency and only needs thinning at the very end of the bottle. I also like the relatively clean ingredients list and the smell isn't overpowering. The lid comes off easily too and it never bubbles.
