Finally a top and base coat that actually works. Dries within seconds and the staying power of the nail polish at least 5/6 days (my experience). It's a bit pricey, but considering it would last a...

This stuff is seriously awful. I was looking for a change from ORLY top to bottom because of its bluish tone and bought this. I didn't need to straighten my nails, but thought that something extra...

This is an overall 4-star product with 5-star aspects. The drying time is very quick and efficient, which I have timed at less than a minute. It is ideal for use as a base coat: it protects your...

I'm not very impressed with this product for the price I paid for it. I thought it'd be a good idea to get a combo product but this combo product just doesn't cut it. Basically it works alright...

What can I say? OPI has the best brush in the business, hands down. But this product is a better base coat than top coat, as it doesn't dry fast enough. It's much better than essie's "good to go"...

I like it! I'm a fan of combo products, so It was good enough for me. The only top\base coat I tried, and I like it so far. The only problem is that sometimes the cap gets screwed off and the brush...

This is just an ok product - my nails are normally very strong so I don't know if it strengthens them or not, but it does seem to keep them from discolouring. (I'm a fan of dark...

This is my base coat and top coat. One bottle does all the job. Dry fast. Not to thick, not to thin. Very shine. Make my nail polish last 10 days without chipping! High recommended!

Works very well, good surface as a base coat, yet a nice hard top coat. For some reason i thought 'formaldehyde free' would not work as well as regular, but i was wrong. If regular scent gives...

OPI's Start to Finish is a good choice for a multi-tasking nail treatment product. It acts as both a base coat and a top coat - though is no HG for either. The positive: It is formaldehyde free...

I'm only giving 4 lippies because of the smell (yes, it's that strong). Otherwise it's a good roundabout product. A bit on the pricey side but it definitely does the job. I use it as a base &...
