Try it yourself on one nail: apply it to one nail and then let it dry. Then feel it. It's smooth, not sticky, there's no difference between this and regular topcoat. Essence extreme last basecoat...

It works well as a basecoat with most polishes and top coats. I do like how quickly it dries, easily applies and that it doesn't thicken too much. However...after switching to a different basecoat...

It's so steady!! It doesn't chip at all! Shocking! Even when I'm not careful, it protects my nail very well. The key is to put it on the nail end and underneath as well. It works so much better...

I've tried various basecoats and this is hands-down one of the best I have tried. This has a thicker texture and something about the "rubber" finish seems to bond the layers of polish and...

I've been using this for years, and I have yet to find anything better. It keeps my polish chip-free, and it lasts for many days. This has a thicker texture than other primers, but it's not...

I've been using this for several months now and it's just not impressive. It has a very thin, watery texture and requires a few coats to smooth the nail OR be an effective base coat. I use two...

Great base coat! This rubberized base coat dries to a slightly tacky but matte finish and nail polish just sticks to it. Will definitely lengthen the wear time of any polish! My mom gave me her...

I love having my nails painted but I work with animals so they would pretty much chip the day after painting them with the OPI base coat I had been using. This one is bulletproof. I can go...

My favorite base coat so far, especially as it really does seem to make manicures last longer and prevent nail color from staining the nail... and the colors I favor are bright reds, vampy reds,...

I do my own manicures so often (roughly every 4-6 days) and I find myself leaning towards Orly Bonder often as my nails do not need any strengthening treatments since they’re pretty strong on their...

During the months leading up to my wedding, I had my nails done every two weeks at a salon. My nail tech used Orly Bonder, and the salon had a three-day no chip guarantee (or they'd do your nails...

This is the most effective base coat I have used for extending the life of a manicure. However, a few weeks of regular use caused my nails to peel. I'm taking a break for a few weeks and my nails...

I used this bonder base coat for about a year. During that course of time, my nails became noticeably weaker, and would chip, peel, and break more easily. It took some time for me to figure out...

I had high hopes due to the positive rating, but this just did not work for me. It made all of my manicures chip or peel within a few days, even with polish that last 7+ days with the Revlon gel...

Well, I wish I could say something nice, but I can't. This base coat doesn't stick to my nails, it peels off like a bad gel-cream. On top of the peeling it helps colorful polishes to get into my...

This is the best basecoat I have ever used. I agree it does feel slightly rubbery when it dries, but after you apply the nail polish, it's covered up. We all know that typically dark polishes...
