Useless top coat that dries in wrinkles over polish. My first application from a new bottle of this was as a top coat to an Essie nail polish that I had applied several hours prior and which was...

This is one of my go-to base coats. I have very weak nails, and I can see a definite difference from using this product. Like any base coat, it doesn't work perfectly with every brand of polish,...

I've gotten this a few times..it works fine but fine isn't good enough when you devote time and work hard on your mani. I've used it only a few times as a top coat and remember it not being very...

I've probably bought it 10 or 20 times already and I will always buy it. This is a dream come true. Since I've tried it, my nails went to a totally new level of perfection)) It dries quickly...

I'm impressed with this product. You don't have to faff around with base coat and top coat on your nails as this does both. My nail varnish still looks great after 3 days of wear. It dries...

Absolutely useless. I've been through half the bottle, and I've tried it with many different brands of polish AND top coats--sadly, this product hasn't made a single bit of difference. My nail...

It's too thick as a base coat, doesn't help nail polish stick to the nail surface at all, if anything, it helps it separate from the nail faster. It's a decent top coat but nothing special.

This product works well, as a base and a top coat. Like all Sally Hansen strengthening polishes, it becomes quite thick as you get further down the bottle but it has never caused me any trouble due...

It works well at first when it isn't so thick. I find with it that my nail polish doesn't dry completely for a whole day so it just ruins my new polish.

I love a product that does more. So I got this, happy that I would not need to get two different products for my nails. It is easy to apply and dries fast much to my delight. I am absolutely...

This stuff is just no good. It's incredibly thick and gloppy---like liquid plastic. Even after it dries (finally), you're suspicious that it might still be wet SOMEWHERE in there. I used it as a...

Excellent base / top coat & just as good as an opi one that i tried (& about half the price although it does take longer to dry) It does go clumpy & thick when you get halfway through the bottle...

This is a VERY thick top coat and takes a very long time to dry. The nail polish isn't especially chip resistant and unless you are exceptionally careful with your hands you can find your entire...

Overall my favorite base/top coat i've tried so far! To be honest though, I'm too lazy to wait for them to dry and put a top coat on...but the base coat really helps my nails stay healthy underneath!

I needed a new base coat and this was really cheap ($4, I think), so I bought it. I put it on and it dried super fast, so that's a plus. Then, I painted on Sephora by OPI's Ocean Love Potion,...

This makes a great base coat (with Insta-Dri for a TC--my manicures last five days with some tipwear but no chips), but! It is no good as a top coat.

I've bought this product twice. It's inexpensive (under $5) and I've used it as a base coat and top coat. I would not repurchase because it's so thick and goopy ! I hate that! Because it's so...
