      Comments about Whim Cover Your Bases Base Coat:

      I thought that this was a great base coat. I applied it under a lilac right before I left for spring break and my nails lasted the entire week! The only thing is to make sure you don't apply it too thick, it will clump up and start to bubble.

          Whim polish is fabulous! Goes on like regular polish, but stays on my nails like shellac. Easy to remove with regular polish remover. I use Ulta polish remover because it works great, and doesn't dry out my nails or have a horrible odor.

            This product was suggested to me by an Ulta associate and I'm so glad it was! It acts like a gel manicure and my nail color last for 2 weeks if not a little longer. I went back and purchased the base coat and nail color. The price is well worthy of the product. I would highly recommend this product if you want your nail color to last and last!

              I was concerned when the nail bed started looking blue/purple. I purchased this as a recommendation from Ulta employee when I said I just wanted a top coat to keep my nails strong.
              Will return to the store
