      Comments about Whim Cover Your Bases Base Coat:

      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!

            Comments about Whim Cover Your Bases Base Coat:

            Applied quickly and easily, but within 6 hours had chipped on the tips of my very short nails and all I did was take a shower 5 hours after applying the polish, base coat, polish and top coat of the same brand. Great for an evening out because of ease of application, but does not stand up to any wear at all.
