    Comments about Whim Cover Your Bases Base Coat:

    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!

        • Daily Use

        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.

                  Comments about Whim Cover Your Bases Base Coat:

                  I am obsessed with gels and I wanted to try this nail brand since it claimed to be like gel polish minus the UV Machine. It dries fast and lasts for awhile. I took it on vacation and with being in the water nonstop it stayed on without chipping for about a week. Kind of costly when you start off since you have to buy 3 types of polish (base coat, color and top coat) but after that you will only have to add color to your selection. Overall this is a good product.
