      This product did not seem to prolong the life of my at home manicure - in fact it seemed to peel of the nail polish a little quicker

                This is the best base coat I've ever used. It dries quickly and really does make the polish last longer.

                      This is the best base coat by far! I have trouble with nail polish chipping on my natural nails all the time. I've found that applying the first base base coat after using a buffing block and before the color extends my polish wear by many days!

                          I like the matt finish. Most combination base and top coats are high gloss. The matt finish makes more sense. The polish adheres to the matt finish better than it does to a gloss. It does help the polish last longer which is always a plus!
