              Comments about Mavala Protective Base Coat:

              Mavala Protective Base Coat helps my manicure last a week because it keeps my polish from chipping. It also keeps my nail bed from staining and peeling. It works under all types of polish, even fast-drying. However, once the bottle gets very low, the product gets thick and loses its properties. This is my second purchase. I will continue to buy it as long as Ulta carries it. I use this with the Mavala top coat. Mavala products are the best!!!

                  Comments about Mavala Protective Base Coat:

                  I am rarely compelled enough to write a review about a product! Last night I decided to pain my nails. It didn't dry as fast as I thought it would but much faster than other products I had used. I was nervous because often when I've gone to bed, I've woken up with imprints on my nails. I woke up without ANY CHANGE! I went about my routine this morning, washed the dishes, did some yard work with hoses and wrenches, etc...My hands were calloused and so dirty. MY NAILS WERE PERFECT. Washed THREE CARS which included me placing my hands on the rims that were under and behind the brake...Any other base coat and top coat, it would have already chipped off. Three cars later...LITERALLY NO CHIPPING! NO FRIKING CHANGE! Gloss is there and everything. I was 95% I was going to return this due to price before I actually used it and now it's not leaving my house. LOVE IT!!!!!!!

                    Comments about Mavala Protective Base Coat:

                    I'm so glad Ulta is carrying Mavala products now! This basecoat is the best. It provides a somewhat sticky surface and helps nailpolish adhere. It doesn't bubble or stain, and prevents nailcolor from staining. Also prevents nails from peeling. This product is hard to find, and I was unable to find a substitute. Works great under the one-coat fast-drying nailpolishes, too.

                      This basecoat was easy to apply. It did seem to make my manicure last longer. I would buy this again.
