    Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Base Coat:

    I don't usually like Base Coats but went with this because of the good sale price. The Green Color took me by surprise and I almost didn't try it, but the green makes your nail tips look whiter which is a nice touch if you would like to wear just the base coat alone.

        Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Base Coat:

        This extends the life of my manicures/pedicures by a LOT, makes removal later on a breeze, and keeps my nails from getting stained by darker colors. This is as good as the more expensive brands, and I can't always say that about store/generic brand nail products. Will always use first before painting my nails!

                    I never thought using a base coat would be that big of a deal...but boy was I wrong. I read that using one would make taking dark polish off more easily, and since I like to wear black sometimes I gave it a try. Wow, not only did my polish go on much smoother, but it chipped less, and came off much more easily. I will definitely keep Ulta's base coat on hand at all times!

                      Greetings,

                      There's no "color" listed for this product. I'm looking for a clear base coat and there's a very limited selection on the application. Is the product above green or clear?
