    Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Base Coat:

    I have weird nail chemistry so a lot of polishes don't behave normally for me. This base coat does a pretty good job keeping color on despite that. My only complaint is that it feels kind of goopy and nail polish will leave indents even days after application (most likely just my weird chemistry). With sparkly/textured polishes that's no problem though.

    After drying it remains sticky and nail polish will cling to it very well. Once dry, it hangs on tight!

    All in all: I like it and continue to use it every time I put fresh polish on. :)

              I discovered this little secret for a perfect, long lasting manicure...works sooo well! Under any nail polish it prevents staining AND makes the manicure last.

              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.

                  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 prefer the ULTA base coat to an Essie one I used to use. This ULTA base coat applies easily and dries quickly. I recommend it highly!!

                      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?
