    Comments about OPI Start To Finish Base Coat, Top Coat & Strengthener 3-in-1 Treatment:

    I originally bought this just to wear alone to discourage my nail biting but eventually got into manicures. Once I started putting it over nail color, I was surprised to see tons of bubbles, from use as base coat and top coat. It ruined all the hard work of a smooth color application. It also chipped fairly easily (after 3-4 days) and dried slowly for the price. Part way through the bottle it becomes very gloppy and hard to apply. Will not repurchase since I've discovered Essie's Good to Go Top Coat.

                This concept is so cool. No more looking for the base coat, and then the top coat in addition to the nail color in my nail polish drawer. It's multipurpose and reduces the number of things I have on my table when doing my nails. So easy! It is a shiny finish, and boy does it shine. Lasting power is okay.

                  I'm a dog groomer, keeping nail polish on more than a few hours is almost impossible. I was able to keep polish on almost a week! Would definitely buy again!

                  Did not work well as a top coat to protect against chipping. Did not work any better than Sally Hansen and twice the price.

                      No, OPI does not recommend using this product with gel formula nail lacquers due to a difference in chemistry.
