      Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

      This base coat works great when used with the Essence gel polish and top coat. Only giving 4 stars because it doesn't really go above and beyond, it just does its job.

        Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

        I was hoping this would be the base that would fix my manicure problem. I have oily nails and never can get my polish to stay on more than a few hours before it chips. This did make it last a full day, but I hate to fix a manicure that quick.

            Used with the top coat, this stuff has worked great so far! I have tried it with different brands and it works very well. Has a tacky finish, but I'm guessing that's why it works so well.
