      I used this and the top coat . It made my nails look professional and lasted several days surprisingly because I had to lift and carry boxes.

          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.
