    Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Base Coat:

    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!

              Comments about ULTA Salon Nail Base Coat:

              The sales girl gave me this when I asked for top coat and as I didn't have my reading glasses, I didn't bother to check. I then used it as the top coat and it worked well. Didn't take too long to dry and didn't chip easily. When I went on the Ulta web-site, I realized that I had purchased the base coat and the Ulta top coat was actually colorless. Oops. But after reading all the reviews on the top coat on issues with lengthy drying time, I decided to keep this base coat and I have continued to use it as a top coat. I use a Sally Hansen base coat with a strengthener because my nails are fragile, then apply 2 coats of Ulta nail color, and 2 coats of Ulta Base Coat and finish with the Sally Hansen quick drying diamond top coat. It lasts for 2-3 weeks as long as I remember to keep applying the Sally Hansen quick drying top coat every other day. I wash my hands a lot!!

                    It's your standard base coat . Seems as though it creates a good base for nail polish to really stick on to. No complaints here

                                  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?
