      The best base coat!

      By SD_NATUREGIRL

      from San Diego

      Comments about Orly Bonder:

      I've used this for years & can't imagine using any other base coat because it's so good at "gripping" nail polish and reduces nail stains from darker colors. If I'm using a ridge filler, I apply it both before and after polish to help it adhere better.

        Comments about Orly Bonder:

        I have heard and read many reviews about this basecoat and how it is described as duct tape for your nails and polish. I have only used it once and the jury is still out. I will continue to try it with other nail lacquers to see how it holds up. It seems to dry fast and I read that you apply it and wait 5 minutes then apply the nail polish and then I heard to wait for it to dry completely. Not sure which is the right answer yet.

          I have used a LOT of different base and top coat products that claim to prevent chipping. This is the first that actually delivered! I used one coat of Bonder, two coats of Butter London polish, and on top coat of Essie Gel Setter and I went four full days without any chips, and only finding minimal chipping at the tips of my nails on the 5th day. Will continue to use!

              As a farmer, I do a very hands-on job, So when my polish had only minimal wear on the tips after 4-5 days, I considered that a win. It will probably last even longer for those who do less hands-on work.

                    I can't really tell you how this stuff works, but it does! It seems to make all the layers you put on become one long lasting layer. I use it under everything, but under cheap heavy glitter polishes is where it really shines. It makes them quiet long lasting and they usually come off as one piece when I'm done with them without taking the top layer of my nail off. if I don't use this stuff with those polishes I spend soooooo long with the acetone to get them off....... If I run out of this stuff I just wait to paint my nails It's not worth spending the time paint my nails if it's not going to last as long.

                        Comments about Orly Bonder:

                        Before using this, my polish would typically last for roughly a day before severely flaking off. I have had the same polish on my nails for 7 days using this basecoat and there is only minimal wear of the polish around the tips of my nails. I use this in combination with the Orly Seal On top coat and it makes my polish last so much longer. I highly highly recommend this for those who are wanting their polish to last longer and spend less time touching up their nails.
