I mistakenly thought that this was a top coat product, and I did not have time to go and purchase the correct top coat by this brand. I used this as the base and the top coats and it worked great! It is not as thick as the top coat product, but it does dry quickly. My manicure lasted 5 days, so I am happy with that. I was pretty hard on it too. It made it through packing and traveling and playing with grandchildren.
Seche is my favorite base coat product for nails.
I love their topcoat, but any time I use this base my polish starts falling off in less than half a day. All the polish on a nail will fall off in one piece. What?!
Any that make it a more than the first 4 hrs will start chipping off. Sloughing off really, because big chunks of it come off at a time.
Skip it. It makes your whole process worthless!

This is so HORRIBLE. It dried out my toe nail beds and made them turn yellow. I been testing this out for three weeks now and it sucks. Just STOP, Don't buy it. It messed up my toe nail so bad its gross. I had normal nail beds before this and this just did me dirty. Also, my nails chip faster with this base coat and the nail polish chips off in chunks like if it was Elmers glue polish. Idk i Say PASS AND SAVE UR money. Not worth it. Now I have to figure out how to heal my toe nail from the chemical Damage this did. Gross!!

I love this base coat. I was using an expensive nail strengthener as a base coat but it didn't seem to do anything, so I gave this a try because I love Seche Vite top coat. This base coat works better than my old nail strengthener to protect my nails. I like wild colors on my toes, and this base coat protects my nails from staining, leaving a perfect canvas for my next experiment.

Before buying this product, I had NEVER purchased a base coat product of any kind, thinking it was a rip off. I am forever changed! This product makes my uneven nails smooth for painting and dries really quickly. For example, I ripped the dip manicure off my nails (I know, not good) and the surface of my nails was very uneven. I used this on my nails before I repainted them with regular polish and they look really even!

Sadly, this base coat is overpriced for what it does for your manicure. It peels and chips easily off my nails on the 2nd day, taking the nail color with it. My manicure doesn't even last two full days with this. Going to have to try another brand for base coat. I do recommend their Seche Vite quick dry top coat, however.

This is one of the absolute best topcoat. It is very high shine and quick drying. It allows for a very long lasting no chip manicure. The only downside is the strong chemical smell that lasts for several hours.

I personally don't need too much from a base coat. I just need it to be a base to help my nail polish last longer. And this stuff does the trick beautifully! It's smooth, nice and clear, and it does help my nail polish stay on a little longer. I'm on my 2nd bottle of it and I'm really happy I have it.

My nails tend to stain easily with any red nail polishes so I've been on the hunt for a solid base coat to protect my nails from staining while still preventing polish from chipping. I've tried all the expensive brands with no luck, but after a friends recommendation for this brand, I fell in LOVE.
Sarah from Ohio
Love this product! It dries super quickly so I can go about doing other things. Gives a beautiful shine to the nail and prolongs the life of my nail polish.
Ynnie from LA
My nails chip less and grow faster than when I don't use this base coat. I use it every time I paint my nails or a lot of the time just by itself. Cheap enough for how long a bottle lasts me and how good it is

I love this brand! I shopped this brand, taking a chance on it because I found it on sale years ago... and it was awesome! I've been using Seche Vite base coats and top coats for years now due to its impressing results. I feel that my mani's last way longer, look shinier and smoother, and my nails don't look unhealthy while I use these.
I recommend buying the Seche Vite top coat as well, it smooths out little mess-ups or smears and gives you an even shiny finish.

appeared to work fine as a base coat, and for the price, it usually wore well for a few days. i used this base coat exclusively for all my manicures through the summer of 2019. by early October, my nails were very yellow, and were splitting so bad they were hardly growing any more. I was worried that the splitting would begin to extend into my nail bed, so i switched to another base coat. now it is mid-January, and my nails are happy again. unfortunately, i could not recommend.

I used this base coat with the top coat from the same brand and essie color. Within a few hours, my nails were already peeling. I consistently prep my nails before painting them and I still feel that this base coat makes my polish peel faster than if I didn't use it at all.

Got good reviews/stars. Don't get why, my nails chip within a day and I use their base coat too. I might as well go to the drugstore and get something cheap, same result. There's not much shine and as my con states if you don't coat your nails perfectly when they dry you see all the spots you missed because of how it coats. Super frustrating

Protects my nails from the dark colors I like

I needed a good base coat that applies and dries well and this one does the job well.
CC from VA
I really enjoy the seche vive top coat so I bought this base coat thinking it would be up to those standards; well that was wrong - this had my polish chipping and peeling up within a day.

I've used the Seche Vete top coat for a very long time, and it's always been great. This is the first time I've used their base coat, so I hope it will be just as long lasting as the top coat.
Kiki from Dulles, VA
I love this base coat, and as soon as I discovered it I have been a fan for YEARS. I think for 10 years now. Won't use anything else for my home manis and pedis.

I used to use the ridge filling formula but abandoned that for this. I've found that it does a much better job keeping my polish adhered to my nails for longer (when used with the gelsetter top coat by a manufacturer that rhymes with "Bessie"). In addition, it dries super fast. I usually do my own manicures every Sunday night to start the new work week, and when when I don't have time but still want a nice professional look, I just put 1-2 coats of this on and it's done - I can hit the hay without worrrying about having smudges. For the person who said their polish comes off in one piece and very quickly, I'd suggest making sure you're not confusing this with the Seche Vite fast drying top coat. I have a bottle from when I used to use it, and one time I mistakenly applied that as my base coat... as that person described, my nail polish was pretty much peeling off in one piece by the next day (needless to say I was so confused, thinking perhaps I had gotten a bad batch or they had changed the formula). This base coat will not do that to your nails; in fact it does quite the opposite in my 1-2 years of experience using it faithfully..

I really love the top coat so I decided to give the base coat a chance and let me tell you it is just as good.

I have used this product for several years when I do at home pedicures. My polish stays on for weeks without chips.
