    Comments about OPI Start To Finish Base Coat, Top Coat & Strengthener 3-in-1 Treatment:

    I love to do my own nails and always use OPI polish so I decided to splurge the other day on this to use as both a base coat and top coat. I figured with the steep price that I would have a longer lasting mani but by the next morning my nails were already chipping and by day 3 they were chipping like they would after day 6 or 7 using a sally Hansen top coat I usually use from the drug store. I took it back to Ulta and got my money back. No thanks. I'm sticking with the cheaper drug store top coats.

        Comments about OPI Start To Finish Base Coat, Top Coat & Strengthener 3-in-1 Treatment:

        I am usually not a huge fan of OPI, but, since i couldn't find the base coat i have always used in the past, i went ahead and tried this. I fell in love instantly. I am a DIY nail person, and after using this, my nails looked like professionals had done them. I wash my hands a lot, and am the main person to do dishes at home. I try to where my gloves as much as possible as to not hurt and chip my polish, but, my nails were fine without them! They only started chipping about 8 or 9 days after i had polished them. Small downside, the smell is strong, but doesn't seem to last, so it doesn't bother me too much. Great product.

          This product saves me money from purchasing a separate base coat or top coat because this product acts as both. Great product idea.

              Comments about OPI Start To Finish Base Coat, Top Coat & Strengthener 3-in-1 Treatment:

              I am happy with the staying power of this, however if you leave it on your nails too long it will DESTROY them. If you're the type of person who's lax on removing polish (like toenail polish) this is not for you. Learned the hard way, left it on my toenails for a couple weeks since it wasn't chipped, when I finally took it off ALL of my nails were cracking and peeling off. I've never had a polish do that to me before and now I'm stuck waiting for my toenails to grow back in new. I used the formaldehyde free formula too.
