I love this base coat! I started using it when I noticed my deep reds were staining my nails. Using the base coat before I no longer get the awkward leftover color before my new manicure. I now use it before any creme or jelly OPI polish (not just reds or dark shades) because of the look. I always get compliments on how my nails look like gel nails, but they're natural! One base coat, two coats of color and a top coat for thr perfect manicure.
This is terrible. It does absolutely NOTHING. I put it under different OPI nail polishes (I tried it under a red, a blue, and a light pink). When I took the color off, each and every nail was stained. I am currently looking at my terrible looking blue tinted nails. Further, it doesn't help prolong the longevity of the color. I need to repaint after 2 days. All in all, terrible. I might as well be putting water on instead.

Best base coat, nails last!

My nails are weak and very damaged. This base coat give a protective base and help hide the ridges in the nail base.

I had this shipped and was disappointed to find a very, very slight pinkish color ( practically clear) compared to pic online.

I love this base coat. Goes on smooth, dries down quickly. Helps my polish last and keeps colors from staining. I used another brand for years and the base coat would just never dry fully, so my nails would always smudge, even after setting with a manicure lamp. This sets super quick and never smudges!

It's a really good base coat. I don't experience much peeling of polish. I can't keep polish on for more than a couple of days, but that's normal for my nails no matter the base coat. This works well and prevents a lot of staining.

I've used it 3 times- after 2nd day my polish chips
& peels off. Contacted OPI & their answer was I didn't prep my nails! No, I did- how about standing behind your product. This is going in the garbage. So angry.

I love OPI brand in general. This nail base helped my nail polish stay on for a full week. That's great timing for a home manicure.

I use this under all my nail polish. I tend to change polish every 3rd day so I go through base coat often

I've used better basecoats than this one. Doesn't hold polish on very long.
Jac from Florida
I've used this base for years now, it's my absolute favorite. It dries so quick and makes polish last so so long without any staining and minimal chipping. For those wondering, no, it's not purple. The polish is a clear with a slight red purple tint to it. I'm assuming that is there to help cancel out any previous staining the nail may have.

Use on clean, dry nails.

This has to be one of my favorite base coats that I have found been using it for the past 5 months and I absolutely love it. I have no complaints!

Needed a base for a home manicure.
GBJess from Green Bay
Works great and does what it is supposed to do. I applied 2 coats of the base coat and then 2 coats of a red polish. Wore for about a week. No staining on my nail after the polish was removed.

I like OPI nail products a lot and love this base coat because it dries quickly.
mak from buffalo. NY

Best base coat over used on natural nails.
Susan from Upland, Ca
Bought this online to pick up in store, although it was the correct one I ordered the color was definitely not pink. I was hoping for a pink base coat but instead got a slight pink hue. I added a few drops of red nail polish to this bottle to achieve the look I wanted. It was still very good quality!
OPI vs ESSIE from Santa Monica, CA
I usually buy ESSIE polishes and products however their base coat (Million Nails) makes nail polish application very difficult, the polish clumps no matter how thin or new it is. OPI base coat makes nail polish application very easy, like bare nails.

I put this on my fingertips and toes and it's made my nails on both ends weak and fragile for a week.

I love OPI polish. I find them good quality, beautiful colors, and worth the money. However, I didn't like this base coat. It was sticky, as most base coats are to adhere to the polish, but it never drys down. Polish didn't go on smooth and drys somewhat on top but not through.

I've been using OPI for years but didn't try this base coat until about a year ago and I don't think I'll switch any time soon! It dries to the touch in about 5 minutes and keeps a great barrier between your nail and whatever color polish you use.
I usually put it on at night before I go to bed, then paint the color on the next morning. I work with my hands a lot and I'm REALLY hard on my nails, so I tend to chip them a lot when I use a cheap polish. But using this base coat and another OPI color, I can make it last for 5 or 6 days when working, about 10 days when I'm not!
