I find this tries to do two things at once and does them both in mediocrity. I find after I use this, my nails stay wet for a very long time and dry quite bubbly, even if the polish underneath is quite dry. I'd say this is a case where you need two separate products.
The Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat is one of my favorite. It's easy to apply. It leaves my nail feeling shinny. It's long lasting and does not chip. It's also fairly price for the quality plus you get two product in 1 the base and top coat.
I use it every time I put nail polish as a base coat so my nail polish doesn't stain my nail and also I use it as a top coat and it has extended the length of time before my nail polish started chipping. I love this base/top coat it's the best one i've bought .
I really don't like this polish. I used it as a top coat (not base) and my nails chipped that day, and I did nothing all day. The second that I went to work, my nails chipped even more. I use Julep nail polish for colour, and normally that polish lasts a solid week. It definitely didn't last when I used this polish as a top coat. This was a waste of my money, in my opinion, and the only thing it did was make a matte polish have a shiny finish. Not worth it.
I've been using this one for years now and I really like it. I have tried different brands but always go back to Sally Hansen.
YESSS Finally a good base and top coat that not only preps nails well (Unlike some base coats that actually makes nail polish real hard to go on) but it also LASTS THROUGH HOT WATER! and Dishes!!
And its SHINY
After a day that is, like most top coats/nail polishes - you should keep your hands out of soaking hot water for about 24-36 hours, but after that go to town, because this top coat actually protects well!
After a few weeks of this on my toes (yes, I neglected to change polish for that long this time oops) I noticed it started to get that white effect in the shower. But then again you should change yours more.. haha
This is the best base/top coat combination that I’ve found! Great quality for the price, and my nails last days without chipping!
One of my favorite all-in-one base and top coat combos. Very cheap, but great quality. Well worth it.
