Once the base coat was dry, I applied a thin coat of the color ‘Hottie Tomattie’ to my nails and oh my, this color is amazing! It’s between a guava and a bright red, the perfect shade for Summer (I’m rocking it in a Sydney Winter and it still looks amazing). It applied so beautifully and fulfils the promise of smooth application with high gloss and pigment. The color applied almost perfectly in the one coat, but once that dried I painted a second coat and it just perfected the manicure.

I love this base coat. It smooths out the ridges on my nails and also protects them from polish stains. I think it does help my manicure last a little longer as well.

It is expensive but it preps my nails and leave the base very smooth. So my nail polish comes out flawless.

Love CND products! This one especially because I feel like it really grips the nail polish and makes it stay on longer. I used to use all OPI products and ever since switching to CND my polish lasts longer and overall is better.

The base CND is lovely and easy to work it. I use it everytime I need to do my nails. The price is not so low but is worth it.

I have tried so many other brands and have come to the conclusion that simple is better. This basecoat will create the barrier you need to prevent nail staining, perfect for those of us who have great nails and are more concerned about protecting our nails than trying to solve a problem. I highly recommend:)

Ok, I'll be honest, I don't always use a base coat. But when using red colours, it's an absolute must to avoid staining your nails. Very happy with this base coat. It went on very easy, perfect consistency of not too runny or not too thick. One dip can easily do most of your hand, but you'll need to dip a second time to finish off. It only needs one coat and it dries very quickly, but my personal recommendation is to leave it five minutes (set a timer and watch some TV!) just to make sure you don't smudge it. Having a good base coat like this helps the polish stay on and go on smoother, but you need to make sure not to layer it too thick or touch it before it's dry.
While it definitely has the 'nail polish' smell, it's not too extreme, I'll definitely be using this again as it seemed to protect my nails really well. It's a good price for those who don't want to spend a lot!
