Orly Bonder Basecoat bonds to the surface of the nail and grips nail polish enabling your polish job to remain long lasting. It's adhesive effect prevents nail polish from peeling and wearing off.
Bonder Basecoat is to be applied before applying nail polish or nail art. Apply one coat and let set for 1 minute then apply polish.

I have been using a treatment product first on my nails then this Orly product. It seems to really stick to the treatment product and the nail polish seems to really stick to it. I am now ordering my second bottle. I first used it because it was noted number one on a survey here on Nail Polish Canada so I figured I would give it a try. I like it.

This seems to work well. I've used a number of basecoats over the years and find this one to be pretty decent. Seems to bond well with the nail polish and very little chipping happening. Can't say much about staining as haven't found that happening yet - but have been using medium to light colors since I bought it. I would buy it again.

I find this base coats keeps my polish on way longer than my old ones! It prevents most staining, but I find reds still stain.

I was excited to try this based on the reviews, but I've been really disappointed. I've tried it with multiple brands (Orly, Butter London, Zoya, Revlon, Sally Hansen) and it's consistently chipped in the first two days, a problem I never encountered with my old base coat (Revlon quick dry). Also, I used it with a yellow polish, and my nails are now stained. I'll use it up, but only when I plan to wear the polish no more than two days, and when I'm sure it's not a colour that stains.

This is the BEST base coat ever! Easy to apply, dries quickly and truly does what it says it does (only better). The polish has stayed on great - no signs of chipping! The long handle on the mini makes it a breeze to apply. I would definitely buy again and to be honest I am likely going to stay with the smaller size since there is no difference in price per ml between the mini (9ml) and the large (18ml). Three Cheers for Orly's Bonder!!!

I have used many base coats in my time.. none have EVER worked as well as this. Most base coats don't really do anything, this stuff GRIPS it amazingly!! I will never use another brand/type of base coat again! I give this one a 10/10!

i can't believe it took me so long to buy a proper base coat. This one is great, my polish lasts unchipped through numerous showers. I only really keep my nails painted for a few days before I change my manicure though, so I am not sure how it would hold up for a week or so

At last -- a basecoat that grips your nail polish and holds it in place! I'm finding it extends the life of even the chippiest nail polishes. It doesn't work miracles; I'm wearing it under a very fragile polish right now and I've got a couple of little chips on my dominant hand after a couple of days. On my toes, however, it has held the same fragile polish in place for more than 2 weeks with no chipping at all.
