As an avid nail polish lover I was looking for a 7 free line I liked. I tried butter London patent shine with mixed results so read up on this. Big mistake. I purchased the base and three colours. The base is awful. It takes about 2 hours to fully be tack free, so don't bother trying to put a colour on top. I tired black, red and a blush colour and every single one streaked and clumped up the base. The brush is also cut uneven making application that much harder. The other big fail for this for me was how badly the colours stained my nails. I tried the berry busy on top of the base and immediately removed and my nail was badly stained. Overall a hard no for me.
For my nails the CND products work the best and this base coat is no exception. This is a great alternative to the Stickey base coat for those who don't prefer the green-grey tinge that Stickey leaves. This base coat has a light beige tinge which is ok for color on top or even a French manicure. Hopefully in the future they will come up with a clear one.
