This Revlon base coat is £6.49 in Boots, but regularly in a 3 for 2 offer on Revlon products. I bought this a while ago as I have a nail polish that is my favourite colour, a bright pink colour, but it really does stain my nails. When I try and rub it off my nails are really stained pink. I decided to see if a base coat would make any difference in reducing the staining of my nails, as it really does take a good few days to completely wear off and my nails just look horrible.
This bottle is a really glossy and sleek bottle. It looks really pretty and stylish. The lid is white, and the bottle is clear but looks white as the actual product inside is a cloudy white colour. Even though the liquid is white, it does not dry on your nails white. It dries clear and actually looks like you have got a shiny nail polish on. It is not too runny this base coat, it is thick enough to apply to your nails easily.
The base coat glides on easily and goes on really thinly, when you apply your nail polish over this base coat, you wouldn't even know you have got it on. The brush is quite thin and makes it easy to apply this to your nails with just a few strokes. It dries really well too this base coat, one minute is all you need for it to be dry enough to apply your nail polish over the top.
After you apply your nail polish, that's it, you don't notice it again! Until after removing you nail polish, it really does its job at protecting your nails from staining. My nails no longer get stained at all by dark nail polishes. My nails go a bit yellow sometimes too as I always paint them, and I have had no yellowing to my nails whatsoever since using this base coat, it really does do the job it says.
I can't recommend this base coat highly enough, it glides on well, the bottle is gorgeous, you can use it as a shiny nail polish if you want, if protects your nails form yellowing and staining, and it doesn't cost a fortune! I will definitely stick with this base coat, I have no need to try others, this one is perfect and does the job it should do perfectly!
