Dreams Nail Lacquer 2-in-1 Base and Top Coat

Our nail polish inventories are already perilously overstocked (can someone say “lack of storage space?”), which is why we love this two-in-one nail enamel from Dreams. The fast-drying formula serves as both a sheer base coat and top coat, saving us precious space for past and future polish-hoarding.

I used this as a bottom coat and a top coat, as it says it can be used as both. I found that as a top coat, it didn't do anything, my nails chipped within a day and as a bottom coat, it was fine, but nothing great

Nothing special

This is just a basic nail gloss/top coat. It doesn't stand out as anything different from the myriad others on the market. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this.

Ok

This was not a very good base coat or top coat. It had no staying power. It also says that it's fast drying and it took FOREVER to dry. I think I'm better off using what I've already got.

I used this with my Essie polish and it chipped the next day.

Never Dries!

This stuff takes forever to dry! I used it on my toes and sat at a desk for about 3 hours. I slipped on sandals after that time and my big toe smeared and wrinkled...after 3 hours! It still feel tacky almost 8 hours later. I'll never use this again, I would feel bad even giving it to someone else to use.

Not good at all!
Sampled

I just used this on my nails last night, and it was horrible. I was giving myself a leisurely manicure, so I think I let each coat dry at least 10 minutes. When it came time to put the top coat on, I noticed that it wasn't going on evenly, and I got these weird gloppy parts on my nails. I used it with Julep nail polish, which usually looks super glossy, but this just dulled the color. And, even though I let each coat dry for so long, I got marks all over my nails from when I went to bed. Definitely not recommended.

Chips everywhere!

I used this as a base and top coat with my favorite Essie nail polish, and it chipped the next day. I get 4-5 days out of my home manicures when I use my Seche Vite base and top coats, and this product did not measure up.

Seems nice just not for me

I get my nails done at the salon - shellac. So, I have no use for this product. I'm sure it's fabulous and a couple years ago I would have loved it. I will be gifting it to someone else.

Meh

I use other base and top coats that are better in my opinion. This one doesn't stay long and doesn't leave my nails looking like I got gel manicure like my other top coat does.

just another clear coat nail polish. I wasn't impressed anymore than I would have been with another clear coat.
