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.

My Nail Polish Pealed the NEXT DAY
Purchased

I never use base and top coat, but I figured I should start. I tried this out, and I think my nail polish stays on better without it! I've tried it as a base and top coat together and just a base coat. I guess my last test will be just a top coat.

Nice and smooth
Purchased

Love this as a top coat. It goes on nice and smooth. The smell is sort of nice too. Doesn't over power like other polishes. Overall I'm glad I purchased this.

Smooth and easy to apply
Purchased

I would be stretching the truth if I said that I was bad at painting nails. I AM AWFUL AT PAINTING NAILS.

The "Dreams Nail Lacquer 2-in-1 Base and Top Coat" is my saving grace. It makes my nail beds smooth and makes applying the nail polish easier. It also helps to create a smooth finished look as a top coat. Big bonus: my polish lasted a whole week with this goodness on top!

top coat

Top coats are always necessary so it was nice to see this in my birchbox. It dries really fast which is a plus. I would buy it.

Didn't pass my test

I tend to judge top coats by how they perform both on top of a color as a sealant to protect a manicure as well as if it can be worn as a stand-alone clear polish. This product did not pass my stand-alone test; even with two coats, it peeled and rubbed off after two days of normal wear-and-tear.

Works Great!

I have more nail polishes then I care to admit, but this has taken the #1 spot of favorite base/top coat. I manage to chip my nails very quickly, and with Dreams it tends to last much longer.

Did the job

This did the job as a base/top coat. Before color my nails were shiny enough to be left without any color if I wanted. I didn't notice any cracking or quick chipping as a top coat, either.

Liked it!

I enjoyed this nail lacquer, made my nails very shiny. I am having issues with the brush handle, but I think it just needs to be glued better to the cap.

not useful

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
