This base & top coat team worked wonderfully with the red color (Kundalini Hustle) I chose. Everything went on smoothly, dried fairly quickly, and has lasted on my toes for over a week. It still has the same shine as when it was first applied.
NOTE: I recommend removing the bulky top (it slides off of the part with the brush that screws directly onto the bottle) because its bulkiness makes it difficult to see how well you are/not applying the polish.
I was hesitant buying an 18$ nail polish, but it’s so worth it. The base coat stays on well and creates a smooth surface for colorized polish, or a glossy coat in itself. The top coat leaves no streaks and it’s gorgeous and glossy. I was concerned about the bulky top but it is removable and the smaller handle is much more manageable. After my first polish, I was hooked and won’t be using another nail polish brand again. The 8 free is a great perk too. Love the fact that you can get the two most used polishes together and at a discount.
