This post is to keep up on all the darn base coats that keep getting released… So here we go!
Original Base and Top Coat, Matte Top Coat
These are the orginal base & top coat. The all apply fine with no issues, this top coat isn’t as shiny as the Prohealth but still shiny. Ive noticed with the top coat if you give it a couple seconds to “cool” after curing the shine tends to be better. The Matte top coat isnt a true matte it’s more of a satin – still very pretty though!
(Sorry I don’t have any of the original base coat bottles anymore)
Strength Base & Ridge Filler Base **DISCONTINUED**
So I’ve been using the base coat Strength for awhile now an I have to say they REALLY are awesome!! They do give your nail strength while the polish is on and afterwards… Prior to this my nails would break if I didn’t have the gel polish on… but now they are good… and survive a few days without polish… Its crazy. The Strength is thicker than the original base coat. The Ridge Filler is milky and stays kinda milky. Seriously… If you can buy these DO IT! They will be permanent in the Gelcolor Collection.
Pro Health Base & Top Coat
I used these a few times, I did not have luck with these… and the people i tried them on also had the same issue… Lifting within a few days. What I can say is this top coat is EXTRA shiny!! It works well using the top coat and the Strength base coat.
**UPDATE**: So I’ve been using these on myself and a few friends and I started curing the base and top coat for 45 seconds and doing two coats of each and we’ve been getting 2-3 weeks of wear now!
