I dont do my nails very often -I’m too lazy, but when I do, I want it to last more than 2-3 days. So I tried bonder, and it works very well.. Its like painting a layer of sticky coating on your nails that you can paint your regular nailpolish on top of. Most basecoats I’ve tried seem exactly like a clear topcoat – this was different, after I painted this on and it dried, I touched the top of my nail and it was sticky. When I painted on the polish, it went on really easily and didnt go all thin in certain areas and thick in others.. very even. Worth the 4.00 at most drug stores.
