Amazing - 28-11-2018 by

I love this basecoat, it leaves a light tint over then nail which makes my nails look like they have something on them, but its quite a matte finish if you leave it there. So i usually pop a clear top coat on and i'm done. Or i put a nude/pinkish colour over and it skips having to do 2 coats. Very fast drying which is excellent for me as i don't have the time to sit around and wait for polish to dry. Would recommend

Lovely colour - 22-11-2018 by

Great colour on its own, fills ridges and strengthens

Beautiful Nails - 24-09-2018 by

Leaves nails with a gorgeous natural, nude shine which is long wearing.

Very useful - 13-09-2018 by

This is by far the best product I've ever used! I love it. I have never found anything that stays on my nails so well, fills my ridges and creates a protective barrier. Sometimes I even wear it alone. Normal nail polish is sometimes chip that same day and this one will last me 5 to 7 days.

Keeps my nails stain free - 13-09-2018 by

I wear a lot of nail varnish and this helps my nails look great...with or without nail polish! It's brilliant

Great - 07-09-2018 by

Great base coat for any colour. Use it to protect my nails and prevent colour from staining nails.

Pretty good - 04-09-2018 by

Amazing - 03-09-2018 by

Amazing base coat, formula is spectacular!

Great base coat - 20-08-2018 by

This is a great base coat for any polish - especially bright colours! Makes application wonderfully smooth!

Really nice polish - 20-08-2018 by

This is a very nice polish. Easy and quick to apply. Dries fast too.

Best base - 18-07-2018 by

Best base coat. Love using this and how other polishes sit over this.

Great for uneven nails - 03-07-2018 by

Had SNS about 3 times in a row and it absolutely ruined my nails. They full of ridges where the nail technician buffed away my nail and they looked atrocious with my regular nails growing out and the remaining half just scratched up and bumpy.

This foundation treatment is a fantastic filler - my nail polish on top looks way better and even. The formula dries really quickly, dries matte and works well with my polishes on top. Not sure about the treatment aspect of the product though, I haven't noticed much change (but my natural nail is very healthy anyway).

You can't wear this alone, it peels off your nail.

Great - 22-06-2018 by

Bought my own after borrowing my mum's. Perfect base coat. Swiped on easily and evenly, and dried quickly. No more stains! Love it.

Great basecoat - 21-06-2018 by

I always apply a base coat to my nails, to minimise damage and prevent staining.
However, it can add extra time as it's another layer that has to dry down fully before moving on to the next. But I love this base coat because it dries down so fast.
This applies so smoothly and easily and dries down in a minute so I can go in with the nail colour straight away.
It has a nude colour so it neutralises the colour of the nails so the colour looks great.
I don't use nail polish all that regularly so I've had my bottle for years and it still applies beautifully.
The square pull off cap is a little redundant but the brush handle is easy to grip and work with.

Not worth the price - 07-05-2018 by

I found that when I wore this product it would flake of in chunks taking my polish with it. Disappointing.

WOW! There really is nothing like it! - 29-04-2018 by

I was looking for an everyday polish that would just make my nails look nice, kind of a 'my nails but better' thing. I stumbled across this and the reviews made me buy it. This product really is so unique, one coat gives you a matte beige 'coating' that is thicker than normal polish, but it dries really quickly to a smooth, perfected base - no ridges and disguises any white spots. It's pretty much photoshop for your nails! I love wearing it on it's own, but a coloured polish would go over the top like a dream.

Love! - 28-07-2017 by

This is an awsome product! great as a base for nail polish or lovely just on its own for a tidy, matt look!

"Nail foundation" - 16-12-2016 by

I have just opened my order and applied this and it is exactly as it says nail foundation. All my ridges are filled in and smooth and it dried to a beautiful satin matte which I don't want to cover!
My nails look instantly done and incredibly healthy!
Nail must have!

A nail essential - 17-12-2014 by

I use the nail foundation as a base coat every time I paint my nails. I love the way it dries quickly to a silky smooth almost matte finish, I sometimes wear it alone.

great - 07-10-2013 by

Another great product from butter london. I use it alone when I am in a hurry and it is better than any base coat I have ever tried before. Highly recommended.

Fantastic product - 10-08-2013 by

I bought this based on the other reviews on this site. This is a fantastic product and I wear it both as a base coat and on its own. My nails were broken and damaged after using a nail polish from another brand. I used this Nail Foundation to stop my nails from flaking and it did a brilliant job.

Holy Grail base coat - 04-02-2012 by

OMGosh I bought this on a chance and it is amazing.
I have tried the full range of nail products..opi, essie, barielle sally hanson etc but this base coat is like none other. It applies easily and is suprisingly thin. It dries to the most wonderful opaque matt (but with a slight sheen) .looks a beautiful light taupe and easily able to wear by itself but its real value is when you apply your polish you will not believe what a gorgously perfect foundation it gives! I do not normally gush but I am thrilled. I find the final effect as equal to that I achieve when I paint polish over a gel or acrylic nail when I use them. of all the range I would get this (the top coat whilst very good is nothing special for a boutique product and I will probably go back to my faithful sally hanson miracle top coat as i feel it gives a more shiny mani finish that I love)

it''s a good base coat, - 14-04-2011 by

well to be honest this was the first base coat I''ve ever bought so I haven''t really got anything to compare it to but I am happy with it. I like how it dries quickly & you can tell it''s dry coz it looks kinda matte. I found it does have a pretty strong smell though but it''s not as bad as some of the nail polishes I''ve used. You also have to be careful not to pick the bottle up by the black cap as it is not tight and the bottle will fall.

- 12-11-2009 by

I am totally enthralled with this range, this nail foundation is an excellent addition because it doubles as a natural pinkish 'buff' colour on top of making a smooth (matte) base for polish. It's great for emergencies too because it doesn't stain the nail so it can be worn without a basecoat. My nails lift and flake regularly so applying a coat of this evens them out nicely. Best of all, these polishes don't smell like a paint store.
