Basic Training Nail Polish Base Coat

Product ID : basic-training-nail-polish-base-coat


Add To Wish List
Every polish wearer needs a good base coat.  Basic Training is a base coat that acts like double-sided sticky tape. It helps to create a long-lasting bond between the nail and polish.  It also helps prevent staining.

Type: Base Coat
Glitter Load: NA
Glitter Size: NA
Recommended Coats: 1 Coat before polish
Notes: I find base coats to be a very personal preference.  This is not a strengthening base coat, nor is it an aqua-type base.  It is just your standard base coat.

A+ would recommend
This is shaping up to be one of my favorite base coats. I get zero chips and minimal tip wear for at least a week, at which point I usually change my nail polish. ;b

Fantastic base coat!
This base coat is *phenomenal*. I'm a crafter and cook, and between those things & the increased need for hand washing, my manicures always end up chipped and peeling after a couple of days. I've had my current nail polish on for 3 days now, and I have 3 chips, all around the size of the head of a pin. None of them are peeling or showing further chipping. Basic Training outperforms every other base coat I've ever tried.

Woot!
This is seriously one of my absolute must haves anytime I do my nails! My old base coat was discontinued with the indy brand went out of business :-( I've been searching for awhile, and just kinda quit having gorgeous colors on my nails all the time. Now that I've tried this, I will not be without it! Holds well with all the polishes I've tried, no wonkiness after a week, and who can go wrong with KB Shimmer?! One of the best finds in ages!

The Best!
I can't be without this base coat. After the first time I tried it I literally threw away all of my other bases and always have a refill bottle ready! I've now added Fillin Groovy to my collection and these two are all I want or need!

Holds onto polish and protects from staining
This base coat is amazing, I have used it for a few manicures so far and it seems to hold onto the polish very well. However what REALLY sold me on this was the fact that I wore it underneath a polish that stains my nails like crazy, just to test it in that aspect. It protected my nails from getting stained by that polish very well, I had super minimal staining that was easy to get rid of using a mani bomb. I am sure with two coats of this underneath that polish I wouldn't have experienced any staining at all. My old orly base coat did not protect from staining this well, which is something that I was dissatisfied with. Glad I picked up the basic training base coat!

My favorite base coat!
I have several base coats. This one is my favorite. It's a bit sticky. That helps with polish adhesion.

Love it!
I just got this base coat and it works well. Polish goes on smoothly. I haven't had a staining, but avoid polishes that have a review that says they stain. I use it with Clearly On Top and they work very well together. Manicure last about a week on me with no chips.

Great
I use this base coat for every mani and I always will! It creates a nice strong hold, and I of course need it because it is KBShimmer! You can never go wrong with any of KBShimmers products. This is just another great example!
