I used this as a base. I applied 2 coats and then let them dry for a bit. This doesn't only help your nails grow long and strong, but it also serves as a base coat to prevent your nails from staining.

This is an older photo after trying all the shades of this polish - so you can see the structure the raw polish leaves on your nails. Glittery/sandy. Thumb and middle finger are the colors I chose.

My absolute favorite. 2€. Not only does it give your nails a shine that you can see your face in but it also gives them a thick protective layer. I applied 3 coats. Better than any studio gel nails.
