I admit I had been curious about this set for quite some time. I kept looking at it in Sephora, but I just couldn't bring myself to actually purchase it. What if I couldn't get my nail polish off? What if the base coat didn't work well and polish stained my nails? What if my manicures didn't last at least as long as they do with CND Stickey and Seche Vite?
Well, every one of my fears and worries turned out to be completely unfounded. This base coat and top coat not only protect my nails and create a gorgeously glossy finish, but chipping is minimal to nonexistent for at least a week! Plus, removal is almost laughably simple. I've actually found myself using less nail polish remover and fewer cotton balls than with my regular base and top coat choices (sorry, CND and Seche).
The Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Base and Top Coat Set retails for $45 at sephora.com.
