I was treated to a pedicure by my oldest daughter last night, so I'm just on day one of wearing the polish. No base Coat needed... apply two coats of the color and then apply the top coat (provided). It 'cures' with natural light (and since it was after dark when we did it, I took it a step further and I was inside during the 'drying period').
My first thoughts are that I like it! I didn't find that it took any longer than any other polish to dry. The finish is ultra shiny, too! It claims to last 14 days so I will definitely check back in a couple of weeks to let you know the results and my thoughts.
