Yellow Stopper Top Coat
I use this as a base coat and helps with the nail polish staining my nails. Also noticed it helps keep my nail polish on longer.

I love doing my nails, but over time they did turn a nasty shade of yellow. I purchased this to help combat that problem. I had read reviews that stated it was not a good topcoat, and would make your nail polish peel off. I have yet to experience that. I use this as a base coat. I apply 2 coats and let them fully dry before proceeding with my manicure. On top of this I use a nail strengthening base coat. Once that is completely dry I do my nails as usual. I have not had any issues and my nails have not become more stained.

It does stop the yellow but...
does not work well as a base coat. I bought this in-store, where there is no obvious indication that it's a top coat. I suppose if I had thought more about the "UV Protection" part I would have realized that. The usage tips do indicate that it can be used as a basecoat though, so I'm reviewing for others with my idea. This *absolutely DID protect* against polish stains on my nails. It did not correct the pre-existing stains, but I wasn't expecting it to. The huge problem is my polish would no longer adhere properly (even with various layering trials with bonder) so after a couple days I'd start losing entire nails of polish - it looked like a press-on nail came off. Has anyone else had this issue? Can anyone attest to it preventing dark polish stains when used as a topcoat?

I Really Like It!
I really like this top coat. When applied over my clear base coat (Sesche Vite) has a glossy finish with a slight tint of color, like a light lavender. Really pretty! This top coat doesn’t peel easily and protects my nail color for at least a week. Also, I think the nail polish that the top coat is covering is an important factor when it comes to peeling and chipping issues. For example, my Orly polish is terrible – the top coat can’t even keep it on. However, my China Glaze and Maybelline 50 second dry REALLY last under this top coat. I have a 1 year old and 3 year old at home so my nails are constantly put in vulnerable situations. This polish keeps nails clear – no yellowing after my polish is removed. I usually try to alternate between a week of color and a week of base coat/top coat, no color. This product definitely does what it says!
