Gelish MINI Foundation Base Gel creates a double covalent bond to the nail plate. It creates the adhesion between the natural keratin in the nail plate and the artificial gel products. The chemistry is designed to work with various oligomer type products to create the same covalent bond. Cure Time is 10 seconds with a LED Light or 1 minute using a UV Light*.


*Minimum 36 Watt UV Light is recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best base coat ever! I have tried them all. I saved this for last because $22 seems ridiculous but now I get it. Before, I would get chips within 1-3 days and have to use gloves to wash dishes. Now I can go a week or more with no chips or lifting and no gloves. I use a cheaper top coat for now (ASP) and this is still teflon strong. It's also helping my nails grow longer. I bought the vitamin version from Amazon for half the price but after a while, the bottle got too thick and started to clump. I have not experienced that with this. I am not a professional (yet), just a gel aficionado with family clients.My only complaint is the bottle is too small. I don't understand the mini thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best foundation gel polish! I've been doing my own gel polish for years and thi is the best foundation I've used. It is nice and thick so it easily covers any imperfections. It goes on nice and smooth. I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, low quality packaging, very costly I have been using the gelish line continously for approximately 7 years. I am very pleased with the results of the gelish line. However, I have noticed that the last few times I have purchased the foundation and top it off product, the bottle cap screws on crooked, causing the product to become exposed to air and "clump." This forces another purchase and I have to discard a product that should still be available to use. It seems the gelish base and tip line quality have decreased, while the cost continues to increase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So-so at best and definitely overpriced. It's important to find a quality base coat otherwise removing your gel polish will ruin your nails. I tried the ASP brand at a Sally Beauty employee's recommendation and that was an awful experience. I then took a shot on the SUPER pricey Gellish base coat and top coat to find my experience removing gel polish greatly improved; HOWEVER, the foundation AND top coat thicken up SO quickly. I've even had to return bottles that I bought in the store bc I didn't check how thick they were prior to purchasing them. Ugh! A different Sally Beauty employee said that Gellish foundation and top coats are notorious for doing this, especially in warmer weather Additionally, the brushes become hard (and unusable) quickly. Yeah, I know not to paint my nails in front of an open window, etc, etc, etc. These still thicken and freeze up. I now use the OPI brand and am supremely pleased with the outcome.

Even though I use this product the gel polish still peels off my nails in a few days . Any suggestions?

In addition to the suggestions given make sure you file the nail bed. Not buff as that leaves a smooth nail. You'll want to have the nail a little course but don't hurt yourself. This allows the foundation to seep into the groves for a perfect bond!
