Orly Nail Armor Liquid Silk Wrap
Favorite Base Coat
I'm on my second bottle of Nail Armor, and still in love. It's the only base coat I've ever used that completely prevents staining, even with my most stain-prone polishes.
It does seem to provide a little extra strength to my nails, too - they almost never seem to break when I use this. It also seems very durable, and my nail polish almost always lasts until I take it off, but then I change my polish up to twice a week, and I don't usually have chipping issues with any base coat I use, so make of that what you will.
It does seem to take a little long to dry, but I've never really had a problem polishing over it before it's fully dry, so that's okay.
I probably wouldn't wear it alone, as it dries to a satin finish, and the little fibers in it are visible, as texture. Once you polish over it, though, everything is completely smooth, and it doesn't affect the finish in the least.
Overall, great product that I will continue to use and repurchase for the foreseeable future.

it is a little weird because you can see the little fibers but leaves your nails super smooth ready too look amazing under your color
