Rated 1 out of 5 by from UGH! No longer works well! I have been using this formula for nearly 20 years and USED to love it! I have a pink/white acrylic manicure and loved how this gave my nails a "pop" of brightness - the pink was a bit brighter and the white sparkled. BUT.... They have changed the formula and this is now a TERRIBLE product. My nails yellowed literally as I was applying it. I thought maybe I hadn't dried my hands thoroughly, or had something on them. But, nope! My gut was right - after doing some research it is apparent that they have changed what was a great formula and honestly the only nail polish I have been using for decades. Now I am on the hunt for something (anything!) better. So disappointed. (And it took about three coats to get the polish nice & shiny.) Just no - save your money and use something else!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please return the old formula I’d loved this from 1998 until 2019. In 2019 this formula changed from a product that gave a clean, fresh whitening effect that simultaneously prevented yellowing into a chipping, useless clear coat that does NOTHING to prevent yellowing. As a matter of fact, it seems to CAUSE yellowing. Either take it off the market all together or make it the useful product that it once was, PLEASE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHAT HAPPENED??? I too have used this for years and it's completely different. My nails are more yellow than if I'd used a plain top coat. FAKE PRODUCT? CHANGED FORMULA? WHAT'S GOING ON?? The original formula worked like a dream. I'd buy it at Sally's all the time. Something is seriously wrong, very different. DOESN'T WORK AT ALL AND ACTUALLY TURNED THE NAILS YELLOW ON EVERYONE WHO I APPLIED IT TO. NOW I'M DEALING WITH CHARGEBACKS AND COMPLAINTS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They changed the formula! Get the old one back! I agree, I used this for many many years to brighten up my pink and whites and also on top of any polish... just made everything pop with a clean fresh look. Now I notice the bottle doesn’t say up protect and is clear instead of the almost iridescent violet hue... turns my nails yellow! My nail tech noticed it as soon as I used the new bottle. Please get the other back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be magic and formula changed, yellows! I just put older purplish tinted UV block on one nail and the new on another of my pink and white acrylics, new turned it dull instead of vibrant .. have used for about 10:years over all polishes as top coat and made it pop! My nail tech said this time, what did you do your whites are yellow! So upset. Don’t mess with a good thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have used yellow stopper for years!! It always worked great until recently. My nail tech and I both bought bottles and my nails immediately turned yellow. I compared bottles from previously purchased and there is an obvious difference. My new bottle is clear and the older one has a purplish hue. So something has changed, I have NEVER had this problem until now!!! Hope this is just a bad batch because that is the only polish I use!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It helps! 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so so I tried this product yesterday for the first time and today it began to peel off,have'nt tanned yet so not sure if it does stop yellowing yet! It does make nails very shiny and dries very fast but it's suppose to be a top coat as well as base but if it peels off maybe it should not be labeled as a TOP COAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff i use this over my french manicures and it keeps them white and pink.always wear it on my does give of a purple tint that doesnt really stand out, but makes it all look really great.wouldnt do one without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I never do a French Manicure without this. I don't think it does a great job as a final top coat as far as protecting from chipping, but I use this between the pink/white and my top coat. It has a slight almost ghostly light purple tinge/glow, but this is the secret that makes your white tips really pop! My white tips are super super white and they stay that way! This is a staple product for me.
