Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat

I bought Sally Hansen Double Duty a month ago in Boots and have used it consistently ever since.

Let me start off by saying that I am usually a bit lazy when it comes to base and top coats. To be honest I’m lucky if my nail polish dries without a dint of some sort. I’m very fidgety and find it difficult to sit still long enough for layers to dry.

I have tried a few different base coats and haven’t found one that was useful. The worst being the Boots Expert base coat which made my polish peel off.

I bought mine on special – buy one Sally Hansen product and get the second half price. I choose the nail hardener as my second item, review to follow on that one.

Back to Double Duty. I apply one coat before my nail polish and one coat after.

My conclusions:

1. It keeps my nail polish chip free for days

2. It prevented my nails from yellowing after days of dark polish

3. A little sticky until completely dry but not enough to mess up your nails

It’s also cheap… in most countries. Ireland as per usual has a disgusting hefty mark-up so if it’s not on special you can buy it for €2.50 on ebay. I wouldn’t pay more! But I shall be repurchasing.

What nail bases and topcoats do you recommend?
