Wish I could rate these separately

Despite the typo on my label, I love the “Consealing” (sic) Base Coat. Very smooth finish & lovely hint of color. (5 stars) The Brightening Base Coat went on a bit thick & a little streaky. I might try a little thinner in it, but it reminds me more of a basic ridge filler (3 stars)

Both are really pretty

The Brightening Base Coat needed 2-3 coats before I was happy with it. It went on patchy and streaky but was good once it dried well. The Color Correcting Base Coat applied very well. I did 2 coats and it’s a very pretty light lavender color. Of the 2 base coats, I like this one better.

Love one, less the other

I really enjoy the concealing base coat. It provides a nice, even wash of color that cancels out some of my staining. Unfortunately the brightening base coat is very streaky and I find in difficult to work with.

Great concept but just okay

The whole concept is great. The colors are great they really do even out the color I used the purple one. However I used it with the French tip and it hasn’t been a week yet and the tips are chipping. That’s the problem that I have is the polish doesn’t last very long.

Great set

Do I am 100% in love with the concealing base. It applies great, looks fantastic on. It's my new go to nudish clearish natural look. Gives a slight pink tone. The brightening base not as much. If it would apply without streaking it would be better. I can get it to not streak in maybe a mil or two but even going slowly it mostly has lines when applied.
