Review Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat

I recently went on the hunt for a long lasting top and base coat.  I was just really tired of my nail polish chipping in one day and knew there had to be better alternatives than what I was using.  I do realize that a lot of it has to do with body chemistry and what job you work, if you use your hands a lot, etc., etc.  However I wanted to branch out and try something different.  I frequently hear people say, try (insert name here) brand they last the longest, but for me, nothing worked.

While browsing Sally's website I came across a product that I had seen in the store many times, but never bothered to pick up.  I read the reviews and decided to give it a shot.  It is Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat. This is marketed as a top coat, however I use it as both a base and top coat.  It is very thick, almost a gel and can be difficult to dry if you use it alone as a top coat, so I suggest using a quick drying top coat on top. I tried it on many looks but decided to take a picture of my recent manicure which I actually still have on today, 9 days later.  The picture consist of:  
1. base coat of Gelous - 
2. Orly's Life's A Peach (2 coats) - 
3. Hare Polish Own Your Opulence (1 coat) - 
4. one coat of Gelous - 
5. one coat of Seche Vite top coat.   

This product actually works at maintaining your manicure, the picture below is after 7 days with barely any shrinkage or chipping.  
little or no tip wear after 7 days
This product is relatively cheap at under $4.00 and in my opinion well worth a try.
