Julep Oxygen Smoothing Base Coat is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good so far I like this so far - just used it one day ago. Nothing on top of it yet. Don't like the small amount for large amount of $. Also, don't like the reviews that say the product turns thick like so many other products where you only really get half of what you purchase. (NOT just QVC products, but a great many nail polishes) Remains to be seen. The smoothing bit is true in my case, have ridges to be smoothed out. Hope it lasts. Like that some other reviewers state that it makes polish easier to remove.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHERE IS QUALITY CONTROL???? Received a half empty bottle. I opened the package to see if the bottle was broken but it wasn't and the product was all dried up. Did someone use this and return it or is it defective? Since the packer did not take a few seconds to check what they were putting in the box, I now am supposed to use their return label that will cost me $6.95 to return something which should have never been shipped out in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificant! First base coat I've ever seen that works this well -- and so differently. It goes on looking glossy--looked over while doing other hand, first one had absorbed into nail, turning a dull matte. It dried in seconds. Also covered up any ridges, vertical lines in nails leaving a smooth finish for polish. I had not rec'd the Julep "Try Me" kit yet, so used my own polish. Then I rec'd the kit --applied the top coat only --didn't want to start from scratch even tho, in this case, that wouldn't have taken much time as the product dries so darn fast ! Top coat, put my hands under lamp as it is light cured, used my 75wt (only suggested a 60 on instructions as it expedites the process) ... Top coat of Julep dried just as fast leaving nails glossy as can possibly get. My base coat,, polish has been on for 4 days, top coat, 2. Nothing has chipped even tho done on separate days. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I'm 63 --nails are brittle esp from H20 ... Get this Ladies :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great polish I purchased this as my current bottle was almost out. I love this not only as a base coat, but a nice mat everyday polish.
