This review is on Bonder, a base coat from the brand ORLY. I usually purchase my bottles of Bonder from Sally Beauty Supply, just because I have the discount card, so it’s slightly cheaper than if I purchased it from CVS or Walgreens. I also by my Seche Vite FastDry Top Coat from Sally’s as well, I’ll be covering that in another review.
When you look at Bonder, you will first notice that the liquid is not clear, but a yellowish orange color, but don’t worry, it applies clear and does not interfere with the color of your polish. I however never really wear light, pastel colors on my nails, so I can’t vouch for those colors. But for darker, more vibrant colors there are no problems. The formula is very thin, it’s very easy to apply to your nails and it dries fast, so you don’t have to sit there waiting for your base coat to dry.
Understand one thing – my nails HATE polishes of all kinds. I’ll put a polish on in the morning and it will look like hell that night. Bonder magically, at least it seems to me to be magic, keeps the polish on my nails for 4 to 5 days with very slight chipping. For me that is a BIG, BIG, BIG deal! I’ve used Seche Vite’s clear base coat and it made my polish peel off in one piece, the same day I applied it.
There isn’t much more to say about ORLY Bonder only that it is like SUPERGLUE for nailpolish. If you are having problems with nail polish and think all is hopeless, do yourself a huge favor and get this base coat!!
