It’s horrible. Sally Hansen’s Double Duty top & base coat is just horrible! Absolutely atrocious.
After picking this up for the first time a couple of days ago, I’ve used it twice. Twice because I had to completely redo my mani after a positively shitty first go ’round with this craptastic top & base coat. It just wasn’t hardening/drying. I did the ice water trick. I did the cooking spray trick. The hair dryer. The waving my hands around in the air like I just don’t care method. But I did care; I cared a lot that this was ruining my new nail color’s maiden voyage. (Essie‘s limited edition neon collection’s Serial Shopper. – I love it.)
I removed it all and started again the next day, yesterday. This time, I used exceptionally thin coats each and every layer. I even waited a substantial amount of time in between each coat. Still, after applying that final layer, the top coat, it wouldn’t dry!!! I ended up applying a coat of acrylic sealer I had laying around from forever ago. It worked and I was able to enjoy celebrating my best friends birthday on the beach all day. No thanks to Sally.
Long story, short: skip this “Double Duty” base & top coat from Sally Hansen’s.
