works very well with the nailpure base coat. dries quickly. may peel if you apply layers too thick. have not tried with nailkale base coat yet....Great for base coat not top coat but the brand it self for colored nail polish is great

What it does:
This limited-edition nail polish set features six easy-to-wear, rosy-nude shades. Each one flatters all skin tones—from light to dark, and from cool to warm tones.


The colors go very good together. I did not apply a base coat, just 2 coats of NAILS INC. on each nail, and another brand of nail polish for the top coat. ...Great polish. I used 2 coats of polish and a base coat to get a nice rich color.
