I use Zoya Anchor base coat, or sometimes an OPI base coat. I use Sally Hansen top coat (the one that you can also use as a base coat). I wait about two minutes between coats. I apply thin coats of color so sometimes I have to use three coats. Then I top the whole situation with a quick dry top coat - I think right now I have an OPI version.

I got Sarah, Cheryl, and Drew.
