Questions & Answers for Formula X PRIME - Base Coat

Question
What color is it?
Is the base coat really a coral? (Like the picture?)
Is the color visible when applying it? Does it look opaque?
Does it dry to a clear or is there a tint?

Thank you - thinking this may help, as I don't always get "clear" on the full nail bed.

The polish does look bright pink in the bottle, but I find that it dries perfectly clear. It has some shine to it, but I wouldn't call it glossy and don't think id want to wear it alone. But, it is definitely clear and not pink.

Hi CaitlintheFish, this product does have a slight pink hue when applied to your natural nail. The color does not interfere with any polish applied over-top of it.
