Polish Frustrations...Any tips?


Today I was planning on doing a new nail look that would be appropriate for Halloween..."was."  I got frustrated.  My plan was to use an Orly Mysterious Curse, and then use a stencil made out of painters' tape and put a little white ghost on...

However, I had major frustration.  After 2 coats on all my nails over my usual base coat, I had major bubbling on every single nail.  Color me unhappy.  I decided to plug on and try my little ghost idea.  That so did not work at all.  I had a hard time getting the tape to stick so I ended up with streaky white blobs.  That stayed on my nails for, oh, all of 1 minute - about enough time to close up the polishes, throw the tape away and open the bottle of remover.

After I took Mysterious Curse (and my blobs) off, I put on Orly's Buried Alive but with no base coat.  I don't have any bubbles, so I'm pretty sure Orly doesn't like my favorite base.  I hesitate to try this with Mysterious Curse since it is so dark and I really don't want to deal with stained nails (if that happens with that polish?).

So, my question is this:  If you use Orly polishes, what base coat do you use?
