Clear coats between the base and the crackle layer may help, but AFAIK, the formula is designed to crack the paint layer, so the only thing that would prevent the base from being affected is a barrier.

Do you allow the base layer to dry completely before putting the crackle on? What exactly do you mean by it "attacks" the base layer? I'm going to do a little experimenting on my own nails and hopefully, I'll have a better answer for you within the next few days. :)
