    I bought it for the perceived benefits of a nail hardener and base coat. Well I was pleasantly surprised by the color and liked the natural look. I received several compliments on it.

      I use this often after taking off my acrylics and it helps to protect and heal my thinned out nails. It also works fantastically as a base coat!

          With this base my manicure lasts 7 to 10 days. I type for a living and it works great. Helps my nails grow. Keeps them looking nice. Make sure not to apply too thick. Great product.

              Love this base coat! So much less toxic and harsh than my old favorite, seche vite. Beats seche as far as longevity. Very happy with the purchase.

                Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

                I noticed a huge difference within 2 days after the first use. I unfortunately have naturally VERY weak and thin nails that bend easily. No vitamin has ever helped this. I use gel polish often and it makes my weak nails even weaker... So when I needed to give my nails a break, I decided to look for something that'd help strengthen while "naked". This stuff is amazing. It does chip/scrape easily for me (I have oily nails, so I always expect regular non-gel polish to chip anyway), so I've been applying a fresh coat once every few days. It probably wouldn't work good as a base coat for me under regular polish, but I'm going to try it under gel and see how it does. My nails have grown out quite a bit already in the last week and they're NOT bending! Woop woop.
