          This is the last step of my manicure. It makes my polish last 7-10 days and keeps my nails strong.

              After having on fake nails for three months I decided in middle of the night I was tired of them and bit them all off. Which led to the top layer of my nails being ripped off making them look thin, cracked and "peely" As a server I was embarrassed to go into work the next day since everyone one of my customers would see my ugly nails. I found this product in hopes that it would fix my temporary problem. And it did went of smooth and dried fast and now except for the extream nail shortest my nails look amazing and nothing like the damage I did to them.

                I was actually looking for an Essie base coat when I came across this gem. I just put it on this morning and it went on really easily and dried quickly. I even hit one of my nails with one of my other fingers when I was putting the cover back on so I quickly added another coat just in case and it smoothed its self out!! My nails are so smooth and shiny!!

                Claims to be 90% effective with the first use...not so much. No have ridges in my nails and this improved them about 40%, which I appreciate as an improvement, but I expected more from the packaging claims. I would recommend it only because there was some improvement, but don't expect a miracle.

                        Have used both as a strengthener and a base coat. Works better as a smooth base coat for me, but does offer some protection against breaking. Only major downside was long term adherence. Once my hands got wet the whole coat would peel off

                        I bought this and it made my nails chip either the same day or the very next day. My nail polish would just lift and peel right off. I returned it and got my money back thankfully. I do not recommend this base coat!

                          It's been a while since I use this brand's top or base coats, and I'm reminded why. This stuff was awful. It does go on very smoothly, and dries fast, but that's the only good things about it. I've notice my nails have peeled way more than usual, so it's not helping with that at all. Also, I've tried this with 5 different nail polishes (different colors/textures/brands), and every single time I use this, the polish starts peeling off with in two days. Not chipping, peeling. Like the whole dang polish peels of my nail in one or two chunks. I've NEVER had that happen. Will not buy again.
