        Comments about Essie Fill The Gap! Ridge Smoothing Base Coat:

        Amazing filler!!!! It's worth every penny! I won't trade for anything! Recently I run out of this guy and used some other - OMG! First, didn't make my nail smooth as Essie and my nail polish chipped so quickly and when I wanted to remove it it took me an hour!!! Essie is the best - look no more! You can also wear it without any nail polish because it has that milky very natural nude color.

            The best filler I tried! If you have problems with little nail lines this is for you! I usually put 2 layers (I always do with any nail polish, just a habit) and nail becomes perfection - smooth and shiny! Any nail polish you apply on it will look like $1 million dollars! If you like nail polishes with sequins this is going to be your favorite too! If you have this as base coat - you'll remove the most stubborn sequences! Amazing product!

              I have a few nails that have ridges, this product really makes them smooth. I think the color can be worn alone too.

                  I've only used it once, so I'm still testing it out. So, far it does the purpose of filling in the ridges.

                      This product is so strong I had a terrible headache. Please use this in a WELL ventilated area!!! It really did not fill in my nail ridges and it peeled in just a couple days.

                      Comments about Essie Fill The Gap! Ridge Smoothing Base Coat:

                      This makes a great base coat (or standalone) for peeling, flaking, or ridged nails. A couple coats will fill in deep ridges, leaving a smooth surface that looks natural if worn alone, or helps polish adhere better. It makes my nails nearly as strong and tough as acrylics used to do. The only drawback is it takes a bit of scrubbing with acetone to fully remove it.

                      If I'm wearing polish over it, I can easily remove the polish and leave the basecoat intact, then reapply polish.
