      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Smooth & Strength Base Coat:

      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!!

      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Smooth & Strength Base Coat:

      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.

              Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Smooth & Strength Base Coat:

              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

              Not worth the money

              Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Smooth & Strength Base Coat:

              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!

                Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Smooth & Strength 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.

                  I thought this would help my nail polish last longer but, it made it chip within one day. I even used it with Sally Hansen nail polish. Not worth it.

                  It seemed nice to apply. I haven't changed my diet or anything else and my nails have gotten to weak since using this product that they keep breaking and are so short they hurt.

                    This is great as a base coat, smooths out the ridges and helps polish stay on longer.
