    Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

    I like that you can use this both alone or as a base coat. It's a very opaque nude-pink color. It'd be a great base for a french mani! It makes my polish glide on much smoother and, like all Essie products, my mani lasts for a good solid week. If you have the infamous weak and peeling nails like I do--use this product. You won't regret it!

              I have very weak nails and just needed something that works. This is a great pink and I can wear it alone.

                I have been using this product for about 5 years. I used to have really weak nails. My nails are now as strong as acrylics. I use this as a base, 2 coats of an Essie polish and then Essie Gel topcoat and I am good for a week. It's a wonderful product. You can also use it as a clear polish.

                    This is the first base coat I've ever bought.

                    I had high hopes since I love Essie's topcoat very much, and I think this base coat is not too bad.
                    My only complaint is that it made the nail polish on my thumb peel off a few days later. The other fingers were fine, so I think it's just a fluke.

                    (I'm not sure how effective it is at strengthening nails because I need to use it more for sure).

                    This doesn't last so long & chips off due to my nails being fragile. I even used Seche Vite to top it off. I hope that my next attempt with Orly will be better.
