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.

      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.
