            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.

                  Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

                  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).

                  Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

                  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.

                    LOVE this stuff. I'm particularly hard on my nails but I use this constantly on its own or as a base coat/top coat and it helps me prevent splitting, cracking and peeling.
