      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).

      Overrated Strong Base Coat.

      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.

        This is the best polish I've found for my real nails! Mine are thin and break easily and this nail polish makes your nails stronger and last longer. I've tried everything from nailtek, to orly and it all comes off when they've been exposed to water for awhile. Buy it! U won't be sorry

          Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

          I use this base coat combined with OPI nail envy under all my manicures. I use nail envy first then grow stronger over it. Polish adheres great to it and my manicures last longer and my nails are significantly stronger than they used to be. I highly recommend this product to anyone with weak or peeling nails or anyone who wants a longer manicure life. Grow Stronger also has a great natural looking color for when you want the naked nail look but with the protection of polish.

            My nails were splitting something awful! After two applications of Grow Stronger Base Coat by Essie, they have stopped! Love the soft shine it gives my nails & it's very durable.

            Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

            I just left a review on the Millionails as well because I have been using both products together for 3 weeks and am in love. I use the Millionails underneath the Grow Stronger and have noticed significant difference in my nails. I am a nail biter and am trying to stop, and within a week of wearing the two combined my nails grew a lot. When I wear the Grow Stronger as my nail color, I do paint a new coat on about every other day for a week and you get a pretty nice nude nail color. The polish did not chip at all within that week. When using the Millionails and the Grow Stronger underneath another Essie colored polish and a top coat, your nails look like you have a gel manicure. No chipping for at least a few days, too!

              Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

              I have very weak nails. They always peel in layers and break off every time I try to grow them out. After putting on the Grow Stronger base coat, I noticed a difference. My nails were a little harder and the peeling layers became invisible. However, after a week or so (the normal time a nail polish begins to wear), the peeling began and the nails started to break. So basically, it works well. However it is not a long term fix.

                I've always gotten acrylic nails but with my new job I type alot more so I switched to this in 2 weeks I actually have had my nails grow and they are really song. I'm so impressed I never thought my nails would grow like this saving hundreds.
