    Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

    My nails were peeling and splitting terribly. I kept them cut short with polish but the nails still split. I have been using the Essie protein base coat for 2 weeks now and have no more splitting or peeling. This product is the answer to a prayer.

        I started using this product at the nail spa to help grow my nails, a year now and my nails are fully grown and strong. I recommend this product for anyone who's trying to grow their nails.

              Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

              I generally have dry nails but this product keeps them hydrated and healthy. I use it as a base coat, but am addicted to red nail polish which tends to stain nails even if a base coat is applied but this one protects them from the harsh effects of wearing color on top.

                Comments about Essie Protein Base Coat:

                I purchased this product after removing my acrylic nails. My natural nails were peeling and damaged, and I wore this on it's own to protect and strengthen them. It really worked, and it has a slight milky tint which helped camoflauge the damage. I like it as a base coat too.
