        Best product I have found to help with Ridges that are so bad they cause bad splitting...I will be taking it to my professional appts. for them to use as a base coat. Around the house I always have at least one coat on even without polish. Great product.

        Disappointed, it's no different than a base coat.

          Easy to apply, dried quickly, helped nail polish go on easier and last longer. Great product compared to others I have tried that had a very strong scent. Would recommend to anyone who has nails that split.

                    Inspired by my sister-in-law's dedication to a perfect at-home manicure, I have been experimenting with "behind the scenes" products (read: not the nail color itself) that will improve the job. My new holy trinity is Essie RFBC, China Glaze Fast Forward top coat and Sally Hansen Nail Nutrition Green Tea + Soy Cuticle Oil. The base coat was my first major discovery - it dries quickly, leaves nails positively smooth and provides just the right amount of grip for your nail color. I've tried to cheap out with other base coats and always go back to Essie.

                    Comments about Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat:

                    Used this up, mostly being stubborn, but I didn't see any major improvement in nail appearance over any other base coat. And it didn't offer any other benefits, manicures didn't last noticeably longer, etc. It does look nice on its own, it has a shiny neutral finish for a professional-looking, nude nail.

                    If your nails are -really- ridgy its possible this could help you, but I have ridges in my nails when my iron is low and I can't imagine relying on this alone to make nails appear smooth. A light buff once in a while plus a regular or strengthening basecoat is my go-to method and I frequently get asked if my nails are professionally done.

                    In all, I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase this.
