    Comments about Essie Fill The Gap! Ridge Smoothing Base Coat:

    This was horrible. I don't have ridges but wanted a smoother base, so I tried this which belongs to my daughter. I did give it several tries, but it was just useless. And it runs everywhere.

    I love Essie polish but I do wish the applicator brushes were not so small. Having to take several strokes is a disadvantage in a smooth application.

      Comments about Essie Fill The Gap! Ridge Smoothing Base Coat:

      I've recently gotten more serious about keeping my nails in good condition, as I've finally stopped my life-long habit of biting them. However, since it's taken me 21 years to start caring about my nails, they are not in very good condition. They have fairly deep ridges, and are very brittle and dry, and I was growing irritated when I'd give myself a manicure and the ridges would show throw the polish, making my nails look old and dry. I'd heard about this ridge filler treatment, and decided it was worth a shot. I am so happy that I tried it, it works marvelously! I don't have much patience when I do my nails, and I don't like waiting very long for them to dry (I always seem to get an itch somewhere!) and I was very happy to find that this base coat takes seconds to dry--and looks great just on its own, as well! Nail polish looks excellent and shiny on top, there are no traces of the ridges on my nails underneath the nail polish, and they look so professional! My nails also feel much harder and less brittle--much sturdier! I am so much more confident about my how my nails look, and much more invested in keeping them healthy and looking nice now! I am very glad I invested the money into this ridge filler, it is definitely part of my nail care regimin now!

        Comments about Essie Fill The Gap! Ridge Smoothing Base Coat:

        This is the second bottle of this produce I have purchased, because I love it so much! I have a tendency to pick at my nails when they are not painted, which leaves ridges at the edge of my nails. This helps to smooth those out, and also keeps my nails from yellowing from my nail polish. It has a sheer finish, so even if I am not putting color on my nails, I will put on a coat of this and it makes my nails look flawless and clean.

              I love all things Essie, but this product ruined ever manicure. I followed the directions and after applying my polish, all my nails would have bubbles. I had to return it.

              My only concern is how drying the nails are after repeated usage.
              I do love the quick dry feature and the smooth nail look after applying the product.

                  I love giving myself manis/pedis, but I usually don't get a chance to do them until later in the evening as I'm winding down. The problem? Waiting for the polish to dry so that I can go to sleep and not wake up to smudges! Well, this is the answer to my dreams! This product does what it says. I've actually been changing up my mani colors a lot more frequently now, because I no longer feel like it's gotten too close to bedtime to do my nails. I'm hooked!
