    Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

    I've tried multiple different nail products to keep my nails from splitting and get them to grow and strengthen. I've been using this for a few years now because it helps them grow so fast AND it has this pretty rosy tint that give my nails a polished natural look.

    Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

    Horrible! This didn't help my nails grow but instead it made then break and crack. I used it multiple time to test it out and also used this on my mom and every time it was horrible.

                    This base coat keeps my nail polish on much longer than any I've tried. My nails are not breaking- even though I continue abusing my manicure by not wearing gloves to pull weeds, wash dishes or scrub up the grill!

                      Comments about Essie Grow Stronger Base Coat:

                      I bought it for the perceived benefits of a nail hardener and base coat. Well I was pleasantly surprised by the color and liked the natural look. I received several compliments on it.

                        I use this often after taking off my acrylics and it helps to protect and heal my thinned out nails. It also works fantastically as a base coat!
