Most Helpful Positive Review Great base!
I purchased this not so much for its ridge filling properties but to serve as a base for my very sheer everyday polish which is Zoya's Lucy. Lucy is a sheer milky white that is my perfect color but needs a little something underneath to avoid going 3 coats. Dermelect's filler fit in the bill just perfectly. It has a cool undertoned, bluish toned iridescent slight tint to it which is just the perfect combination with my polish. To top it off it also makes my manis last a few days longer than usual. So overall very happy with this product, it's my first from this line, I do plan on trying others in the future. And while it is on a pricier side it is worth every penny because it delivers, is cruelty free and free of some of the typical harsh chemicals found in other nail products. I chose it over others, after trying ridge fillers by OPI, ORLY, and a few other brands from Sally's Beauty.
Most Helpful Critical Review Made my nails much worse
Very disappointed! I have seriously ridged and dry nails. I've been using Dermelect Makeover as directed for about 6 weeks and my nails are worse than ever. My two thumb nails have split vertically, which has never happened before. I had such high hopes, but am incredibly disappointed, especially since I paid $16 and my nails are much worse now.

this product has made my soft ridge filled nails look amazing and now HEALTHY!
Best ridge filler I've tried
Nailed Em from Cincinnati, OH
I used 2 coats as a base to use under my nail polish. Went on smoothly, no odor and very sheer. I have very deep ridges and this is the only ridge filler I've used that hides them. I use sheer nail color with this base coat so my ridges vanish. Well worth the money.
Whitney W. from Tucson, AZ, USA
I've been using this for the last couple of years now, and I honestly never knew my nails could look so healthy or naturally beautiful until this came into my life! I don't know what I'd do without it, and I don't even wear colored nail polish any more because I just love how pretty my own nails are. (I do two coats and a clear coat, and typically go two to three weeks between touch-ups.) I'm a believer and a fan for life!!
I would buy this again!

Saved my nails , after removing my gel manicure .
Felicia from Holbrook New York
I would definitely order this product again . Due to the current Pandemic, and not being able to go to the salon, this product was easy to apply and I feel it is giving my nails nourishment they need .
Not worth it
Dawn from Hendersonville, TN
I used this product for 6 weeks. I would remove it and reapply as the polish wore off. Instead of helping my ridges, it made my nails dry and even more brittle. My nails even turned yellow. Now the polish just sits in my bathroom. It's just a waste of money
May buy it again unless something better comes out there.
Vi from Brentwood
Haven't noticed anything yet if it does what it says. But I can tell you that I love the pearly sheen look with just one application. Although after one week, the color starts to peel in certain areas, maybe due to doing a lot of washing hands and doing dishes and other housework's.
Ruined my nails
Not the happy customer from Missouri
This took my thin, but normal-looking nails, and destroyed them. They have peeled so badly that I had to cut them to nubs.
Great product !
Dog rescue mom from Michigan
Have tried many ridge fillers and this is the best !
Love the way it looks without polish just a hint of shimmer and it's a green product.
BEST base coat ever
Sara from Stillwater
Even if you dont need ridge filler (i dont) this base coat will make your nails feel so so strong! When i use it under my polish (i mainly use KL polish) my nails wont chip for a while which i really appreciate. My mom borrowed it and also fell inlove so im gonna buy her some before going back home (theres no ulta in my country)
Marina from Fredericksburg
Does the job.
Nothing Else Compares
Sam from Washington DC
I received this nail polish in a subscription box, and have been buying it ever since. It is a sheer nude color, subtle and chic. My nails were damaged and thin from acrylic nails and this has helped so much. Now my nails are stronger and don't bend, chip, or break. I have tried other nail treatments, like Julep, and this is by far the best. The polish drys very fast, after a minute the first coat is dry and can't be smudged. It stays on for a long time. I wash my hand frequently, and it doesn't come off. After 2 weeks the polish on the tips of my nails will wear off, but it never peels off. This is my 3rd bottle, the one con I have is that when the bottle is at 1/4 full or so, the nail polish will 'dry' up and will be harder to spread evenly and will take longer to dry. I never write review, that's how much I love this polish. Easy, quick and classy.
I don't want to be without this!
shellsangeltail from Atlanta, GA
I received this in a subscription box and have had it on my nails since the first time I tried it a few months ago. I remove it ever few days and apply 2 fresh coats. It stays on my nails until I remove it, through excessive daily hand washing. No product I've ever used on my nails has done that. The color is a pretty iridescent nude and looks almost like a natural French manicure. I love this stuff so much... It has strengthened my nails to the degree that I've started filing them in a new shape and never have breakage. I will repurchase this as long as it is available.
JoMarie from KC.Mo
This is a really good nail treatment...also gives nails a gloss/shine. It impressed me.
Buzz from Bovey MN
I use this with launchpad and my nails look much healthier when I remove polish, moistured and clean, not dull looking.
I will buy this again and again!!
Jen from PA
Love this stuff!
This is the only product that ever worked for me.
Joni from Greenville, NC
I've used so many products through the years. And, I have the bag of nail wear to prove it. But this product WORKS. It actually stays on through frequent handwashing.
Great ridge filler
Andi G from Grayslake il
I use this as a base coat. My polish goes on smoother
Best product ever!!!
Do-Dah from Bridgeport, WV
So glad I found this ridge filler. Have tried many products without good results. This one really works and lasts a week or more. It really smooths out the vertical ridges so they are not noticeable. Looks pretty on nails too!
worth every penny
Jessica from Morehead City
after years of salon nails, I decided to go natural. my nails were weak and broke and cracked constantly. this came in a fabfitfun box and I figured I would try it before just throwing it out. it is absolutely amazing!!! it evens all the ridges out and makes my nails a lot stronger. I paint my nails every week and this is my base coat. I have been using this for about 6 months (I'm on my 3rd bottle) and I notice a complete difference. I never thought I would have strong nails after years of damage. I will keep buying this every other month. you will not be disappointed!
No words to express how amazing this works!
Lisa W from Oregon, USA
First, I was a life long nail biter until last year. One of the reasons I bit my nails was because they were always brittle and thin. I have had acrylic nails for 25+ years and everytime I tried to grow it my nails, I ended up biting them within a week or so. For my 43rd birthday, I decided enough was enough. I spent A LOT of money on nail polishes from Zoya and OPI and started pampering my nails. I found an amazing top coat that prevented chips (Thanks Seche Vite! You really are the best on the market!) But I still had trouble with a base coat. Every one I tried was too drying, or made my polish look bumpy, or peeled too soon.
Enter my FabFitFun box. I received it and I nearly gave this miracle in a bottle away! I decided to give it a try and couldn't believe how beautiful it was by itself. After a second coat, I realized how smooth and healthy my nails looked. It was fast drying and lasts a week easily with no top coat! I love to wear it by itself when I'm feeling natural, or in a hurry but when I do wear it under a polish, my nails look as if I had them professionally painted. I am now on my 3rd bottle of this "Makeover" and I can credit my year long ability to finally break my nail biting habit on this product. My nails are healthy, strong and beautiful because I apply this once or twice a week under polish or by itself. I love the slight pink shimmer, the quick drying formula and smoothing effect on my natural nails. This is my first review in over a year but I had to rave about how much I appreciate and love Dermalect's Makeover. I will NEVER stop using this! Thanks so much for helping me break a lifelong habit and making me look beautiful at the same time! Trust me, you'll love it as much as I do....It's worth every penny!
I love this stuff!!!
MicheleC from Phoenix, AZ
I received a sample of this in a beauty box. Immediately I was in love. Natural nails look yellowish and truthfully they creep me out. This product looks awesome by itself. My nails grow like crazy and look healthy. I stocked up and don't think I will use a color/regular polish or get a gel/acrylic manicure ever again. This product is all I need.
Best polish ever
Lu from Slc,Utah
I'm a nail biter- this product makes my nails thick and pretty and deters me from biting my nails. I've never come across another polish like this!
MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE
Slimlzbn from Chicago
I used this for about a month and there was an extreme difference in the health of my nails. Not to mention the growth! It is expensive but worth it and let's be real I'm cheap lol.
Best nail product ever!
Wendy from Austin, TX
This is hands down the greatest nail product I've ever used. It has completely changed my nails from damaged, brittle and thin to strong and long and healthy. My favorite thing about this product is the color. I'm so in love with it and I wish the sold it as a color. I'd buy a bucket full if I could. I cannot wait to try your other products!
