            Comments about Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat:

            I injured my nail bed so part of my nail is missing right now (gross I know)... but this product completely fills in the gap. It creates an even base in a nude hue so it can be worn alone. Seems to work well with nail polish, but my priority was its filling properties.

              My nails are in rough shape from years of accrilics. Weak, brittle and uneven are just some of my woes and as a nail polish addict that never bodes well for beautiful color. This ridge filler not only fills in my divits but has improved my overall nail strength tenfold. I use this product every week when changing color and I have not once had a nail break or chip which is a miracle for me! Definitely a must have in any nail polish arsenal!

                Comments about Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat:

                I love all Essie products, but recently fell in love with this base coat. I had removed acrylics and was trying to help my nails recover. Anyone who has had acrylic or gel nails knows the damage they can do, so when I gave myself my first mani after all of that damage, there where some uneven spots on my nails (especially where the bottom of the acrylics had been) and this base coat filled in all those weird ridges and made my polish look smooth without all the buffing and thinning of my nails. Highly recommend!

                  Comments about Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat:

                  I have used many other ridge fillers and base coats. Essie is excellent, even with only one coat, in making either a perfect foundation for regular polish, or looking great on its own.

                    Comments about Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat:

                    I don't know if my ridges are particularly severe or minor, so I can't tell you exactly how well this product works. However, applying it after my usual ridge-tackling routine (I use a 7-way nail buffer to do my best to smooth the nail, but it doesn't do much of anything), it made my nails very smooth!

                    I didn't notice the "orange" color that other reviewers' mentioned, but it did seem to enhance my nails' natural color (or the previous nail polish color I couldn't get off entirely).

                    You could *definitely* wear this nail polish alone - it's a lovely neutral shade & a smooth painting surface.
