Rated 5 out of 5 by Miracle in a bottle! I bought this about a month ago because I am genetically plagued with weak nails; no matter the vitamins I take or how gentle I am with my hands, my nails always split and break. A friend told me that a strengthening base coat would help my manicure last. This product does all of that and more! Using this base coat extends the life of my manicure by several days, while protecting the nail underneath and helping it grow and not break. It is good to use on its own or with nail polish on top. This was my first Essie product and I am extremely pleased with it; would recommend to anyone. 10/07/2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I bought this nail polish because I needed a strengthener as well as a base coat. It looked nice on my nails, and two coats looked really nice. So far it hasn't changed much in my nail's strength, but it did fill in ridges. 11/16/2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buying is believing I bought this item on a Saturday, applied one coat then used "Sugar Daddy" along w/ the Essie Gel Setter top coat and AHHHMAZING!!! I have gotten compliments from women at lunch and the grocery story asking who did my gel manicure...moi! Thee Best besst 11/18/2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chips and peels I don't know what I'm doing wrong here, but this is worse than no base coat at all. I clean my nails, use this base coat, essie color, and essie top coat (good to go) and the very next day it is peeling. I'm so perplexed, flummoxed even! It has such good reviews everywhere but it is definitely not doing me any favors. 10/30/2015
