Didn't really help my nails. It was a regular base coat.
Didn't help my nails grow at all, strengthens them a minuscule amount and takes a while to dry and stays tacky for quite a time. Does leave a nice subtle pink on the nails though but hardly noticeable. Wouldn't purchase again as its not worth the money, (I paid £8.99) but everyone's nails are different so it may work for you. :)
I love this! It has restored my nails so much! My nails are now decent without nail polish, after having used acetone to remove my nail polish (which I still do, because it's so effective). But using this as a base coat everytime I repaint my nails has been so beneficial for me, and now my nails are nice, long, and healthy looking, despite my constant nail painting and removing.
I swear by this base coat. I use to have nails that break or split easily and I can never grow my nails out. Ever since I've been using this product, my nails are SO much stronger and healthier. I even have friends that think my nails are fake now! The only reason I have this product an overall rating of 4 is because I'm halfway through the bottle and it is starting to get goopy. I would have to shake it up real good before applying it to my nails.
This is a terrible product! It does NOT grow nails stronger. In fact, it does the complete opposite: it makes them super brittle! This product, I believe is around $8.99... there are definitely better products out there, like Formula 2 by Nailtiques for around the same price. This is just really a disappointing product. I expected more from Essie.
I thought I'd give this a try: my nails are weak and peeling. Also, I never expected it to miraculously make me have really long nails, no. I've never seen something that worked that great, to be honest.
My expectations were: to make the peeling stop and stronger the nails just so they won't break. Right now I'm through half the bottle, and I'd say this does absolutely nothing. It is almost like my nails actually started to peel more than they did before this base, so I am going to change it asap.
The only nice thing about this basecoat is that it dries quickly, makes the nail polish stay on longer and keeps nails from getting yellow from bright-coloured polishes.
This made my nails grow faster. I could actually feel them growing! But it also made my nails so brittle, and made them break more easily than before. I did not overuse it. It dried very fast, and made the nail polish stay without chipping for up to one week.
Hasnt worked at all and my nail Polish is still tacky days after using this.
My nails are so weak. They break, chip, peel, etc. They never grow long because they are so weak. I bought this and not only has it made my nails MUCH stronger, but my nails are already growing longer after 2 applications :) Clear, so it makes for a very pretty natural look.
Well I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the way I put it on, or if I've bought multiple "lemons".
I'm not sure about the whole "dries super fast" bit...sometimes yes, but sometimes it's still able to be dented or whatever. A second coat within an hour just doesn't work-stays malleable. When I put an Essie polish with color, tiny bubbles seem to come to the surface and dry. Really annoying.
Any tips or suggestions are appreciated.
