I'm not a big fan of essie but with the sephora OPI, this works really well to stay on atleast a week without chip.

Essie Feed Me has done wonders for my nails. My nails tend to become dry and peel no matter how I care for them. I think it's caused by the dry Alberta climate. Really noticed a difference in less peeling and overall healthier nails within one month.
Best treatment I have ever used and will buy again.

My nails were super weak an dry and were peeling constantly. I bought these on a trip to Las Vegas which, due to the weather, made this problem even worse. I could tell a difference within a day or two and my nails have gotten better and better. I will keep this in my routine as I haven't had any tears since starting to use it.

this product seems to be performing okay. it does seem to be moisturizing base coat. it's more liquidy than most polishes. i really meant to buy the essie get rich but i bought this based on the description of it being moisturizing. i probably won't repurchase because there are other products that have much better feedback and i prefer a thicker polish to hydrate my dry nails. i agree with the other review that the type of remover used can play a role on how dry the nails get.

Feed Me did not help hydrate my nails that I noticed; I used it four times under my base coat because my nails split and peel terribly. My nails continued to split; every one of them and I noticed no increase in strength or flexibility. I paid $8 and returned it; it was not worth the money to me.

I gave this a couple months before reviewing, just to make sure.
I have thin, soft natural nails that tend to peel if I don't take care of them. They also tend to grow out with vertical ridges, which are the worst on the ring fingernails. I didn't have high hopes for this--I didn't have high hopes for anything, to be honest--but I had to try it.
My nails will always be thin and soft, but the Feed Me has...fed me. They are now tough and flexible, the peeling has completely stopped, and the surface is smooth and even, almost as if I had buffed it. It even seems to have helped smooth out the ridges somewhat.
At first I didn't think it was doing anything, but what really kicked things off and made it start working was when I stopped the use of pure acetone for removal. I still use it for cleanup, but now that I no longer routinely dry out my nails twice a week with harsh acetone (switched to a moisturizing acetone-based formula remover for normal use), it was like the Feed Me said "at last, I can finally shine!"
It is easy to apply and it feels like a relief when on. (I know nails have no feelings but you just have to take my word for it.) Dries quickly and I don't even bother using a separate basecoat any more. It does seem to help my polish stay on. My NP doesn't chip for days and days.
If this hasn't worked for you and you want to give it another try, I recommend you quit acetone removal and start moisturizing with creams and oils in conjunction with the Feed Me, then see how it goes. I really feel that if you help it along a little and don't start it out on an uphill climb with all the additional drying agents, you might have a better experience--everyone is different, but this is what made it work for me, and work very well at that. Love this.

I'm not sure if this is meant to be a treatment or a base coat. It dries slightly tacky, makes my polishes chip, and hasn't done much to help my nails grow longer, stronger or stop peeling. I wouldn't recommend anyone to waste $8 on this.

Didn't do anything for me. I used this faithfully for almost 2 months and my nails are still a peeling mess. On to the next one...

My nails are a peely so I figured I would try something different at first I though this stuff was making my nails worse but now after sticking it out for 12 days I see some improvement. My nails grew a little faster then normal and I have had a little less peeling. The little ridges in my nails still look the same. As far as my wear on my polish this base coat seems about average. After two12hr nursing shifts I had some tip wear and some minor chiping after. (at work I was my hands a ton). I used this under dark polishes and didn't exprience staining. I do think this base coat is a little pricey for something I bought in the drugstore at $8.
