I've used Pink Gel Coat for several years, just ordering a new bottle today. Although this formula protects and strengthens nails, which is a bonus, I use it primarily as a base coat. It is exceptional in this regard, keeping polish from staining my natural nails as well as helping it to adhere like crazy without chipping for much, much longer than without. Worth buying. I ordered my new bottle at Dermstore.com, which offered a 20% discount and free shipping, for a total price including tax of under $26. Everywhere else, it is $30. I wish it was less expensive and that it came in a prettier packaging instead of the boring Boston round bottle it is offered in. But it lasts me forever, and does such a great job that I am happy to repurchase when I finally run out, or find that the last quarter inch has become too thick to use.

I bought the promotional 4 pack directly from Perfect Formula. The packaging is horrible. The bottle is not easy to use, and the brushes come apart from the lids, which makes it totally useless if you don't have another bottle with a cap that works. The color is nice, but the polish tends to peel or crack after about 2 days.

I had this in the ruby and it came with two bottles of the base coat and two bottles of nail polish. The ruby added a really nice pink color to my nails and a lovely sheen. The problem however, was I could not get any of it to last on my nails past an hour. It chipped immediately and I would just be typing on my computer. Really doing nothing. I tried with base coat, making sure my nails were scrupulously clean, all kinds of tricks and no change. I had to return the kit. What a shame because it really did make my nails look great.The bottles with their round lids were old school and needed a revamp. Hard to hold and I worried about tippage the entire time I was putting on the color. And cost of kit was $35, so 8.75 dollars a bottle. Not particularly cheap but not excessive if these had been stellar products.

Very pretty, sheer, just barely pink polish/strengthener. I use it on it's own and it makes my nails look much healthier. Gives a nice shine and the pink makes the tips of my nails look whiter and overall better. I do find that this peels and chips fairly quickly (about 2 days) and is very expensive for a product that needs to be touched up so fast. Would not repurchase because of this. If it was cheaper I would likely rebuy but instead I'm going to look for a dupe.

I obtained a free sample of this polish and was excited to try it as I am a huge fan of the Dior version of this product. The Perfect Formula is super pretty: glossy clear coat with an effect that makes the nail appear pinker and healthier. Note that the color enhancing effect only lasts for a few days (same deal with Dior). The Perfect Formula polish somehow peels off of my nails within 3-5 days of application. So weird! The Dior formula doesn't do this for me so I will be sticking with Dior.

I bought the 4 pack of the Perfect Formula polishes. It included this pink gel coat, a regular gel coat, my perfect top coat, and a strong nail system nail oil. I'm glad I bought these during an ipsy sale because I wouldn't pay full price. I would not recommend these whatsoever. There are plenty of other brands that provide the same pink gel and regular gel costs, top costs, and oils. The packaging is horrendous. Every bottle except the oil has broken in the few months I've owned these. The lid comes undone from the brush making it difficult to even use these. On top of that they are all already drying out. The top coat completely destroyed and dried out because of the broken lid I believe. And the other two polishes are already thick. There's also hardly any product in these. The oil is the only one that's held up that I still use. Out of all my nail polish cheap and expensive, these bottles have broken and dried out before others that I've owned for a long time. These are crap in my opinion and I would not buy them again.

I got this as a trial sized freebie from Sephora. I've tried the Sally Hansen pink 'hard as nails' before and figured this would be similar. Then I saw the price tag of this and couldn't believe it. I figured I'd better just enjoy my sample because no way would I ever pay that.My hands go through A LOT. They are constantly in water, scrubbing things, etc and if I wear polish, it chips right away. Even clear doesn't work for me unless I reapply daily as it dulls and chips. My natural nails look so dull and rugged with nothing on them and I always want to hide my hands. Over a week after applying this, my nails still looked like I just stepped out of a salon. If there were chips, I couldn't see them and my nails still had that beautiful polished glow. My nails looked brighter and healthier. I felt pampered and pretty, I kept looking at my hands.As a busy mom whose nail polish never makes it for more than a day, this is the perfect, low maintenance polish to make me feel more put together. At this rate, it would probably take the better part of a year to go through the sample bottle. So if I did run out of this - yes, I actually would repurchase at full cost! It takes literally seconds to slick on a coat of this, my nails look so much nicer and the effect lasts for over a week... I'm sold.My natural nails were strong to begin with so the 'strengthening' aspect wasn't much of a selling point for me, and I can't really comment in that department other than this stuff certainly did not make my natural nails worse. It finally got sunny here and I got to see how different they look in the sun. Hard to describe... still a glossy natural look but they kind of look like a uv light? I know that was a turn off to some reviewers but I thought it looked pretty cool.

I wanted to try this forever but held off due to the price and mediocre reviews. I received the deluxe sample via sephora recently. Used it at least 4x. My nails are naturally long and strong so here's my review... The Good... The polish gives a nice sheer wash of pink to the nail bed after one coat. After 2 or 3 coats the pink color is much more prominent and the nail tip is indeed white. It dries to a high gloss finish and creates a stronger nail. Which is good. My already long nails look rather perfect. It's very pretty however... The Bad... This polish makes my nails a little brittle making it prone to breakage. It also does not last long on the nail. It peels extremely easily, which I don't mind since I have a bad habit of peeling nail polish off. I don't notice any faster growth to my nails, mainly because my nails grow fast on their own. I have been using this as a base coat for now but would not repurchase or recommend because for $30 there are tons of other nail treatments for a fraction of the cost.

I love the way this makes my nails look, so much brighter and healthier looking. I don't even want to put on colour because I really like this by itself.

Yay yay did i say yay!!!!! My nails are soft and break easily. Thankfully i prefer a shorter nail. This being said i love the stuff. Glided on easily and makes my dull nails glossy and healthy looking. I feel like i just got a salon manicure. I am hard on my hands and this polish holds up
