Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Great I have nails that shred and chip all the time. This base coat made my nails very hard, but not brittle. It holds Julep polish like no other. I did some quick dishes without gloves and I had ZERO chipping. It is seriously amazing base coat. The base coat dries super fast to a matte finish, by the time you finish one hand the first nail is dry. This product completely exceeded my expectations and it is now on the list of products that I do not want to be without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love this Base Coat Ok! So, I have "alright" nails to start with, but they would only grow to a certain point, then break. I tried so many base coats that were supposed to help, but never did. I have only used this base coat once and my nails have grown considerably. Normally, my pointer finger nails do not grow at the rate of the others, but they are all growing wonderfully. I could not understand why my nails were growing so nicely. I literally had to sit and think what I had done differently and it was this base coat. It dries quickly and certainly works. I will never be without this base coat, believe me!! LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, restored my nails in two weeks! I do my nails once a week, had been having trouble finding a new base to replace my old one (which i wasn't finding in stores).. anyway, this one came in my maven box and it is AMAZING. my nails were peeling and very fragile… after two weeks using it, they are looking GOOD! and feel very strong. I'm impressed. it won me over!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from After a few uses, products gets thick and clumpy Like others, I liked this base coat at first, but after 3 or so uses (over the course of weeks, not months) it started getting too thick to apply smoothly. Moreover, there are tiny clumps/crystals that have formed in the formula, so that after you brush on a coat you have little hard bumps to try to pick off your nail prior to applying your color. I've been careful to notice that these crystals/clumps are not from the edge of the bottle where the formula might have gotten dried out, so I'm not sure where they are coming from. It makes the base coat rather frustrating to use. I wouldn't buy it again.
