Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this base coat! I am a nurse and a swimmer who spends a lot of time in the pool or washing my hands. All of the chemicals in the pool and the 100 times a shift I wash my hands can/will cause your nail to break and split. I have been using grow stronger for 4 weeks now and I notice a HUGE improvement in my nails! They are stronger, healthier, growing faster and they stopped splitting! I do my own manicures at home and my routine is 1 coat of grow stronger, 2 coats of any essie nail polish and no chips ahead top coat! I just adore essie products! Thanks essie!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from why are 0 stars not possible? one is too much.. I like using dark nail polish like reds and blacks and blues and greens. And some of those shades are hard to get off, discolor the nail even. I mainly bought this base coat to protect my nail from getting discolored. Every time I have used this base coat it has helped to get the nail polish off without any residue - because it just peels off! The nail polish comes off in one big flake sometimes! And that usually happens even as soon as the same day, on the second day at the latest. I am attaching a picture of starry starry night peeling off. I cannot get a better close up with my cell phone camera but you get the idea of how all the layers come off as one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best base coat on the market. Period. I've tried several different base coats over the years. The best I used were Essie but I wasn't in love with any - until I tried this one. Not only have I noticed a significant improvement in nail strength, but the thick formula makes a perfect smooth canvas for polish. My home manicures look professional when I use this base coat. I'm a life long user after just one bottle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to the selling promise I started using Essie Grow Stronger nail base and I love it. My nails were always breaking and cracking. Now my nails are STRONG! They don't split anymore and are firmer and growing nicely. I now get frequent compliments on my nails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strengthening Af ive been trying to strengthen my nails for a good 2 years because they are very weak. yesterday while shopping with my cousin we went into sephora and i was looking at all the nail polishes when a guy came over to help me. he asked if tere was a color i would like him to help me find and i said i was just looking as my nails were too weak to paint and he offered the base to me. To be honest i didnt belive that it would do what e said but bought it anyways cuz he was cute. but that night i painted a layer on my nails and this morning i saw a great difference in my nails. Really love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I've always had thin, weak nails & have tried just about every "strengthening" product out there. This is one that actually works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! I used to religiously buy OPI products, but I am slowly switching to Essie because it is Formaldehyde free. I have been pleased by the results in comparison to the OPI base coat. While using OPI, my nails split and peeled horribly, but now they are almost back to the way they used to be. Thank you, Essie! :)
