I've never used a base coat before and just did a clear nail polish. Well, it ruined my nails. They got really dry with white spots all over the nails. I've been using the essie base coat for a couple of weeks now and already seeing the improvement. Will never put a nail polish without a base coat ever again!

I'm using this for the first time and so far it seems to deliver. I have VERY thin nails, so my nailpolish tends to chip within 24 hours (huge bummer), but so far, this appears to have staying power, though there has been some slight chipping at the tips. Overall, it appears to grip the color well and Essie is a reliable brand.

I love this product! I couldn't wait to use it. I have an issue with nail polish chipping off like 2 or 3 days after I paint them. This stuff helps so much. Thanks guys!

This is a really good nail base to give your nails that first layer of protecton against cracks, splitting, etc.

I can't really tell a difference between when I use this base coat and when I use none. It doesn't seem to make my nail polish last any longer or prevent chips. Sometimes the entire coat of polish will peel off my nail a day or two after applying this beneath my color coat. I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much from a base coat, but I am rather disappointed especially since I am usually such a fan of Essie products.

I was looking for a good base coat that wasn't too expensive. This does the job. It keeps my nail polish on longer and it dries very quickly! Love it

I love Essie polishes because of their consistency and their perfectly sized brushes (not to big, not to small). Because I liked their nail polishes so much I decided to try their base coat. I have used several different base coats before and I can't say that this was the best base coat, but it also wasn't the worst. It dried very quickly and had a good slightly rough consistency so that the color nail polish can stick to it well. I did not get the best wear time out of this however, my nails where chipping on the tips and even the sides of my nails in 2-3 days. Overall, it's not a horrible base coat but it's probably not the best either. If you are looking for a fast drying base coat that helps you get your nails done quickly, and you don't care that they last for a whole week, this is base coat for you. If you are looking for a long wearing base coat, I would try something else.
