My nails are weak and brittle. This stuff helps A LOT and gives a nice, strong base. You could even wear it alone, because it not only gives a "whitish" color, but it's pearly looking. It's a great nail strengthener and additional polish to add to your collection.
Love and will continue to use.
I bought this based on the reviews and was impressed. The cost is very much so worth what you get. Usually when I paint my nails the color lasts 24hrs max before chipping. When I used this as a base coat, I went 6 days! And even then, chips were minimal. In the past I liked to get my nails done professionally once every 4 weeks, because painting my nails every 3 days is annoying and no one has time for that. But now, I have cut that cost because Dream Nails keeps my hands looking good for much longer... finally, at home painting is worth it!
Additionally, the color is subtle enough that just wearing the base coat gives you a sheen and makes nails look healthy in a natural hue. If you use two coats, it looks like a french manicure color in my opinion, which is great as well, because it serves yet another purpose (assuming you have white polish and a steady hand to paint tips white). Love this product and will continue to purchase!
i love this base coat; i have very oily type nails and this helps to prolong my manicure. even though its pricey i was pleased with the quality.
Strengthened my nails
My nails break all the time because I use my hands a lot in my job, so I was happy to discover this product. I started using it and my nails don't break nearly as much as they used to, so I think I have found my new favorite base coat!
I love this base coat. I can actually feel that my nails are stronger and less likely to break when I use it as a base coat to my regular nail polish.
I typically don't wear nail polish as it seems to never last very long. My nails grow out, chip, break off. This base coat is really amazing. My nails seem stronger and best of all, polish lasts longer after applying this base coat. Definitely recommend.
Product Different Than What is Shown on BirchBox
I like the this stuff, but here is the full story.
Just received this base coat and I was worried at first. The bottle looks different than on the website, its actually 15ml not 14, the logo is white not black, and the top is a thin cylinder not the big square one in the photo.
After some research I was sure it was the right product (as the bottle doesn't say what it is.) In my research I also found that this is made by a Bay Area company which is cool since I live in the bay area. Go local when you can!
It smells really strong of nail polish, more so than others and took me aback for a second.
I liked how fast it dried and how easily my color nail polish went over it. Now i don't know if this is a function of my black nail polish but it didn't sit on the top coat well. When i went to correct the edges around my cuticle it grabbed some of the nail polish off in a big patch, like it was just floating over the top of the nail. I didn't see that issue with my other color nail polishes though.
So far i'm happy with it.
strengthens bendy nails
I've used this twice, and I'm happy with how it gives a strong, smooth base for color polish. My nails frequently are too flexible to hold a manicure for very long- they bend and the polish cracks off. This base coat seems to be solving that problem!
Love this base coat!
This base coat is awesome. I like to wear dark colors, lots of purples and reds and this base coat really protects my nails and keeps them healthy. Hands down the best base coat I've found.
Long, strong nails
I tried this base coat for the first time after getting a sample in my Birchbox. After 10 days, I had virtually no chips and after removing my nail polish, I had longer, stronger nails! My nails usually split or peel once they start to grow out, but not after using this!
