Dreams Nail Lacquer Calcium Base Coat

We don’t like to call our nails “weak”—rather, we prefer to think of them as “growth-challenged.” Fortunately, now that we have this fortifying nail enamel, we no longer have to deal with such derogatory descriptors, The calcium-enriched formula strengthens nails and prevents telltale yellowing. Not only that, but the fast-drying lacquer also works as a mani-extending base coat.

I'm obsessed.

This stuff has worked a miracle on my weak, peeling nails. They are white and strong and amazing, almost from first use. Even got admiration from nail tech at last mani/pedi. Hasn't worked any better as a base coat for me than others but is the best treatment I can remember trying. I'm buying it for all the women in my family. It's life changing.

Love this product for my brittle nails!
Purchased

Two coats of this polish helped my weak, bending and peeling nails grow out and last for more than a week. What a great product and nice neutral, off-white color. Love this product!

Help for problem nails
Purchased

I like this product by itself for a nice shine and as a base coat, it extended my color by about 3 days (and I type all day and do crafts/paint a lot as well, so that is really saying something!)

Great base/color
Purchased

This works really well as a base coat, but also as a stand alone with two coats. The color is a very subtle white.

Dreams Nail Base Coat

The polish definitely has a strong odor, but it goes on nice and smooth and creates a good surface for applying polish. It's more of a translucent shade so it also won't detract from your top coat, but can make a sheer coat somewhat more opaque.

great nail treat!

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!

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!
