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.

Such a fun color!

I have the mint green color and it's so cute for this time of year! Goes on smooth, and my nails didn't feel weakened when I took it off, which is always great!

Okay, not great
Sampled

My OPI color did stay on well with this product but it wasn't chip-free. I didn't notice a difference in breaking or brittle nails, but I don't usually have that problem.

Not to bad
Sampled

I loved that this was free of chemicals, I am always looking for something that I can use along with my toddler other than PiggyPaint. This was a great find for that!! As far as a base, i didnt use it for that but to see how it looked alone. Not bad, lasted much longer then most base coats. As far as strength, i dont know since my nails are already in pretty good shape. The only issue i had, was it looked as if it leaked in my box-that was not fun!!!

Good alone, not as base coat
Sampled

I liked this product but not as a base coat. I applied it as a base coat before my polish and my polish came off much faster than when I use my normal base coat. I have since used it alone while trying to revive my nails.

Goopy Package, Great Product
Sampled

The sample I received of this product looked like something had spilled all over it, however my box seemed dry so I went ahead and used it. I really like the extra strength it gives to my nails. The subtle shine is nice too. It would have been an easy 5 stars if the bottle didn't look like someone else's leftovers!

Life Changing Base Coat

This really helped strengthen my nails. I have really thin nails that tend to break easily. I also have very yellow nails and I saw dramatic after use.

Liked the product

I did like that this base protected my nails very well. I currently use another brand that works just as well, so I probably won't rush to buy this one. My nails break very easily and this helped to prevent that very well.
