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.

Nice base coat
Sampled

This is a nice base coat, but it really didn't dry fast enough for me. I put this on before nail strips. The strips seemed to move around, and that never happens with my normal ridge filling base coat. Not a winner for me, but it may be for you. Love Birchbox though!

Nice all around

Love the color on its own or as a base or top coat to mute out a bright color. I have not seen strengthing effects to my nails yet but time will tell if the calcium works.

liked it

This is the first time I used a base coat and so far I like it. My nail polish has chipped less and my polish went on smooth!

Great!

Polish stayed on, without chipping, for a week and a half. Even through work and other activities, the polish didnt remove. Great product!

So far, so good
Sampled

My nails are subjected to a challenging life, but this product gives them a bit more hope. The calcium can't hurt and it smoothed my ridge-y, rough nails beautifully.

Just what I need!

My nails don't do well after a manicure or two, so this will come in handy. I just put it on, so we'll see if it actually strengthens my nails, but so far so good!

Not for Me

I don't feel like I need this, my nails are pretty strong. The packaging looks very unprofessional.

Nail color

Well, this product has not been my favorite. The color is just... blah. Nothing to really say about it, goes on clear and gives your nail a shine but nothing to special. Kindof thin as well. Not my favorite item.

Love it!

This goes on like a sheer white color, dries quickly, and enhances my nail polish color. I love this in every way. It's perfect!
