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.
Well, I don't know if this is a good base coat. It is the first one I've ever bought. I didn't notice anything different with my polish and I haven't taken it off yet. I will say that is definitely appears that my nails are both stronger and growing at a faster rate. I don't know what would be in this product that would make them grow faster though. I'm pleased but will probably try other lines in the future to see what else is out there.3
Even though I am pregnant and on prenatals I have noticed my nails are still easily chipping as well as peeling. So I figured I'd give this base coat a shot! I'm a frequent OPI and Essie user but wanted to try something different. I really like the easy application of this base coat and hope that over time the calcium-enriched aspect helps to strengthen my nails. I also enjoy wearing reds so I have high hopes for the "yellowing" aspect to be minimal as the polish promises. I have worn the base just as is without any polish and it's a nice shiny coat that looks nice even without a colored polish over it.5
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.5
My nails are stronger and longer, first product that has worked for me in years. Goes on well as a base coat.5
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!5
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!)4
This works really well as a base coat, but also as a stand alone with two coats. The color is a very subtle white.4
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.5
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.5
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!
