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!
