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 loved what the sample did for my nails!
Purchased

If two weeks of this sample can repair my peeling nails as much as this teeny amount did, than I can't wait to see how much the regular bottle does, its on it's way to my home now! I love the little bottle and since I'm an artist I have teeny funnels to pour some of the full size product into my almost used up sample bottle. That way, I can keep it in my purse or in my travel bag. I really LOVE THIS STUFF! It's magic and I want it with me all the time!

lovely!

works like a charm! my nails feel stronger when using this as a base coat. why go spend money on a manicure when you can do your own with this?! just use this, a great color, grab a top coat and you are good to go!

yay! finally polish!

I was super excited to finally get nail polish in my box, but not so much this one. I like the quality of it okay, but the color was not my fave. I have gotten plenty of compliments, but personally I think it looks slightly better than nails painted with white out.

Works Well

I have brittle nails from years of biting, but when I use this product, my nails feel a lot stronger. I like that it's an opaque base coat, really helpful for making pale shades look good without tons of coats.

Not a bad product

It neither blew me away nor made things worse. Its a so-so kind of product.

Could really tell a difference

Could really tell a difference in the strength and appearance of my nails- they really seemed stronger and less likely to break!

Great product!
Sampled

I'm a nail tech and am pretty set in my ways as far as nail products go, but I really like this product! I really like that this product is opaque, and, as a few others have mentioned, this helps the color pop and also looks great on its own-pretty much 2 products in one! I have oily nail beds, so my nails usually chip pretty quickly, but they haven't chipped nearly as much when I use this base coat. Totally recommend it!

Pretty good!

I really like this base coat. I'm not sure if I'll switch to this one from the brand I already use, but I'll definitely use the whole sample!

Great Idea - great for after gel manicure effects
Sampled

This polish is the perfect solution for my nails that suffered after a gel manicure. Somehow it never comes off well, no matter what they do! It evened them out and gave a great base for any polish. Loving it and will buy.
